Did you know? Danja Mowf on "Dangerous Mouths"

As much as I enjoy hearing a new Timbaland song, there's nothing like hearing an alternate version of one of his tracks. I like the original ideas that got cut; the could haves and would haves. Take for example the 2 completly different versions of "We At It Again" or the alternate to "Get Contact" or my favorite, the version of "I" where Timbo raps twice. To add another one to the list, I stumbled on an 2001 interview with a Danja Mowf, a member of the Supafriendz who later christened his own crew with the same name. He had some interesting things to say about his time on Missy Elliott's Gold Mind (who knew?) and his original spot on Missy's "Dangerous Mouths":

Vigilante: A lot of people don't know you used to be on Missy Elliott's Gold Mine Label. What happened with that? Any blad blood between you and Miss Misdemeanor? Tell us about the "Dangerous Mouths" incident.

Danja Mowf: No bad blood. She signed me after the Aaliyah Remix joint, and I thought it would be cool because Skillz was with Tim. They never brought us into the camp. I wanted her to work with me, and I was left to do records and submit them to her. If I was able to do some real bangers, like I'm doing now, things may have been different. I doubt it, because she has a pattern of having artists who come out and fade away or never come out. Nicole Wray, Mocha, TC, this other little kid I heard about... and me.

Dangerous Mouths was just politics. Redman didn't want to be on this other record, so they asked him to do that record with us, but his management didn't want him to be on the record with her new artist. They said in order for him to do the record it had to be just him and her. She said she would put me on something else, but that never happened. I fault her for being star struck enough not to realize it was more important to promote her artist, and I fault me for not having a verse that would make Missy tell Red he was crazy if he thinks she is going to take my hot ass verse off that record!! It was wack that she kept the name, but that's life."

The track has your own name and you still get cut, that's rough but don't count the MC out, he's still doing his thing and you can check new music from him via his myspace page.
