Producer: Buckwild

Before Black Rob gave us 100 different ways to act surprised in the hood ("Finger near a ni**a asshole like whoa"), the beat for his Bad Boy single was originally shopped at Roc-A-Fella Records. Producer Buckwild handed it over to A&R Lenny S., who in turn gave it to Jay-Z but to no avail. Memphis Bleek and Amil also took a pass on the record, which gave Black Rob the green light to go in over this grimy backdrop.
