He shared his thoughts about signing A$AP Rocky’s diaper when the Harlem rapper was a child, rumors sparked by MC Serch about having tracks ghostwritten from him, other rumors about writing The Fresh Prince & DJ Jazzy Jeff’s classic “Summertime” and why he felt he was biting his style, what inspired his Dapper Dan jackets, if he had regrets signing with Dr. Dre, making up with Eric B, and he also broke down his process writing “Juice (Know the Ledge).”

His book ‘Sweat the Technique: Revelations on Creativity from the Lyrical Genius’ is available now.
