Erick Sermon: "I wanted to rhyme on what I thought was the best part. Parrish and my DJ K La Boss was like "That aint the one E." There wasnt a scratch to let me know when to come in, it still sounds off to me.

"Thats a story that people will never know. I didnt feel right rhyming there. We did that with one microphone. For the whole album we had one microphone. We would be in the booth the same time. I would lean over then Parrish would lean over. Thats how we made that whole album."


"You Gots to Chill" is the second single by EPMD from their 1988 debut album Strictly Business. The song prominently features a sample from More Bounce to the Ounce by Zapp and "Jungle Boogie" by Kool & the Gang.
