Posdnous of De La Soul recalled to Rolling Stone
: "When me and Dave worked in the mall, we would just hear songs playing in the loudspeakers. They would always play [Steely Dan's] 'Peg
' and we were, even then, aspiring to be a group, and we were like, 'Yo, that could be a dope song to use.' So, when it came about time to use it, we took that part 'I know I'll love you better,' we took the Lee Dorsey beat, we used the horns from another Mad Lads record ('Make This Young Lady Mine'), and that was it. It was fun. It was kinda my first time programming a beat."
