[With his new "Low" music video bubbling online, New York rapper The Kid Daytona gives SOHH the scoop on how Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg playing "Low" on his radio show sparked Jadakiss' involvement.]
Me and Jadakiss hooking up really all stems from Peter Rosenberg. That's why it wouldn't have been right without having Peter in the ["Low"] music video because he was the one that connected the dots for me to get Jada.
Jada told me this himself, this is like another thing that I'll never forget in life, ever. But while we were shooting the video, he came to me and said, "Yo, the way you said that line, 'I be up in Greenhouse with Nicole Kidman.' No lie, I told the engineer to rewind that joint like three times." He was like, "Yo, you just sounded convincing like, "Who is this kid?"
He's like, "It really sounds like he be up in Greenhouse with Nicole Kidman." You know how Jada talks and it was just ill that Jada was dissecting my verses.
This whole time I'm thinking, "D*mn, he didn't just do [his verse] as a favor to Peter but he really, really likes the record." You know?
And then prior to that, I had met up with him at a couple of parties that he was doing because he had just put out his mixtape with DJ Drama and I went to join him at the release party for it and then I had gone to something he had did with, I want to say EA Sports, it was like something for Madden at the time. I'm not sure, but yeah, everything just came together.
It was an organic thing, like something that was supposed to happen.
