Terror SquadTrue Story (2004)

I wouldn’t look at “Lean Back” as being a dance craze. At the time the Jamaican dances were popping…the whole ‘signal the plane’ stuff. So I said, “You know what? We have to do some shit where people could blend in with the Jamaican dances.” I came up with the rock-a-way and then I said lean back. I knew that the most successful songs were simple; simple enough for a little kid could to understand. But what’s crazy is “Lean Back” was originally my solo record that was going to go on a future album. But when Remy Ma heard it she was like, “Yo, I’m getting on this song!” So I gave her a chance and she killed it. Lyrically, Remy has always been the best female MC during the short run that she had. But the Terror Squad is still here. DJ Khaled, Cool & Dre, Fat Joe…we still rep TS.
