On "Ghostwriting"

I don’t think you’ve ever called yourself the best. Wayne says “Best rapper alive” in almost every verse. Jay-Z has said it. Why don’t you do it?

I once said, “Niggas is this and that. I’m just the best.” But Pun told me to say that. He was like, ‘You got to say that. Fuck that.’ It was on Fat Joe’s record, “John Blaze.” Me and Pun were in the studio having a ball and I’m writing my rhyme and Pun leans over and says, “Just say, ‘Niggas is this and that. I’m just the best.’ Just say that.” He was not letting me go without saying that.
