  • This lyrical back-and-forth is a bi-coastal collaboration with Wu-Tang Clan member Raekwon. The feature wasn't planned. Talking at the listening party for Oxymoron, Q said, "I just needed somebody from [Wu-Tang] on the album... [Raekwon and I] ran into each other in the elevator."

    "Nothing music related," he added. "I wasn't going to do music. He wasn't going to do music. He just walks on the elevator I was on."
