[SOHH highlights a hot single each week and offers a unique look at the record. The Pharcyde's SlimKid3 breaks down his new "Another Day, Another Dollar," Mistah Fab explains what it takes to be the greatest.]
I was at the airport the other day skimming through a rap magazine and noticed I had got a quotable for my verse on this song.
I was like, "Yo, I got a quotable! Oh sh*t!
For one, to get a quotable is dope. I'm from Oakland: They don't recognize us for being dope lyricists even when we rhymin' our a** off so to get a quotable in a publication was amazing. That was dope.
But wait -- to get a quotable on a song with Jadakiss and Noreaga was that much better. Jada and Noreaga are on that song.
"Probably the Greatest" is basically saying you'll probably be the greatest but these n*ggas will never say it. No matter how hard you work. That's a message to everybody. You can be the best, but the critics are so hard on people that they'll never give you full credit for what you do. So don't worry about it, just continue working and fulfilling your dreams. That's what the song is about.
