    Oh and by the way, people think he came up with that Devil’s Son ’98 verse later on, but he actually originally wrote four verses for the song and that one got cut. So in a way it’s like the lost fourth verse.

    “Now check it out, I got this song right? This shit dropped like ‘bout five years ago…when I was a little nigga right? But this verse never came out and shit, so I’m a kick this remix shit for y’all, y’all probably never heard it. You heard the beat though, but I’m a switch the rhymes. Throw that shit on…” ~ Big L live in Amsterdam, October 8th, 1998
