SameOldShawn: I was thinking about your outros. I think they're so funny -- the thing about how you looked at your friend's Bar Mitzvah, and the outro where you start reading from books. Do you write those in advance?

Meyhem Lauren: It's completely off the top of the head. It's never planned. Sometimes, at the end of a record, I'll just say things. It's almost like freestyling. Not freestyling in rhyme form, but I just say whatever, and it usually works. Very rarely do I cut one

The one with the books, that was the only time where I read something for an outro. And that was because I did so many outros on the project, the producer I was working with, my man ATG -- shout out to ATG -- he's like, "Yo, you gotta do an outro for this, it's the last song." And I said, yo, I've already said anything I could possibly think of. So I just grabbed two random books off his shelf. One was a Chinese history book, and the other one was some sort of Indian history book, and I just went to random pages, read some things, and we called it a night
