    I didn't. No way. Whatever the case, that's the definitive version, IMO.

    The trouble with this thread is it has nothing to do with if you think an artist deserves the beat or not, as the chances are if you don't like the MC then it's only logical for someone to say that so and so would have ridden the beat better.

    So a better way to look at this thread is to say what artist would of sounded better rapping on said record instead of the artist that is already on the record?

    I would have preferred another MC over the beat for "It's a boy". Love the beat, not the rap.

    I also love the Deda LP, but he's a very average MC over vintage Pete Rock..

    He's way more charismatic than fucking INI, though.

    Not so much that - I was never sure the vocals were a good fit for the beat.

    That's right Mike. This was just something that was a little more gully than the album version (of which there several versions floating around) for the Back2Back Mix that DJ Ev and I did. For the record, though, Kim DID write this song with some editing by BIG. Jay was hired to replace the Kim's verse where she was popping a lot of sh*t, and as a result, Puffy said the verse had to go. Remember, Atlantic, Kim's label, needed to be on Puffy's good side because the Junior MAFIA deal wouldn't have made much sense without the ability to get clearance for BIG from Bad Boy.
    Stretch didnt remember the 12" until he saw the label scan. He's pretty sure he pressed it himself and did about 500-1000 copies.
