"The record that my DJ L.E.S. was supposed to bring [to a recording session] was the 'Juicy Fruit' record by Mtume, and he winded up bringing 'Yearning For Your Love' by the Gap Band somehow, and we just used that record," he recalled. "It's one of the last records on the the album [Gap Band III], and that winded up being 'Life's a B[itch]' with AZ. We wanted to use 'Juicy,' and I love 'Life's a B[itch],' but when [the Notorious B.I.G.'s] 'Juicy' came out, it took me a while to get over that…this wasn't the days of now where you can go online and just download the song; [L.E.S.] drove from Queens to Manhattan, and we wanted to get the song done, so we didn't want to wait for [him to retrieve it] and the record stores were closed, so today is a different day. Back then, we had to do what we had to do." - Nas Recalls Wanting To Sample Song From Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy"
