"Chris Rock is a friend of mine," Busta told SOHH. "He's a Brooklyn native, I'm a Brooklyn native. We've watched each other grow in the industry throughout the years. We homies. One day I seen him in Miami and I just had this idea for him to narrate the entire album. I went to L.A. and when I seen him in L.A., I gave him a call, told him to come down to the studio, see what was going on with the project so he could get an idea of the direction we were going and he heard it and he was with it. He did what he had to do right there on the spot." (SOHH)
Busta also explained why makes an effort entertain fans in a comedic fashion on his albums.
"With every one of my albums, I've always had some sort of comedy element," Busta added. "I've had [comedian] Dolemite on my previous albums, Mike Epps and now Chris Rock.
