This song we dedicate
To the one and only
Never be another
He was my brother
Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth were deeply upset with the death of close friend Troy Dixon aka Trouble T Roy of Heavy D (and the Boyz), who died from an accidental fall at a concert. They made this song to cope with the pain of losing him.
I had a friend of mine that passed away, and it was a shock to the community. I was kind of depressed when I made it. And to this day, I can’t believe I made it through, the way I was feeling. I guess it was for my boy. When I found the record by Tom Scott, basically I just heard something incredible that touched me and made me cry. It had such a beautiful bassline, and I started with that first. I found some other sounds and then heard some sax in there and used that. Next thing you know, I have a beautiful beat made. When I mixed the song down, I had Charlie Brown from Leaders of the New School in the session with me, and we all just started crying.“ – Pete Rock
