www.xxlmag.com/online/?p=15630How did Ignorant @#%$ first come about?What made you flip the Between the Sheets song?Nobody ever tried to flip that right?What tour was this?With Jay and 50 right?ing an album they dont want keep the earlier records cause they still trying to get in their zone. So you know, it kinda just sat for a long time and then the dude that was kinda part of the extended family got tricked into giving it away. Demarco tricked him and he gave him the record and it leaked obviously. I was super mad at the time, just more so of the circumstances and because of what it could have been used for later. But the good thing about it leaking is if it hadnt, Jay wouldve probably never realized how dope the song was.


The original version of the song has become notorious.


Exactly, cause its like Wheres Waldo? Everybodys trying to find the No DJ version. A couple people have the spliced No DJ version together, but none of them are really the official joint. So basically when it came time for Kingdom Comethe record was always in the back of my mind, but I just didnt feel like it fit Kingdom Come. Looking back, you know obviously it shouldve been on the Black Album, and I kinda have an idea what song it shouldve replaced but I wont say. But me and Jay both agree it shouldve been on there in place of another record that was on there. But, whats done is done, but at least when it came time for this album, thats one of the first things he wanted. When me and Jay first talked about the album, if nothing else, this song has to go on there. We both agreed that since people were familiar with the song in general that we got to switch it up a little bit. So the light bulb just went off, and I was like, Yo, you gotta get Beans. He was like, What you mean? The first thing Im a do is free Sigel. Boom. Thats where he needs to come in. And then, we went and got Beans, he did his 16 or whatever it was, Jay just came back and finished it off.


Were you surprised with the Imus direction on the third verse?


I just didnt know. Sometimes you just need someone of that stature. Jay-Zs obviously not the first to say something. But Scarface the movie did more than Scarface the rapper deals with the way people crucify music. Its not just hip-hop, its music in general. Cause there was a phase where rock and heavy metal was getting the same treatment. If not worse. And its like, when it comes down to it, its all just different forms of entertainment. Obviously, we should be smart enough to realize that most of these rappers are not running around doing everything they portray on records. If you look back even on the original OG version of the song, he says something to the effect of Believe half of what you see/Even if its spit by me.

And with that said I will kill @#%$ dead.

Exactly. Hes telling you right there, like we going to paint the picture. But at the same time its something he can relate to very well cause hes rhyming about where he comes from.


On the original version, he had the Beyonce verse on end which he started to do in concerts. How did that develop?

I know sometimes he would do it at shows, but it wasnt with the I Need Love music yet. And then I think it was during the Fade To Black show, we was in rehearsals, and I honestly dont remember exactly whos idea it was, it coulda been mine, it coulda been Ahmirs. But thats when it came about in the rehearsals, like You should flip I Need Love and do that verse over that. We knew that he was going to get a strong reaction so that kinda became a staple of his shows. So we couldnt go back and use that part on the record now after hes done it a million times in public.


Yeah its funny cause he mentions B on that and on PSA, another song you did.

Why is dude always mentioning his girl on your tracks?

I dont know. [Laughs]
Maybe its the aggression of the song. [Laughs]

The non-DJ version is kinda wack tho...I have it, but I'd rather listen to the Don Dimarco @#%$, cuz the non-DJ one cuts out part of the song

Quote:[hr][/hr]Nobody ever tried to flip that right?

Not that I know of. No ones ever used that. And I brought back the main part to keep it familiar [hums break] cause thats the part everybodys familiar with. So I kept that in there just to give it some familiarity, but used a different part of the record and we did it between my bus and my hotel room in Chicago.[hr][/hr]


No lie, I've ALWAYS wanted to use the "break"...that's why I was ecstatic when I first heard this song, cause it's damn near like he read my mind. I always thought that was the best part of the song, and it boggled my mind how out of the 10,000 times it's been sampled, nobody ever bothered to use it.
GR for now, but rumor has it Gentry's going to package it with a Toboggan and mitten set and sell it for $750

You know whatobviously we know that one year where it was used 80,000 times between Keith Murray, Da Brat, Biggie, Rob Base tried to do a comeback off of it, Lil Viciousit was like million records that used that part and I always thought the other part was the ill break. But, it wasnt the obvious part, everybody kept going for the same break. Thats kinda something thats always been in the back of my mind.

Storch flipped it for Cassidy Feat. Mario "Between The Sheets" and the Jim Jones Feat. Trey Songz joint.
