  • Hotelmotel from Hoppingbetweensidesofbc, BcGood.... Good people on this page of songfacts.com.... Good to see these ones aren't bashing rap... Way to go!
  • Jimoh from The Bronx Ny, NyAt the beginning of the video for this song, they show some girls taking food at a buffet. Their T-shirts show in turn "Eve", "Alicia Keys" "in" and "Gangsta Lovin'". For some reason, the video as shown on MTV fuzzes out the T-shirts.
