  • Method Man explained to MTV News:" 'Mrs. International' is a state of mind. It's not around the way; it's around the world. You could be in a messed-up neighborhood or messed-up background - it doesn't mean you can't change for the better."
  • This track features the rapper and producer Erick Sermon, who was the "E" in the rap duo EPMD.
  • Blackout 2 was the rap duo's second album together. Their previous set Blackout came out in 1999.

That's what happened."
