I really need an mp3 of this minus all the DJ 5150 soundbites :
B.G & Juvenile - 187
Although this apparently first appeared on an advance version of Juve's 400 Degreez. it ended up featuring on DJ Skribble's 1999 Traffic Jams 2000 album before being given a new lease of life on that DJ 5150 Juvenile & The B.G mixtape from last year. Since I can't find a downloabable link to the Skribble album, and because I'm still too much of a lazy, doltish technophobe to work out how to rip the 12" of it (handily featuring the C-Bo & Spice 1 from the Skribble album on the flip) I don't have a DJ-less CDQ version of it, which is a crying shame as it's a classic-era Ca$h Money Records banger between their two finest rappers at that point with Mannie in stark Mantronix mode behind the boards, and I really wanna give late night car treatment to it or just bump on my Mp3 player as I'm ambling around in M&S trying to work out which aisle they've moved the fish to. Anybody got a hook up?
In the meantime, let's reminisce on that other great Mannie produced, Ca$h Money Records roster featuring song on a 1999 New York album :
Notorious B.I.G ft. Hot Boys & Big Tymers - Hope You N*ggas Sleep
This was song from Born Again which had NY purists coming out in hives at the time, but which we can now look back on as being the best official posthumous Biggie track because it ticks the three boxes every other posthumous track leave blank or draw a spasticated squiggle in :
1. It fucking bangs.
2. It feels like a proper Biggie song which he would've made or appeared on in 1999.
3. It doesn't feature an out-of-place other Bad Boy rapper, or Lil' Cease, or some passed-it west coast rapper like Ice Cube who completely ruined that otherwise great Nasheim Myrick produced track from Born Again with Black Rob and Beanie Sigel.
