For those wondering how the Ying Yang Twins conceived their inventive
single "Wait (The Whisper Song)," member D-Roc recently explained the
origin of the song and the remix that has been heating up airwaves.
"In the club it is very unattractive to yell in [a woman’s] face, but when
you whisper in her ear it turns her on," D-Roc told AllHipHop.com.
Once he came up with the initial concept, the single was born after a label executive
advised the Atlanta rap duo to whisper the entire song, said D-Roc.
But as much as the single has gained popularity, the remix has garnered even more
attention, particularly due to the sassy rhymes of BET "106 and Park"
host Free, whose inclusion on the remix seemed evident, according to D-Roc.
"I told [the label] how hype she was about the song," the rapper said.
"Free did her thing. I wish we could do a video to it just so I could see
what Free would wear. I think everybody would want to."
And despite the unconventional antics the Twins typically exhibit in front of
the camera, D-Roc insisted that in reality he and his partner Kaine are just as
sane as the rest.
"I am a character. Will Smith plays, when he’s in a movie, a character. But
when you see him, he’s Will Smith," explained D-Roc. "Outside of Ying
Yang, this [is] my job. When you see me I’m a grown man. Like Cedric the Entertainer
said, ‘I’m a grown man, dawg.’"
The Ying Yang Twins’ latest album U.S.A. (United State of Atlanta ) recently
debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Charts, and a music video for
their second single "Badd" featuring Houston rapper Mike Jones was released
just this week.
