Fifty Remixes You Need To Hear (11-20)

11. KMD ft. MF Grimm “What A Niggy Know” (Remix)

12. Lord Finesse “S.K.I.T.S.” (Remix)
The original was sparser and more raw, but this remix is more layered, ringing, and insistent, which lends itself well to the tone of alarm being conveyed. Adding Big L to the chorus was an excellent decision.
13. Common Sense “Soul By The Pound” (Thump Mix)
14. Casual “That’s How It Is” (Disshowwedo Remix)
15. Grand Puba ft. Sadat X “I Like It” (Buckwild Remix)

This one isn’t hugely different from the hit original, but Buckwild manages to give it a more hardcore feel without sacrificing its mass appeal. Sadat X.’s cameo is one of his finest.
16. Artifacts “Dynamite Soul II” (Lip Service Remix)
17. Aceyalone “Mic Check” (Kemo Remix)
Kemo’s version of Aceyalone’s catchy ode to rocking shows and raking in the dough was the top finalist in a remix contest announced on the original’s sleeve. Besides being a banger of a beat, it also complements Aceyalone’s whimsical vocals quite well.
18. Camp Lo “Coolie High” (Paradise Remix)
Only Camp-Lo can out-smooth Camp-Lo. This version pulls off that sultry slick nonsensical jewel heist vibe that these BX rhymers consistently aimed for in their heyday.
19. Bush Babees “Remember Me” (Salaam Remi Remix)
20. Alkaholiks “Mary Jane” (Remix)
Tune in tomorrow for selections 21-30.
