[SOHH highlights a hot record every week and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the smash in Singled Out. After Maino dished out how his "Watch Me Do It" anthem came together, Uncle Murda decodes his "What They Want" banger.]
One of my favorite records off the Ain't Nothing Sweet mixtape is the Jerry Wonda joint with Maino, Troy Ave and Raekwon.
Me and Jerry Wonda have been trying to do music for the longest now so we finally got into the studio with each other. He gave me the beat and I was like, "D*mn, this is crazy. Let me live with this for a little hour or two.
We were at Platinum Studios and I came up with the verse and I did the hook. Jerry came in there, heard it and was like, "D*mn, this is mean! We should get some people on this. Who do you want to holler at?"
I started playing with names like, "Maino, Troy Ave and Raekwon." Maino came in to do his verse and Tank happened to be in the studio. Me and Tank have a good relationship and he and Jerry Wonda rock. We asked him to get on there.
Tank did his little "New York, New York, one, two, one, two," and then everyone else put in their verse and now we're running around with a nice little East Coast record sounding real good.
Troy Ave's good. He's been doing this for a while. He's shining now but he's been doing this for a while. Shout-out to Troy Ave. I'm on his new mixtape that he put out on Christmas. He does what he do.
