Sneaky

Songfacts®:

  • "Sneaky" was a bonus track on the Target edition of Trigga. The song was produced by Trey Song's music director and tour drummer Antwan "Amadeus" Thompson along with The Breed. Amadeus recalled the story of the production to Billboard:

    "Around Valentine's Day, we had a show up in Connecticut at the Foxwoods and we were in rehearsal a few days before a huge snowstorm was to hit. He came up to me in rehearsal and he was like, 'Let's get in the studio tonight.' That's where we cut seven or eight songs in two days. 'Sneaky' was one of the songs that we created.

    "I remember playing the track and he was feeling it. We sampled the Jodeci joint 'What About Us' and he's like, 'Pull that up' and that's how that record came about."
