Payso B being well known in the streets and the music industry was picked to be featured in the three hour documentary mini-series which aired on A&E and Lifetime.
“I kind of came up in the YG/DJ Mustard’s era and I really helped make that whole jerk movement sound, that’s what I was really a part of, so I’m going to give the people what they want. I’m one of the originators of that sound, so I’m gonna still hit them with that sound and I’m gonna still hit em with that real shit, but this that shit they want.”
