"No Airplay" was edited on both the edited and explicit versions of the album. The explicit version only backmasks on the song, while the edited version even edits the intro.
"Hollis to Hollywood" is sampled from his verse of Craig Mack's "Flava In Ya Ear (Remix)" on the chorus.
Also To Be Noted, Certain Album Version Has The Explicit Version Of "No Airplay" Which The Intro Is Edited Out And its Starts With LL Talking And The Verse Or Edited Neither Blackmask
