[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Rockie Fresh cruised into his "You A Lie' remix music video, The Kid Daytona breaks down his new Jadakiss-featured "Low" anthem and visual.]
The "Low" record in itself is something that I actually did in December. It came out on my mixtape The Interlude 2, it was just me and I had a different hook on it. It was just me and Harry Fraud. I met him a day before I actually did the record, got the beat and I just laid the joint. It came out real, real crazy.
[Hot 97's] Peter Rosenberg had been playing it on his show and Jadakiss caught wind of it. He was listening to Peter and hit Peter up like, "Yo, who is that? That record is dope." He had wanted to work with Harry Fraud and two weeks later, I got a 16 from Jadakiss.
Peter had sent him the instrumental and Jadakiss just sent him back the verse. It was so crazy. Then once we put the record out, Jada had hit me on Twitter direct message like, "Yo, everybody is loving the record, we should do the video."
The whole time, once I got Jada, I was just thinking, "D*mn, how am I going to get him to do the video?" He's a f*cking great. He's someone I looked up to since junior high school. The fact he hit me up for the video like, "Yo, we've gotta make this happen," we got Grey Goose involved, Creative Creation involved, they put the money up for the video and that's how we were able to get the penthouse.
I invited some chicks, some people I knew and the day before I was at a party with Travie McCoy and I met porn star Mellanie Monroe. I just hit her on direct message. Twitter really brought this whole music video together.
I told her we were shooting a video in the Lower East Side and she said she lived right over there and would come through. Soon as she came through the door, she got naked and did the shower scene. And then it was just on.
It was a good time. We just had fun in there.
