SG: You just shot the new video for ďBe StillĒ with Janelle Monae. Janelle is obviously signed to your label as well, on the album. How did the two of your first connect?

BB: Janelle was singing background for an artist I had signed named Scar, and she used to be around, stank on the edges, a cute little school girl, and I caught her at open mic night at Justinís Ė P. Diddyís soul food restaurant in Atlanta Ė and I heard her singing and I told her I had to have her. I brought her in and just really vibed with her for some years, until it was time for her to come out. Sheís one of those artists that you donít have to lead the way on; you donít have to hold their hand, theyíve always got input. I like artists with vision. Sheís definitely one of those, and sheís gonna be here for a long time.
