anyone know what the title of the song "7 pounds" is in reference to or what it means? i've always tried to decipher it from listening to the lyrics, but i'm coming up empty. i remember in the "pro tools" promo video that was on YouTube, dreddy mentioned some of the song titles. right after he mentioned "7 pounds" he said something like "... thats a digital, pro tools term right there... for all my producer cats... that know what that means...". the song was originally gonna be titled "7.4".
(anyone know what the "7.4" means?)
here's the link to the dreddy / pro tools vid:
(yeah, i've been listening to pro tools a lot lately.... trying to gain a significant appreciation for it. PT is the only gza solo that i'm not crazy about. after "legend" i was 100% sure that gza was never gonna drop a "disappointing" album. and i'm wrong, so far..... but i REALLY wanna change that, in regards to pro tools. i feel like there's something i'm missing, and if i could figure it out, then i'd have this new perspective on pro tools, and it would finally measure up.)
thanks in advance.
