I was busy with touring and radio all over the country. I wasn’t in Jersey a lot because of my schedule, I didn’t know my record was influencing the Jersey Club sound the way it did. I was saying to my label the remix is popping in Jersey and Lil Man is really behind this record. I don’t think they understood at the time but I knew Jersey Club wasn’t going nowhere”.
