January 29, 2020

– Lyor was like, what about Case? He was like, yeah but
Case can’t really sing. I had just done “Happily Ever After” but it wasn’t out yet. So he played it for him. And after he was like, you

I played a lot of basketball,
baseball, football. Growing up in my household
was extremely strict. My parents were Jehovah’s Witnesses. We didn’t have Christmas,
we didn’t have birthdays, we didn’t have no holidays. So it was real strict. The only time I got to be a
kid was when I went to school. So instead of doing what I was supposed to do in school I was having fun. Doing everything I wanted to do. I was always on punishment for something. I spent more time in my room than anybody that I could
ever think of probably. From what I’m told, I started
singing before I could talk. I could never really think of
wanting to do anything else. You know how some kids
are like, I wanna be a doctor, I wanna be, and I wanted to say I wanted to be Michael Jackson. There was always music in the house. Because my dad was a singer, so. There was always, he had a stereo and he would plug it in. We’d listen to Stevie
Wonder and the Jackson Five and the Temptations, and
just all kind of music. Then my grandmother, she would always, she would make us do concerts for company when we were little. Me and all my cousins. So I had this one cousin, Teddy, we used to always battle over which one was gonna be Michael Jackson. So we used to go at each other. And you’d be singing as hard as you could thinking that you’re doing something and then she’d just get
up and walk out the room. So you’re like, what? She’s like, yeah let me
know when you mean that. And just leave. So now you’re like, oh I’m singing my mother fucking heart out. So you’d go running in. Now you gotta try harder. And then when you get
it right she’d be like, now you singing. So, she kind of put that in all of us. And then my dad was a singer when I was, I think before I was born. He used to sing with Cameo when
they were called East Coast. My mom, she always said that she saw the stuff that they had going on. She was like, I didn’t want
you growing up like that. So she would always discourage me from the music business for that reason. We moved from Brooklyn to
Mount Vernon in New York when I was about 17,
16, something like that. When I moved to Mount Vernon I came out of school and Heavy D’s
standing right there. I go in the corner store,
Al B. Sure! was in there. And so now and that’s
when the new jack swing and all that stuff started. So now I’m seeing people closer to my age and now it seems real. And I’m talking to people
who are actually doing it. So now it seems real to me. And so Al would have me in the studio and be teaching me stuff
about writing songs. There was this one time he was writing a song for his second album. He hands me the paper
he was like, go sing it. I’m like, it’s just
words, there’s no song. He’s like, yeah. I’m gonna put the music on. Just go in there and
sing whatever comes out. So that was my first time
ever being in a studio, a real studio. Well my pops, anyway, he was old school. So his thing was when you
turn 18 you’re getting out. So you know, I was like, hold my beer. I left when I was like 16, 17. Life was rough. I mean, ’cause I’m out on my own. I had to get a job. I was renting a room in the Bronx. I was working temp jobs
and stuff like that. So I mean, it was hard. It was like a reality check. Eventually I got into selling drugs and we would rob people,
rob a store here or there stuff like that. I think all of that shaped me as a person because being that young
you have to be independent and it teaches you to go
and take care of yourself. To go after it. I would hear songs on the radio. I’d fantasize about it being me or videos and stuff like that. So that, I was consumed by that. So there was no way I was gonna stay and just not do music. I was in a group, actually. It was me and my homeboy Brian. We were called Black, we was a duo. We had been working up music
for about, maybe two years. And we was trying to get a record deal. We had a few meetings. We were doing demos. Our management company had us and a group called La Day. And one of the members of La Day had left. La Day already had a record deal. They were about to
shoot their first video. It was like, why don’t you and Brian, y’all could join La Day. They already had the deal, this and that, y’all are still looking for a deal. And I was like, nah I didn’t wanna do it. And he was like, yo would
you feel a certain way if I wanted to? And I’m like, nah go ahead. And so he went and he took the deal. And you know, they did what they did. And I’m like, dang they
doing videos, they on tour. I was all right, I’m gonna figure it out. After that, I mean it was years of trying to do demos and trying to take meetings, and this person saying
they’re gonna sign me then they don’t. I had a friend of mine, Misa, Misa Hylton. Girl I went to high school with. And so Misa was shopping my demo around. She was playing it for different people. And she actually got Faith Evans to write a song for me on it
called, “Don’t be Afraid.” So I recorded that song. Misa and Kenny Smoov they
got the song to Def Jam to Lyor and Russell. And Russell heard it, he loved it. And he signed me to Def Jam. ♪ You’re the only one for me ♪ ♪ You’re the only one I need ♪ ♪ Can’t nobody make me feel ♪ ♪ The way you’re making me feel♪ “Touch Me, Tease Me” came about, we were in the studio looking for songs that we wanted to sample
to make for the album. And we were trying to get the PSK sample but there was something
about it wouldn’t go right. It wouldn’t come out right. And so we were playing with
it for maybe six, seven hours. It wouldn’t come out right. And somebody hit something
on the drum machine and it went right by accident. It was like, okay, just keep it like that. And then we had this song
and Mary, who’s best friends with Misa at the time, she gave it to her. She was like, she said
she wanted to write it. So we all in the studio
and we’re sitting around and we’re figuring out what it is. And we finished writing the song. Then I went in to sing it. Once it was done we were
like, yo you know what? We need a rap on it. And then it dawn on, I forgot who it was, but they was like, you know
Foxy is right on Def Jam. Right there it was a no brainer. ♪ Well Foxy Brown met
Case, now we laced, ♪ ♪ Bonnie met Clyde now
now I’m up in Jamaica ♪ ♪ Breaking all your paper♪ So as far as my career that
was the start right there. Like it was, that’s the beginning. That was the first single. That was the first video that I did. ♪ Don’t let go ♪ ♪ Oh no ♪ ♪ Baby I’m about to explode ♪ ♪ I’m gonna ♪ ♪ Cause all my love you can control ♪ ♪ Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah♪ My debut album, my creative approach. Honestly, I didn’t have very much control over that album which is
why to this day I hate it. Yeah, I hate that album. It was more so because
remember I was signed to a production label who
was signed to Def Jam. And so everybody had their ideas but I didn’t really have a
lot of say so over my ideas. At that time people would be like, well, oh yeah he sounds like Joey C. And I didn’t wanna sound like that. But I really didn’t have a choice. Like, that’s what voice I have. And I had that going on internally and then I had the other things where this is what everybody
thought I should make and you need to make this, you need to make a song like this. And I had all of that stuff
jumping up in the mix. (light music) Yeah, I met Mary through Misa when we were working on the album. She would come to the studio
and hang out or whatever. I mean, we just started hanging out. And she was there when I
was working on my album. She did, like she wrote I think three or four songs that she wrote. Or that we wrote together, it was four. And so you know how that goes. You’re doing music. You know, it just turns into, hey. I don’t think she planned it. I was scheming all along, but. And then you know, we had an affair. She wasn’t supposed to
be in the video, either. That was another thing that happened, the “Touch Me, Tease Me” video. Her label said she cannot be in the video. So she came because we were just, she came with me. And we was chilling and she was like, I’m being in the video. And then after that they had a fit. They was like, okay, if she’s on any of them other records we’re suing. But they waited ’til the day before, maybe the week before the
album was supposed to come out. So we had to go back
and change everything. Have somebody sing over all the parts that she sang on the records. But yeah, they was
pissed about that video. The way things ended with Mary, they pretty much just ended. I was on tour and Mary’s
cousin was my hype man. So my Hennessy drunken,
genius mind thought that I wait ’til he goes to his room that he won’t see that I
brought three girls in my room. And then, you know I was sloppy. They’d be around and I’m like, nah, we can just tell him
they’re just my friends or I know them, so. That was bound to get back to her, so. That’s pretty much what happened there. ♪ Guess what I did today ♪ ♪ Those were the words I said to you♪ On the second time around when I made “Personal Conversation” I was more coming into my own. I wasn’t signed to the
production label anymore. I was directly to Def Jam which cut out a lot of the interference
that I had creatively. I picked pretty much who
I wanted to work with. What songs I wanted to do. They weren’t really too much into R and B so there wasn’t too much
that they was gonna tell me. And so I got to kind of get my feet wet as far as what I wanted to do and as far as finding myself as an artist. ♪ I will be your man ♪ ♪ You’re protector, your best friend ♪ ♪ Tell my humble♪ “Happily Ever After” came from
a guy name Chris Henderson. He was a producer in Virginia. It was a duet and it
was, it didn’t sound like it sounds now, but it was
a duet was the basic idea. And I’m like, I like it but I think we should do it different. So we went in and knocked
it out, everybody liked it. As far as getting Beyonce in the video for “Happily Ever After” we were trying to figure out who was gonna be the love interest in the video. And at that time it seemed like all of the quote unquote video girls were in every video,
you’d see the same girl. So I’m like, I want somebody different. So he was like, okay. So I’m sitting in the office at Def Jam and the video with Wyclef came on. And no, no, no, no. I’m like, yeah go get her. So, it’s like who is that? I’m like, don’t worry about who that is. Just go get her. So they called her dad and told him about the song and he was like,
she wanted to hear the song. So we sent her the song. And she said she loved
it, she would do it. It was that simple. ♪ Oh yeah ♪ ♪ Couldn’t we be happily ever after ♪ ♪ Come on♪ In the trailer we would talk about stuff that she wanted to do,
stuff that I wanted to do. Which is funny to me now
because I remember her at the time, I was on, I
forgot what tour it was. But she was like, man I
wish we could go on tour. Or I wish we could this and that. And sitting there now, it’s hilarious to think about the conversation. ♪ More than a woman and
goddess for all it seems ♪ ♪ And all I ever needed♪ Me and Joe recorded “Faded Pictures” twice because the first time they said we sounded like we was
fucked up, which we was. At that time I had this
chip on my shoulder because most people knew me
from “Touch Me, Tease Me” and so they were like,
yeah I like that song but he can’t sing. Because I mean, anybody can
sing “Touch Me, Tease Me.” So, that was the chip on my shoulder going into the second album. That, oh people think I can’t sing. And so Keydal was like, so
Lyor was like what about Case? He was like, yeah but
Case can’t really sing. So Lyor he calls Cathy Dossey. Cathy, bring me that Case record. So he brings, I had just
done “Happily Ever After” but it wasn’t out yet. So he played it for him and after he was like, you still think the
mother fucker can’t sing? And he was like, nah. He was like, yeah, we’ll do it with him. And we went in like maybe two weeks later. And we did the song. ♪ Oo ♪ ♪ Tattered picture book ♪ ♪ Was a photograph she took years ago♪ Yeah, the first time
we did it when they got it back they said we sounded drunk. Which made sense because we was drunk. We was having dice game in the, like we had a bunch of
strippers in this room. We had a dice game going. And actually, I’m not
really allowed to gamble because I don’t know when to stop. So we going and next thing you know he beat me for like 1,000 dollars then it was 5,000, then
it was like 10,000. Sit down, I’m like okay. I’m taking my chain my watch. And then they had to stop the game. It’s like no, next it’ll
be car keys and then. So they stopped the game. But he got like 10, 12,000
off me in the dice game. But then when they heard the song, because we thought it was dope. And we got back to thing
it was like, yeah nah, they need to go sing this again. So we went maybe the next couple days we went down the Hip
Factory and sang it again. But this time there was no
dice, no women, no nothing. We was just doing what we had to do. I didn’t get my money back, either. ♪ I’m standing here alone ♪ ♪ Well ♪ ♪ Trying to face another day ♪ ♪ Every time♪ On the session for “The Best Man I Can Be” that was actually fun. ♪ What can a brother do for me ♪ ♪ He can help you up when you are down♪ They called and they
said, they have a song that Jimmy Jam and Terry
Lewis want you to do. I knew nothing about it. They was like, you just
gotta fly to Minneapolis on this day. Like it didn’t matter what it was because it was Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. So, what’s funny is they
had a platinum party planned for me, it had
been planned for months. And it was on that day. I missed it. So I jump on the plane, I get there. When I get to the studio
there’s, R.L. was there, Ginuwine was there, Tyrese
hadn’t gotten there yet and then he got there
a little while later. So they’re playing the song and they’re telling us, you know, its supposed to be an
anthem for black men, like for brothers. So, we was like, all right cool. So they finally played the song for us and then we all loved it. ♪ What can a brother do for me ♪ ♪ He can help you up when you are down ♪ ♪ When you are down♪ We did that in, I think we
did that all in one night. The good thing about it,
everybody was like trying to out sing each other and all that. But we had one of the producers, two of the best producers around that could kind of reign it
in and make it make sense. But yeah, it was fun because
we did it all in the same room. The way that people used to do. But I don’t think it was, oh yeah one person did
act kinda like a bitch but that’s, but no names. It was just a guy. You know, just a guy. – So your third album “Open Letter” comes out April 24th, right? – Yeah, April 24th, open letter. – So you got any promotional
tours lined up for it or what? – Yeah, I’m going on tour. We start April 17th. Me, K-Ci and JoJo, Dave
Hollister, and Jon B. – [Host] Whoa. – Yeah, “Open Letter” was the third album. That’s actually my favorite album. Because I had complete, complete control. (light music) “Missing You” was a song
that we did with Tim and Bob. I think Tim and Bob did
like half of the album and myself and Redhead Kingpin
did the rest of the album. When it got to “Missing You”
I didn’t really like it. I was working with Tim and Bob. We did like maybe 10 songs. And I was in LA all week
and I had laryngitis. So I got there on a Monday because they was like, well just sing it and see how it comes out. So I get there on a Monday
and I sang “Living it Up” for Ja Rule. Tuesday comes, I can’t sing. Wednesday comes, I can’t sing. Thursday, I can’t sing. Finally they’re like, Friday comes, if you don’t do it today
then we can’t do the song. So I’m like, okay. I go to the studio and I’m like, I’m drinking all kind of stuff all day trying to get my voice back but
I really couldn’t even talk. So I get in the studio and I’m like, I’m gonna try and see what I can do. They run it from the top once. I sing it. It was like, okay start
over and try it again. I sing it the second time through. And it was over after that. Like, I couldn’t. And on the record when I’m like, I can’t sing no more. ♪ I can’t sing no more♪ I was, the lights went out in there. And I’m like, I can’t sing no more. Meaning, my voice is about to go. And I did it the second time. ♪ I can’t sing no more♪ And that’s when there’s nothing else after that in the song because I came out and I’m, because they’re
all in the dark like this and went and tapped and
I’m like, I can’t talk. I can’t do nothing. So that was the record. And it ended up being, that
was my first Grammy nomination. That was the first number
one single that I had. It was the biggest record I had. It was number three on the pop charts. So, I mean it ended up pretty good. ♪ Your friend wants to get with me ♪ ♪ She hawking me down
like you wouldn’t believe♪ The next single was “Not Your Friend.” That record was running, it
was running up the charts. I was like, okay finally we got it where it’s supposed to go. Well, they had another record that they were pushing at the same time as “Not Your Friend.” Now, I happen to know for a fact that the record that they were pushing it was kind of trash. The radio didn’t wanna play that record but they liked my record. So they’re playing mine. Well, Def Jam told them,
because they had spent so much money on this other record they was like, look, drop everything else and go get that record. Because we spent so much money on it. By the time they came back to get “Not Your Friend” it’s too late. You know what I mean,
because it lost momentum. So we had this big meeting in Miami and they said, we apologize, we fucked up. I’ll make it up to you. We’re gonna put out
“Conversate” as the next single. And we’ll keep going from there. So I’m like, okay cool. I was cool with that. About a month later they swore that conversation never happened. I’m like, are you shitting me? It was 10 people in the room. Nah, that’s not what I said. All right, cool. Fuck you and fuck your momma. I was pissed. I don’t even wanna deal with them anymore because clearly you said that and what would happen is that every time a situation would come up it would be, well nah, we don’t wanna do that. And then a month later, yeah
we shoulda did what you said. There’s only so many times
you can have that conversation before it gets to like, what are we doing? So I’m working on my next album which is “The Rose Experience.” So I recorded the whole album. I had the first single was supposed to be “Deja Vu.” The video got sabotaged somehow. They were dragging their
feet putting out the album. So I’m like, what’s the problem. So, nobody could give me an answer. So, I was like, you know
what just forget it. So I went home and I just
stopped doing anything. I stopped taking their cars. Then I told my manager at the time that I wanted out of Def Jam. I realized that I wasn’t
walking around singing no more. Like I just, I didn’t care. And so I’m like, I’m not gonna
do it if I don’t feel it. Because that’s when you start
putting out crappy music. I was in a strip club every night. I was hanging out, just chillin. I was just living. I had fallen out of love with music and two things happened in 2009. First my grandmother passed in May of 2009 and then a month later
Michael Jackson died. If you remember those were the two things that really had me from a little kid. Like, I wanna do music, I
want to be Michael Jackson, I want to impress my
grandmother as a singer. And so you start to go back and reminisce over that stuff. And I was starting to go back and listening to all of the old music that my grandmother used
to have me listening to. And then a month later
Michael Jackson dies so I’m listening to all the
old Michael Jackson music. And it sparked it back up. ♪ Something on my mind ♪ ♪ I need to get it through to you ♪ ♪ Understand I’m so infatuated by you♪ I wound up going back on
tour again after that. Actually right after that I put out “The Rose Experience” album. And the first single was
“Lovely” on that album and then I’ve been touring
and making music ever since. If I could go back I probably wouldn’t have asked for a release from Def Jam because everybody at
Def Jam went to Atlantic and that’s what I would have done. ♪ Something special ♪ ♪ Got me shook up with the things you do ♪ ♪ When we make love we make love ♪ ♪ Baby when we make love ♪ ♪ When hug and we kiss and we touch♪ Since I left Def Jam I put
out three albums, I think. And still touring. I’ll be 50 years old in a couple years. And I mean I’m still
doing what I love to do. And I’m just a lot happier
and a lot more stable than I was 15 years ago, definitely. ♪ You’re the only one for me ♪ ♪ You’re the only one I need ♪ ♪ Can’t nobody make me feel ♪ ♪ The way you’re making me feel ♪ ♪ And girl you know this love is real ♪ ♪ Oh you, oh♪ My last album, “Therapy”
I released independently. I also have a show that I put together called the Marvin Gaye Experience. What I’m doing is basically
introducing people to a lot of Marvin Gaye
music that they may not know and some of the stories behind it. And also showing how it
ties into what I’m doing. My legacy, I want to be someone that made real music,
music from the heart. And it wasn’t trendy, it
didn’t follow whatever fads were going on. I’ve always wanted to make
music that people would want to listen to in 20 years, 30 years. And I mean, so far so good. I mean “Touch Me, Tease
Me” is what, 23 years old? People still listen to it. That’s what I want. I want music that’ll last,
that’ll last forever. I don’t wanna have something
that’s hot right now and then you’ll be like,
oh how did we like that? You know, I want to make classic music. So, I’m just living life. Just doing all the stuff
that I left home to do. (funky music)

    I still listen to Case. Music back then spoke to my soul! When I'm really happy, sad, hurt, whatever there was music that spoke to me.

    I have a strong feeling he's referring to, Tyrese, as the 'female dog' on that group song.

  • Reply Jasmine V. Rowe January 28, 2020 at 8:14 pm

    It’s sad that we won’t have a crew of black male singers that’s popular that can come together like case, RL, Tyrese, and Ginuwine and give us a meaningful song with powerful, unique, individual vocals 😔
