She was sitting there with Wiz [Khalifa]. She just kept looking at me laughing, I kept on looking at her laughing. I said, ‘What you laughing at?’ She said, “I know you high like me.'” According to Montana, that was all it took. “After that, we became mad cool. I went over to the studio, just kicking it.”
