Jason Mraz told a Canadian newspaper details behind his collaboration for the single "Geek in the Pink" with hip-hop honcho Scott Storch ("a guy on more rappers' speed dials than a weed-selling jeweler operating out of an Escalade dealership").

According to Mraz, "We were at his studio with, like, 30 MCs in the room and everyone just throwing down, smoking huge joints. When you hear stories like, 'There's one guy whose job it is just to roll joints,' there was that guy.... I got to see some crazy shit you only hear about on Behind the Music. Plus, nobody shot me and I didn't get arrested."

Mraz says his experience was soured by all the MCs that insisted on a songwriting credit.

"What started as a happy weed-smoking session turned into a pretty gnarly thing, and I don't doubt that half the guys in that studio carry weapons; you can tell because of the cars they drive and the amount of gold, diamonds, and marijuana they carry."
