Here is a quote from T pain. He explains how he wrote the remix to R. Kelly's "I'm A Flirt" in an airport public bathroom:i wonder if he was tapping his foot in the next stall as he was writing it???
"His people called me and they told me they e-mailed me something," he said. "And they asked if I could do a verse to it, it'd be great, but we need it back by 4 o'clock, the same day. Not only the same day, but it was already 3 o'clock. I was in the airport about to go to Atlanta from Tallahassee [Florida]. I actually had to write the verse on my computer. I went into the bathroom of the airport and used the microphone that's built into my Mac and recorded the song on that. Then sent that to them. That was just the verse, so I could get that to them [and finish the mastered version when I got to the studio in Atlanta]. They told me a lot of people tried to put verses on the song, but only me and T.I. could come through."
