The Lox appeared on the Jay-Z track alongside Beanie Sigel and Sauce Money.
While speaking to Genius’ Rob Markman on the latest episode of For The Record, Jadakiss recounted how The Lox’s appearance on the track came about. The pair had just returned to New York City after performing a string of shows, when they received the call that Jay-Z wanted to do a song with them.
“So we’re like, ‘That’s cool. We’re gonna go home, put our luggage [away],” Jadakiss recounted. “And they were like, ‘Nah, [Jay] wants you to come there right now.’ We ain’t got carry-ons. We got big shit we had to check. So that put us on edge a little, ’cause we always lookin’ at it like, ‘If [Jay] just landed, would he just come to the studio with his luggage? No!’ But that was a good edge.”
From there, Markman begins to recite P’s verse from “Reservoir Dogs,” with the opening lines being:
I don’t give a f*ck who you are, so f*ck who you are
I don’t care about a pretty bitch, watch or a car
I don’t care about your block and whoever you shot
I don’t care about your album and whenever it drop
I don’t care about your past if I did I woulda asked
I’m too busy lighting ‘dro with a whole lotta hash
Jadakiss revealed that P was going at Jay with the verse, saying: “He was going at Hov on there. Hov was like, ‘Well, it sounded like you talking about me on it.'”
Elsewhere in the interview, Jadakiss also discussed the disses he faced from Beanie Sigel on “Beanie (Mac Bitch),” and why he pushed back the release of his fifth studio album Ignatius following Pop Smoke’s death.
