That was a street single. That was the warm-up to let people really know what’s coming. Scoop DeVille actually came through with that joint and I got really fired up talking about how much fun I was going to have doing it. I was sold automatically. I laid it down, Dre came through, laid it down, and that was it.
That’s the only one I thought could be a radio smash. But I never wanted my debut to become a super big song because then you have to follow up with that. I don’t want my album—I don’t want my career to start at that highest point and then decline. I always wanted to climb higher with each step. Everything is set up for a reason.
