Regarding his link up with the Illmatic spitter, Mill told The Boombox: "I always been a fan of Nas, my whole life. One time I saw him coming out of Club Liv [in Miami]. We both were wasted and he was just telling me about how he fu--ed with my music and you know, a couple months later, I contacted him and he came right to the studio, dropped it off and we put it together."
  • Nas explained the meaning of his closing couplet, "I made it so I'm chillin. Transparent ceiling now," to Rap Genius: "My world view changes the more I learn. I learn daily," he said. "Win some Lose some = the magnificent uncertainty … The beauty of life."
