Yeah, someone drop the story behind that Hustlin' beat.
As the story goes, Craig Kallman of Atlantic Records first gave the beat to Bump to use on his highly anticipated debut, Nothing To Lose.*After Bump recorded and laid his version of “Hustlin”, the track somehow managed to land in the hands of Ted Lucas with Slip-N-Slide Records, who at the time still had a situation through Trick Daddy at Atlantic. *Ted gave the beat to Rick Ross who then laid his version and took the world by storm.* The rest, as they say, is history.
