Big Boi: "That is one of the first albums that I ever got an ass-whooping for listening to. Me and my brother were listening to it. We had that, and we had Eazy-E's Eazy-Duz-Italbum. And my mom came home from work, and she heard us listening to that through the door, and we got our ass whooped. We still kept listening to it though, but not in the house.

"You know, it's like when a little kid is not supposed to do something and they still do it. Like, we used to have a little cousin who was like five or six, and we used to make him repeat shit like, 'Your ass, bitch,' and record him saying curse words. Shit was raunchy. Plus the beats, the bass music. That's where a lot of the influence came from, the 808s and stuff like that. So, gotta give a shout out to Uncle Luke for puttin' it down."
