Released in 1997 this late 90′s track still brings back good vibes. Sure, we were still grieving the loss of Pac and Big but life wasn’t as fast paced and cell phones hadn’t yet ruined a ride on the train or walk down the block for that matter. Take a trip back below.
I still remember the day I went to scoop my copy of Ready To Die. Lets rewind. I had heard Big’s work on the Who’s The Man? soundtrack a year or so earlier but outside of that there wasn’t much material (at least that I had access to). Then, while watching Video Music Box on a saturday morning during the summer of 1994, I caught the first showing of the video to ‘Juicy’. Me = hooked. A few weeks later I headed over to to Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream NY and picked up the cassette single to ‘Juicy’ with the B side ‘Unbelievable’ and the hype just continued. In late September me and two of my boys hopped on the bus back to Green Acres Mall on a cold fall day to scoop Ready To Die and use the money that was supposed to go to my school lunch to buy the album (on CD). Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat battles would never be the same, listen to one of my repeat songs (where you would take your little boom box and hit that repeat button so you didn’t have to get up and keep pressing the back arrow) below!
Foxy Brown and Lil’ Kim on a track? The Remix shall heal all. Thats right folks, in 1996 these sworn enemies teamed up for this classic remix of Total’s single ‘No One Else’. This is the Remix……..Check it out below.
BIG & Pac are still alive?! Mmmmmm not quite. In 1999 this remix to Juveniles original track titled ‘Ha’ perfectly blended the vocals of the two late legends. If you’ve never heard this version then its about that time. Hit play below.
