FROM TECH N9NE'S PERSPECTIVE
On how he first reacted when he heard the beat for “B.I.T.C.H.”:
The beat told me to say it. Sometimes I just listen to the beat and I’m like, ‘wow, that’s creepy sounding, so when I say creepy, I’m like creeping…nah, I’m not creeping, I’m breaking into colored houses. I got the title right when I listened to the beat, and after that, all the content started coming. I haven’t told anybody this ever, but the first idea I had was to get Future to do the chorus. [But] T-Pain is the homie, and I never met Future, so I didn’t know how to go about it, so I said, ‘I’ma call my nigga that I know can get it done.’ Not that Future couldn’t get it done, but I know that T-Pain could get it done, and he got the motherfucker done.
On how the recording happened:
Seven got the beat to me, via e-mail or something, and I loved it. And, I came up with the thing, and I recorded my verses like a couple days later. After I recorded it and got a good mix on it, I sent it to T-Pain and he hit me right back. He felt it, and I’m so glad he felt it. I made the right choice.
