GZA on The Making of Liquid Swords:
I have this cousin who we call Life. He sang a little bit of background on the album, and he was in the studio when we were making this track.
He was singing Stevie Wonder’s “Rocket Love” where the hook goes, “Took me riding in your rocket, gave me a star, but at a half a mile from heaven, you dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.” RZA was the one who told Life to change the words and use it as a hook.
