The motherf***er performs some sh*t that was so incredible and then he goes, ‘I got a song that I think you’ll be good on’. We go in the studio and he said the song goes, ‘She said she want some Marvin Gaye, some Luther Vandross’, okay young fellow I got it, let me sing it for you. ‘She said she want some Maaaaaarvin’ and he was like, ‘uh don’t do that’.

He went from that smile, to the frown, you know who he be like. I’m thinking he ain’t gonna make it, this song is whack right, I go do a bad movie, for like 12 weeks. It’s number 1 in the country. That’s how the music was birthed. So it came out of something organic, it was a hit song so that opened the door for me to then, further go on and, you know do other things”
