Last week Meka from 2DopeBoyz, our very own Lowkey of YouHeardThatNew and Mikey Fresh of MissInfo.tv played a few throwback joints for Styles and asked him some questions. Topics covered include working with DJ Premier on “Recognize”, the LOX mixtape classic “Who Did You Expect”, how he ended up with a beat from Havoc during the D-Block/G-Unit conflict, the importance of an atmosphere of competition amongst MCs and much more. He also speaks on his absence from “It’s All About the Benjamins” and reveals that the story Sheek Louch told about Missy cutting his verse wasn’t actually true.

Listen below and be sure to pre-order SP’s Phantom And The Ghost LP, out next Tuesday on the New Music Cartel Music Group/EMPIRE.
