FAMOUS QUOTES BY KURUPT
“That was the first one. You know, actually that was the remix to “G Thang.” Dr. Dre showed me that we could make two records off of one record. It was the “G Thang” remix, right?”
” He took certain pieces of music off of it and only kept the bass line, a key part and he kept the drums off of the “G Thang” remix. And then after he took of that other music, he kept those parts and said we are going to make a whole new record and he made a whole new record. Yep. That’s a “G Thang” remix and Dr. Dre took the music off of it. He kept a string part and he kept the keyboard part, he kept the drums and the bass line.”
“That’s another record that I went crazy. My main thing on “Puffin’ On Blunts,” though, is that I wanted to be known as one of the greatest MCs on the planet and I wanted to impress Dr. Dre. That was the inspiration behind “Puffin’ Blunts.” Definitely! Totally! You know what I’m saying? That’s basically what it was. I just wanted to destroy it. I always wanted to impress Dr. Dre and just express my skills.”
“It wasn’t even going after New York. It wasn’t a diss record. It really wasn’t. “New York, New York” was a record that we made in dedication to New York. We really felt that New York created hip-hop. New York created battle rap and the whole ball of wax so what I did was a battle rap on this beat DJ Pooh did.”
“That beat originally, DJ Pooh made it for Biggie Smalls for a St. Ides commercial. He made the beat and really I picked the beat and I was like, “Man, I love that beat. I want that.” Then he did a St. Ides commercial with Biggie Smalls and I heard it on the radio.”
