Robert - Thanks for taking time for this.
Binky Mac - Oh yea man no problem. It's all good dawg.
Robert - So we can get a feel for where you're from and what kind of place Inglewood is; how would you best describe Inglewood to someone who has never been there?
Binky Mac - Inglewood is a good place. Inglewood is the type of place that is gang affiliated but then you got the city council, the mayor, and all them. They live there. Ya know what I mean.

I remember one day Mack asking me for a track. And I got this thing, even when I was coming up and I was charging ten thousand a track, if somebody would ask me for a track I would never turn them down - I'd give it to them. Cause you never know where that individual will end up at ya know what I mean? Mainly not for that reason but out of love too ya know, so I ended up giving Mack a track. He never actually recorded that track back then cause he was trying to do some solo stuff, so when he actually ended up hooking up with DJ Pooh, and then Pooh introducing him to Cube, and Cube brought him out, he ended up coming back and grabbing us.
