Definitely need a playlist of this

Si Mane Price said...

Co-mingle with the illest minds of mankind!

step one said...

Still never been fully sold on the One More Chance remix

Si Mane Price said...

Better than the original, and it inspired an Ashanti classic.

SE said...

e-40 & the clipse - quarterbackin' (dj quik remix)
i fucked wit da "no hoe" remix

Si Mane Price said...

That's a good call. I was tryna think of a Quik remix but came up blank.

icebergsweater said...

I always did like that remix of Behind Bars.

The remix of Super Sic Wid It was good too from what I remember.

Billy Rubin said...

Main Source "Just Hangin Out (Your Hood Remix)" and Del's "Catch a Bad One (Remix)" worth consideration?

sisilafami said...

my ugk pick is

Si Mane Price said...

Pocket Full Of Stones remix bodied the original, changed the whole sound of southern rap, and somehow managed to make a Red Hot Chilli Peppers interpolation sound fly.

It's a top ten remix of all time.

d said...

Luv this list. Kinda uncharacteristic for southern groups to be heavy w remixes, the Front Back Side to Side ones a classic too.

Some superior video versions w Trae's Swang, Straight Gangsterism n Ball n G Middle Of The Night Remix, i got a virus tryna dl this rys ago so it holds a special place in my heart:

Dungeon Fam had a good few too - the album version of Players Ball is technically one of its remixes, title track had like a Diamond D one that was good, Black Ice, Witchdoctor Holiday remix

A heap of the Three 6 underground shit got remixed n thats prob a diff list cos its sample clearance but the later version of Midnight Hoes>>>>>>>

d said...

I got Supposed to Bubble on the cheap n listened to the remix instrumental constantly, its prob still sat on a dusty deck in my mas rn. the jacket says "For PA N**gaz Worldwide!" :) cheers lads

d said...

Wanna go back n suggest Pudgee The Phat Bastard Think Big og for the sample clearance post aswell, has my fav Biggie verse on there

Si Mane Price said...

Probably get my dunn-card revoked for having the Quiet Storm remix with Kim over the After Hours mix of G.O.D Part III.

d said...

Various memphis lads have made that, Halloween n a couple other horror flick themes washed n tumble dried to me

hotbox said...

Wanted Dead Or Alive (Remix) - Kool G Rap
Back from Hell - Run DMC feat Chuck D & Ice Cube
Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous - Ice T (Premier's first non Gang Starr production?)
Lisa Baby (Pete Rock Remix) - Father MC
Letterman - K Solo (Pete Rock remix)

Si Mane Price said...

Yo Memphis lads, I'm really happy for you and Ima let you finish, but Ice-T's The Tower had the best Halloween flip of all time. Of all time!!

d said...

V True.

Was the Lord Finesse album not his first outside production? idk if the dates line up but i remember him or Finesse saying that.

d said...

some big internet bullshit is primos In The Trunk remix being better than the original, ditto for Def Wish

Si Mane Price said...

Both the Primo remix and his joints on Lord Finesse's album were 1990, so your guess is as good as mine to which dropped first.

Si Mane Price said...

Primo's remix of 1st Of The Month being better than the O.G is also some classic internet bullshit.

d said...

Yeh that one rly had that inter regional remix "not for its intended use" lack of chemistry

Si Mane Price said...

Primo's remix of M.O.P's Rugged Neva Smoov can suck a big fat dick too.

d said...

Ah yeh i think thats the 1st time the ol bork Primo reverence got shaken, might be the worst one n I had the version of Chocolate Starfish n Hot Dog Flavoured Water w the Primo remix on it

hotbox said...

ahh the Ice T track is from '91 so looks like I'm wrong the Finesse album dropped a year prior

Si Mane Price said...

Remix dropped in 1990 according to Discogs.
