Mikey says: Last week, I took a stroll down memory lane with 1/3rd of the L.O.X. Arguably, the most underrated member of the crew, Sheek Louch held his own throughout his career amongst the New York Giants that he came up rhyming with. During our chat, Louch reminisced on recording some of his most memorable guest features including ‘Last Day’ , ‘Get At Me Dog’ , ‘Reservoir Dogs’ , and of course ‘It’s All About The Benjamins’ . (via VIBE)
Read on to hear how Missy Elliot made sure Puffy included Sheek’s verse on the Bad Boy classic….
“We thought it was our record at first, to tell you the truth. All three of us were kind of tight when Puff took our record. But for the ‘Benjamins’, he just called us to Daddy’s House one night to record and when we got there Puff had the beat on and this chick was just dancing by herself… some crazy shit with her feet [laughs]. Then, of course, he tells us to just rhyme over it. ‘I’m strictly trying to cop those…’ And the girl was like, ‘That’s it, keep that whole verse.’ I didn’t even know at the time that it was Missy Elliott. [laughs] She was on the one who told Puff to keep my verse. And we started writing Puff’s verse. Actually Styles didn’t the make original version. He laid a verse but Puff wasn’t feeling it. I’m staring at an MTV Moon Man from that record right now. Man, shouts to the band Fuzz Bubble who did the rock remix. We went crazy at that video shoot.” – Sheek
