Dawn Reinholtz, unit manager and camera operator: It was definitely different. Usually we’ll set up in a garage or something, because you have all the audio equipment as well. I think we set up in the kitchen, though, because I don’t believe he had a garage. And you couldn’t even ring the doorbell.
Diaz: It was clearly cold, too, because I remember how hard it was to rub the wires together to get the doorbell to ring.
Redman: They show up fucking early. I wanted to at least clean up a bit, since I ain’t have any real furniture in there and shit, and I thought I had a little bit of time and I didn’t. When they knocked on the door I was still sleepy-eyed and they were like, “You know what, this is good, let’s just roll with it. You just get back into bed and we’ll make it like we just disturbed you,” and we played it right on out from there. Not too much setup, not too much dialogue to go over. We just winged it.
Reinholtz: It was rather early in the morning, so for him it was waking up.
Mr. Cream, Redman’s cousin, formerly known as Sugar Bear: I remember going to the studio the night before, and I fell asleep and shit... I don’t know if someone gave him the word or not, but he’s not that type of person anyway who would redecorate [for MTV] -- he’s just like, "I am what I am." He’s always been like that.
Clarke: They did not clean this place; they did not care.
Redman: It was still in the process of being rehabbed.
