9th Wonder: "Fornever was recorded in Los Angeles in Inglewood, California. And you can tell by the beats. It just had that feel to it, and then Kurupt came through. Come on dude! That was crazy. He was on 'Live From Roscoe's' and he was on 'Fornever.' It was amazing. Murs said, 'I think we’ll get Kurupt on this album.' I was like, 'What?' It was my first time working with anybody from Tha Dogg Pound. There’s nothing like working with legends.
“‘Asian Girl’ was a record that I did, and I thought the sample had an Asian feel to it. I was on the plane and I came up with the hook. The concept was supposed to have Pharrell do the hook. We couldn’t get with Pharrell. So I did it myself, and E. Jones wrote my verse for ‘Asian Girl.’
”It’s a fun record. To be honest with you, I got a lot of flack from black girls. They were like, ‘Why are you talking about Asian girls?’ We could have talked about white girls if we wanted to.
"If you're an Asian rapper and you rap about black girls, I wouldn't take offense to that. If you're an Asian kid who grew up around black women, and everything you're saying is true, there's nothing I can say.
”Steven Spielberg directed The Color Purple. It was a movie about black people in the 1920s. He was right on point. Ain’t nothing I can say about that. Now, he could’ve made us look like coons, and then that’s something else.
”But that’s L.A. culture, and the album was themed around that. To be honest with you, I was in an argument with this black girl. She got mad because we did something about Asian girls. So I asked, ‘How many Murs albums have you bought?’ She said, ‘None.’ I said, ‘So shut the fuck up then!’ You know what I’m saying? Like, ‘Yo! Asian women support me and Murs. Ya'll don’t! So until you start buying our records, shut the fuck up.’”
