Round & Round
Shock G has a long myspace blog where he details (and I mean details) the creation of “I Get Around.” In it he reveals an unreleased extended mix with “music drop-outs, long drums-only sections, delays & echoes on sound bites, different vocal effects, etc.” and even admits that Pac wrote his rhymes:
The “satin on your panties” line was another cool sounding line but I really didn’t know what it meant when I was saying it, I just spit it confidently anyway, which is the rule when riming. Later, I imagined he meant that, before a girl was a fan of d.u., before she heard Sex Packets and Freaks of the Industry, and/or before she had sex with me personally, she wasn’t conscious of the fabric of her undergarments, or the sexiness-value of them, but ever since the “aftershock” she now wears satin panties regularly. (ha ha, Pac you a fool for that one!!) So as it turns out, the most popular punch-line of my career was penned by Tupac.
This is excerpted from Shock’s forthcoming Pac book “Producing A Young Genius,” which looks like it could use a good editor/ghost writer. (Shock… holler!)
