The 90's aren't considered the "Golden Era" just for hip-hop. It's also known for being the decade when the hottest remixes were created! A remix in 2011 is adding another rapper or singer on a song, or spitting a slightly different verse over the original beat. That's not a remix, and it's a pretty lazy approach if you ask me! A REAL remix is when the original song is totally reworked and transformed into something else like Optimus Prime. It needs a new beat (slower or faster than the original), different lyrics, reworked hooks and melodies to make it a legit remix.

Producers like Eddie F, All-Star, Puff Daddy, Teddy Riley, Jermaine Dupri, Chunky Thompson, Kenny Smoove, The Ummah, etc. did just that back in the good ole' days. This mixx is a tribute to that generation of producers. I through in a couple extended versions of tracks I hadn't heard in a while as well, so pull out your Cross Colour short sets and enjoy!
