DITCâ€™s Buckwild sat down and chatted it up with the people at Complex about his extensive catalog of productions.
On Biggieâ€™s I Got a Story To Tell:
â€œThat was originally meant for Foxy. Tone from Trackmasters picked the beat for Foxy, and Foxy heard it, then she said, â€˜Itâ€™s the worst beat I heard in my life.â€™ But you canâ€™t knock it because Foxyâ€™s album is so dope and has so many hits on it. So fast forward to next year. Biggie does the song, Foxy comes in, she hears it, and goes, â€˜Big, this got to be the best record on your album.â€™ And then I called Tone and said, â€˜Yo, this the same beat I gave Foxy. I thought you said she didnâ€™t like it.â€™ Tone was just like, â€˜Man, donâ€™t pay attention to her.â€™
On Black Robâ€™s Whoa:
â€œLenny S gave the beat to Jay-Z, then Memphis Bleek, then Amil, and then other people. They all passed on it. So Rob does the record and a week later I walk into Def Jam, I hear Lenny playing the record going, â€˜I told yaâ€™ll this record is going to be crazy! All yaâ€™ll niggas slept on this record.â€™ That record kind of brought Bad Boy back.â€
On Big Punâ€™s Dream Shatterer (Original Mix:
â€œI remember we went to Mystic Studio in Staten Island. He went inside the booth and sat on a stool, and just breathed fire through the whole song. Iâ€™ve never seen him finish a song without doing punches.â€
