“The concept was to have somebody who was a wizard with the samples, sample somebody who creates his own music so we won’t have to clear anything,” Royce tells WatchLOUD.com. “And we’ll just have a project that we could put out for the fans. Somewhere along the line it just ended up being an album. I kept having to push Preeme for ‘1 more or 2 more.’  Every time we got to a point that felt like we were somewhere I felt like we needed one more thing to round it out. I started to get more of a vision as we were doing it. The Adriane Young thing was a way for me to work with him and do this project with Premier that I’ve been wanting to do since ’99.”

Watch as Royce and Premier talk about rounding up guest appearances for the project and which legendary MC wasn’t able to make the final cut.
