Biggie and Sean came to my house one day and ["Juicy"] was playing on my drum machine," revealed Pete Rock. "Biggie thought I was making it for C.L. [Smooth]. When I told him I was just making it for myself, he immediately wanted it. I said sure, but didn't think much of it. Then, next thing I know, I heard it playing somewhere. I'm over it now though."
To make matters worse, the "Juicy" beat on Ready To Die gives the production credits to Trackmasters and Diddy with no mention of Pete Rock. Wow. Want to hear the original Pete Rock beat that really does sound as though CL Smooth would have done major damage on it? Press play below.
