“I hooked with Premo when I was signed to Tommy Boy. He was naturally one of the first people I tried to go after for production. He was one of the first producers I wanted to work with. I just got lucky.
For production, I used my man Ty Fiffe, Neptunes, Trackmasters, Dj Premier, Carlos Broady, Reef, and others. We changed it to version 2.0 because it got leaked to the net real bad. We were going to come with different names. We added more street joints. The original had more radio friendly songs. I kind of updated it, made it more underground, gave it a more raw feeling.”
I got with Columbia, had a lot of stuff done but also made a lot of new stuff. Then, it got leaked. Columbia and I were wondering if we should put it out as is, change the songs, or what? So, that is when Koch Entertainment stepped up to the plate. They wanted to put it out. Some people already had most of the material. Some of the material was old but also, others didn’t have it. So, Koch and I wanted to set the record straight. We want to lay the groundwork for everything we are about to do in the future.”
