Kool G Rap: "That one was inspired by the track. Originally, the beat was the same sample that Geto Boys used for ‘Trigger Happy Niggas,’ ‘Memphis Soul Stew’ by King Curtis and the Kingpins. But then we changed it and it ended up being the single. When I was saying ‘get off the microphone,’ I was saying that to any and everybody at the time. I was taking the world on. It wasn’t directed at anybody specifically.
"Bell Biv DeVoe sampled my voice saying 'poison' on their song. I was honored because they were the members of New Edition. And everybody loved New Edition. They could be compared to the Jackson 5 because they were all young and they were making hot music. And that became one of their classic singles."
