Album: Black Sunday
Label: Ruffhouse Records, ColumbiaDJ Muggs: “When I found that sample, I was like, ‘This shit is sick!’ That might’ve been one of the first songs we recorded for the Black Sunday album. And B-Real wrote it, and the shit was dope. But the problem was, we couldn’t clear the sample because the owners of the sample didn’t want us to call it ‘When the Shit Goes Down.’ So we changed it to ‘ship,’ but we didn’t even change the word [on the actual song]. But we told them we changed it, and we wrote ‘ship’ on the record, so they were like, ‘Okay, cool.’

“That was a funny thing, though. We get asked about that a lot. And I think De La Soul used that sample later, too, [on the intro to Buhloone Mindstate].”
