Tricky explained on his record label's website that the reggae vocalist on this track is "my boy Rodigan from New York… one of the guys I hung out with in The Bronx. Seven years we've been friends, and he inspires me."
'Baligaga' is a word that Tricky made up. It doesn't really mean anything.
Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" is a mashup of "Werewolves Of London" and "Sweet Home Alabama." The album it came from was released in October, 2007, but they held off until summer, 2008 for a more seasonable release.
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
