How He Got Back Into Music
“So I’m throwing this party and the way I got back, this kid walked in with a backpack on and his jaw was a little messed up. (Turns and asks the audience “Who am I talking about?”. Unbeknown to him it was Kanye West). So Kanye West comes to my crib and says I got this song for you called “Slow Jamz”. I say well I have a studio in the back but first I gotta hear you rap. He rapped and I said oh my God you’re the most incredible cat I ever heard. So we go in the back and he says, so the song go “she say she wants some Marvin Gaye some Luther Vandross…” so I said I got it [starts singing] and I’m doing all this R&B stuff and he’s like what the hell are you doing bro? And I said I’m tryna put the R&B sauce on it. He said don’t put sauce on it just sing it regular [he re-sings the song]. So after I sung it I said this song ain’t gonna make it. It don’t got no sauce on it, no sauce. And so I left and I did a bad movie [laughs]. I came back after my career was on life support and when I got back I went to Miami and they said you know that song you fronted on? It’s number 1 right now. So “Slow Jamz” went number 1 with Twista and then we went from that to…[starts singing "Gold Digger"]. So from that that’s how I got back into music.
