First Nigga (DJ Premier Remix)

This deserves inclusion simply because it was the only thing from G’s ill-fated Rawkus album that really made some noise. It’s not like G ever needed to justify his status, but this is still one of the stronger songs from his post 2000 discography.1

Wanted Dead or Alive (Remix)

Since the original version was one of the only really under-whelming beats from G Rap’s second LP, it was only right that Large Professor, G and Dr. Butcher give this song a major overhaul. This is one of the better arguments for why we need more remixes that don’t simply involve getting a bunch of guests to rap over the same track.

Bad To the Bone (Remix)

“Bad To The Bone” was a standout from G’s second album, but the Large Pro remix flips the relentless pace of the first version for more a musical interpretation that lightens the mood without losing the hardcore edge of the brag fest.

On The Run (Al Capone Remix)

KGR’s narrative skills are showcased in their full glory as he details a mob rip-off in classic form. Tone and Poke were killing it at this stage on the beat tip, before they earned the nickname The Wackmasterz. Remember that cable show that had this beat as the theme? There was this kid that went to clubs and got dudes like Mic Geronimo and Method Man to kick freestyles on stairwells and whatnot.

It’s A Shame (Dr. Butcher’s Mix)

As the first single from the 4,5,6 project, this otherwise quality track was hampered by some awful singing on the hook. Not so at the hands of the good doctor, as he flips the sample from Fat Joe‘s skit on Diamond D‘s debut for an ideal platter G Rap‘s multi madness to let off on.

  1. 1. Although I doubt dude really gave a fuck considering they gave him a million dollar advance.[back]
