Does C talk to somebody in particular here?

Percy Mack said...

Methlab and I had speculated that he was talking about Smoke D.

scjoha said...

What's their history? I think Smoke D is the guy speaking the interludes on Ridin Dirty?

Percy Mack said...

Yeah. He was also on the O.G. version of "Front, Back & Side to Side" that can be heard on Trill Azz Mixez, though it's mixed with the beat to "Pussy, Weed, Alcohol." Anyway, apparently Pimp's verses on "Da Game Been Good to Me" were directed at Smoke, because he was trying to snitch on Pimp. The track was originally just a Pimp solo that wasn't supposed to see release because of the disses; they had to take out Pimp's second verse and replace it with one from Bun be able to put it on 4 Life.

Thanks for the info. Hm, Google doesn't yield many results on Smoke D and nothing about him snitching. Do you know more?

Percy Mack said...

Not really. Just this tidbit from BBS in the UGK thread @ WOS:

"he was gonna re do his lyrics mainly the 3rd verse...

if C gets to a studio when hes pissed he gonna record bout you and the shit with Smoke D went down while C was at the studio... his intention was to changed the 2nd and 3rd verse (they deleted C's second verse to put Bun on)"
