The BPA featuring David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal | 2008
“Toe Jam” was the debut single for Brighton Port Authority, which was a collaboration between David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal. Producer Norman Cooke, a.k.a. Fatboy Slim, said that while the ex-Talking Heads frontman and the London-based rapper were listed as co-writers on the tune, they never worked on it together. “[Byrne and I] finished it and Dizzee heard it,” he told Rolling Stone. “I bumped into him at a photo session and he went, ‘I wanna be on that record. It's gonna be a hit and I wanna be on it. Find me 16 bars and put me on it.’ So we kind of glued him onto it."
“Make My” was the first single on the Roots' Undun album, which was centered around the story of a fictitious man named Redford Stephens who died at the age of 25. “The very first song is this person at the end of his life at the moment he pretty much gets murdered,” Questlove explained. “So when we were listening to the song, I said, ‘Well, I don't get the feeling that his spirit is leaving his body. I want to know that he is really dying.’” Hip-hop artists Big K.R.I.T. and Dice Raw collaborated on this tune.
