Producer and MC Scram Jones has a history of making gully beats, one of his most notable being “Broken Safety” from Raekwon’s “Only Built For Cuban Links 2.” In this interview he reveals that the beat was originally for his own project and featured verses from Sean Price, which he later released as “Broken Safety Pt 2.”
“I had emailed that beat to a bunch of MCs and months had gone by and Raekwon hits me and says ‘that beat you sent me I got Jada on it and Styleson it. He even said he was trying to get Nas on it but that didn’t happen, he wanted it for ‘Cuban Links 2.’ I was like damn, ‘I just did a joint with Sean Price that I love.’ Raekwon was like it’s all good, it’s hip-hop they can both co-exist. It don’t matter.’
