Fab sat down with the website Genius to discuss what the album meant to him at that time 15 years ago.
“This was my first album, something that I was really excited about. It’s all you think about. But after I saw what was going on in the world and in New York City, I put my baby on the back burner,” he said. “I woke up and got a phone call saying that all of our promo plans for the album were canceled and I didn’t know why. Jay Z dropped The Blueprint album the same day, so I was like, ‘Ahhh Jay Z sabotaged us.’ But it was the 9/11 tragedy.”
