Label: EMI, Columbia

Big Boi: "The quality of the production was incredible. And one of the things I loved most about her when I first got introduced to her music [by my uncle] was the stories she would tell in her music. And it wasn't like right in your face. You would kind of have to decipher what she was saying. There was a long gap between the time she released the album before this one and when this one came out, and it just had some jams on it. It was like real vibey.

"I didn't get a chance to make it across the waters to sit down with her [for Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors], but in the future we'll sit down over crumpets and tea and get it hashed it out. [She's familiar with my music], and she's cool. We spoke on the phone a few times."
