This beat originally is on my first solo project, "The Great Big Nothing", which was initially released Nov 2006. It plays immediately after a song named "Motor City Madness". It served as a nice bookend between MCM and the following track. When I re-released the album, the track wasn't included on my album and neither was this beat. Even still, I knew that one day I was going to record off the track. During the final stages of the album, a young lady I knew named Jenny Davis passed away from renal failure (kidneys). My Mother described visiting Jenny in the hospital, which gave me the inspiration for the song. She said Jenny had tubes in her mouth, nose... seemingly everywhere and was verbally non-responsive. However, when my Mother began talking to her, one of the machines started beeping rapidly and the nurses had to remove my her from the room. I guess the presence of my Mom kinda overwhelmed Jenny... and since she couldn't actually talk, it was too much for her. Sad. I'd known Jenny since I was a kid. Never saw her without a smile or a kind word. She used to always tell these corny jokes that would kinda piss me off... and of course, she said them every time to piss me off on purpose. I wish I could hear one of the jokes right now. Jenny was indeed a sweetheart. Rest in power....
