“The lead track off of Bad Hair Day. When I heard Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio, I thought that a song about the Amish lifestyle would be really funny because it’s diametrically opposed to gangsta life.
“I visualized a video in which I’d be on the mean streets of Lancaster, Pennsylvania doing my gangsta-Amish thing. For a second, we were going to actually shoot it in Lancaster, but it wasn’t in the budget, so we had to recreate an Amish town in California.
“At first, Coolio wasn’t so fond of it. He went on record saying that he had never given permission, but I was told by my record label that he had. That’s all water under the bridge now. Everything’s fine. I ran into him a couple of years ago and we hugged it out.”
