---**UPDATE**---

First off thanks for the replies, glad people liked it.  

Second, at 2nd glance I really rushed the mix below and had to revisit it to do it justice. Because people are feeling this I went back and gave this a proper mix and mastering, front to back, end to end--PROPER. Sonically, the track sounds much more SOLID now, clear, balanced, rich. The drums are mixed (well!), I custom eq'd nearly every track, adjusted/tightened up the vocals, dropped out the low end, used more focused limiting and punchier compression. Now, you'll actually be able to burn this and play it in your car and it might sound like it came from a store bought CD. Apologies for being indecisive and making you download this again but it IS WORTH IT! Huge difference in quality.

Enjoy (again)  :)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

The story with this track is the original was produced by Wyldfyer but DefJam couldn't clear the sample (Friends of Distinction: “And I Love Him”) in time so they just threw the acapella on the album instead. Some time after, Wyldfyer put the original track WITH the beat on his myspace page and it flooded all over the net. He then removed it, presumably to avoid stepping on toes or creating legal problems, so now the track only exists as a lonely, degraded, un-mixed, myspace mp3 rip lurking in the shadows of the internet. So what we’re left with is a fairly unlistenable song, really only suitable for reference…. until now.

Using the sample I recreated the beat using my own interpolation and laid the vocals over it. If you’ve ever heard the version Wyldfyer posted you’ll notice several differences here. 1) the drums are different on this one, 2) there’s additional instrumentation on this one, 3) this is mixed, 4) this is all done by me, 5) this is CDQ  :)

this is mad dope.  too bad more of the album didn't have this jazzy-esque production. 

you should do a remix of Hip-Hop is Dead album and Kingdom Come album.  I loved the MIck Boogie American Gangster mix with Marvin Gaye.

Way better than your first posting, and better than the original.  the only gripe I have is you should pitchshift the sample higher then it is.  In the original song the sample gives that old-time high frequency radio feeling with the higher pitched sample....

Yeah the beat sounds great now. Deff happy with it. And btw everyone was right the volume was too low before, I uploaded the wrong file. Here is the correct one with the correct vocal volume. Haha, ready for DL # 3?? Last one I promise! (link above updated as well)

doper!

edit:

i really dig this because the various drums get shined and you can hear the difference in them.  too many cats just mix shit and it all sounds butt fucked up.  this is crisp and clear.
