AllHipHop: To shift gears and go back a while into the past, on the 2pac album, “All Eyez On Me”, I remember your verses on the song “I Got My Mind Made Up” were erased or something. Can you talk about that for a bit?
Deck: Rest in peace to 2pac man. We was out in Cali one day with Method Man and Redman and we had stopped by Daz Dillinger’s crib with him and Kurupt, and was kicking it with Lady of Rage. And that song had happened to come up, Daz threw a beat on, and Meth started coming with the chorus. So it just happened at the spur of the moment , like bam we gonna do it like that. And when I came on, I came on at the end of the track, and the track had gone off on me and I kept rhyming acapella, and we had kept that version for Daz’s album. But I guess 2pac came in when he had signed to Death Row he had bought the song off of Daz and he had cut a couple of verses off. I think me, Rage, and might have even cut off Daz’s verse on (he did). 2pac made that happen though, because he bought the song and they edited it up.
AllHipHop: Speaking of Pac and Tha Row, any plans to work with anyone in general from the West Coast?
Deck: I got a lot of love on the West Coast. I got a lot of heads that I could easily work with such as Xzibit, Ras Kass, and the whole Golden State Warrior crew, Jayo Felony I just ran into last week. Theres a lot of guys out there that been dying and willing to work with us. In the future you’ll see. Ya know this album is just me getting on my feet and opening the ears. So next album guarantee you’ll see more collaborations.
