Double Dee was the mad scientist who put it together, I just sent him a bunch of ideas and raw scratches to mix in. Big up ALF, thank you!
Avatar 7:08pm Billy Jam:

shout to space cowboy for spotting the samples - well two of them - and to ADA for his new alliance with DDS and that killer track - shout out to ALF + to GIO for doing engineering back in NJ today - coming up interview with Evidence that opens with him talking about this song specifically - so listen closely to lyrics
  7:08pm Double Dee:

Yo Billy! Thanks for the play! I guess we should make a "clean version" for you! Yes, it was a big kick working with ADA!

and the next/final interview today is with DJ Premier who is from Texas but has long lived in Brooklyn, NY
  7:50pm Devin B.:

Great interviews!
Avatar 7:52pm Billy Jam:

thanks Devin B - one of the advantages of pre-recording interviews is that you can edit them down (cut out the redundant stuff inc. interviewers questions etc)
