Originally, it was to a different beat, and it was called “Trigger Happy Nigga.” Back in the days, we would always do the songs at my house on a cassette 4-track. So we did it, and B-Real rapped the song, and one line in the song said, ‘Here is something you can’t understand/How I could just kill a man.’ But I didn’t pay too much [attention] to it.
Time went on, and I made the ‘Kill a Man’ beat. And when I made that beat, he came to the house, and kicked the same “Trigger Happy Nigga” rhyme, and I heard [the line], ‘Here is something you can’t understand/How I could just kill a man,’ and then he went right into the second verse. And I was like, ‘Hold up. That’s the hook right there.’ So we made that the hook.
