[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Mann deciphered his "3's Company" track, Lil Scrappy uncovers the new "Paws" anthem.]
I remember calling up Drumma Boy saying, "Lil Jon wants to do a record," and he was like, "Sh*t, I'm going to go ahead and do the beat." I hit up Jon and said Drumma wants to do the record with both of us.
I told him he wanted to bring the both of us out. He loved the idea and did the record.
I always record from home. I don't like to record on the road because it doesn't have that Atlanta feel to it. That's why I like to record in the A.
I wanted to attach myself back to my old fans when putting this record together. I wanted to make that type of music because it's being made nowadays anyway. I had actually tried to stay away from it because it was always causing so much drama but that's the type of music I like.
I like to move around, I like to jump, I'm d*mn near a rock and roll artist. I wanted to give life on the "Paws" and that's what I say. It makes sense to make a "Paws" record.
I tried to get Waka [Flocka Flame] on the record but you know, it doesn't always work out like that. So I just said I would do it by myself.
Crunk practitioner Lil Scrappy was born Darryl Richards in the ATL. Discovered by BME Recordings and Lil Jon, Scrap built his rep throughout the Southeast before breaking nationally in 2003 with the hit "Head Bussa." A split EP with fellow BME artists Trillville followed in February 2004, spinning off the single "No Problem." Crunk was never the same again. In 2006 the full-length Bred 2 Die Born 2 Live landed featuring the hit single "Money in the Back" with special guest Young Buck.
