“When I was a teenager, [ peer-to-peer shar­ing net­work] LimeWire was re­ally pop­u­lar. We only had one com­puter in my house, so my cousin Ma­lik – who lived with us at the time – was down­load­ing all his mu­sic. He was get­ting a lot of N.E.R.D. stuff and the first song I heard was Am I High. At first I didn’t un­der­stand it, their style was so unique and I was con­fused by the rap­ping and singing – I guess that’s what hooked me in. Lap­dance was a big song for me on that al­bum, they sounded like badasses. Phar­rell Williams and Chad Hugo on that al­bum are un­matched.”
