Star Rock Ent founder Lee Sanchez speaks about appearing on the intro to the Clipse’s second LP Hell Hath No Fury on the 10-year anniversary.
On Monday (Nov. 28th), The Clipse’s second studio album Hell Hath No Fury turned 10. In honor of the milestone, I wanted to dig deeper into the story behind the first voice we hear on the album. After Mogul Tree’s Tone made the connection, I linked up with Lee Sanchez, a.k.a Mr. Lee, at his condo in Downtown Miami and he gave me the full run down of how he got on “Got It For Cheap.” We got talked about how he met Pusha T and No Malice and how Pharrell encouraged him to jump on the record.
“They introduced me to Pharrell,” Lee said in my interview for VIBE. “Right away we had the chemistry with him. Just by me being in the studio I guess my accent, you know what I mean, the way I speak, just the way I am. Then Pharrell called and said, ‘We need Lee in the studio to get on and do it. Let him talk his talk. Let him do his thing.’”
Rich Blanco, who films every moment of N.O.R.E & DJ EFN’s “Drink Champs” podcast, sat in during the interview and did what he does best. He caught Lee showing me his work in Pusha T’s Watch a quick behind-the-scenes visual of my interview with Mr. Lee below and read his side of the story of how he hopped on one the most revered album intros in hip-hop history.
