And the voice that recurs throughout the song saying "Young L" but sounding like "You're new" (the phase that has become the Pack's trademark) is a vocal he cranked out on the FruityLoops program.
For the upcoming album, however, he wants to "incorporate more real instrumentation," and at press time, he was meeting with Lil Jon, who will reportedly coproduce it.
Young L, who grew up soaking up the sounds of "Too $hort, 2Pac, the Cash Money crew, as well as Jay Z and Rock-a-fella," doesn't think the Pack should be stuck to any one sound, as is threatening to happen. "We have hyphy songs," he said from Berkeley. "But I don't think we are a hyphy group, because hyphy is based on high-energy, hyperactive lyrics and beats, and our sound is more varied than that." One example is the Miami bassstyled track "Candy" on Skateboards 2 Scrapers, which at times echoes 2 Live Crew's "Get It Girl" and other Luke tunes. "We've always been into Miami bass, especially Lil B, who has always been into Uncle Luke," Young L added. "We just love good music!" *
