I was always impressed with the official version that came out on the Sunset Park album.  To me that's clearly the best version and most official.  Death Row was well represented on that soundtrack, as the Dogg Pound came with "Just Doggin" which was also released in different forms but the Sunset Park version was by far the best, in my opinion.  And for West Coast historians it was also the last moment when Death Row was at their strongest, Nate is still givin props to Dre in the song and the soundtrack dropped just as news came out that Dre left.  (It's funny because I was only just turning 14 when the track was released so when they said "now he's fucking up the whole rap industry" I wasn't sure if by "Fuckin Up" they meant Dre was going to ruin the industry by leaving Death Row or if they were giving him props)

...But I must admit that album was dominated by the Jermaine Dupri produced MC Lyte track—which is still one of the best R&B meets rap tracks I've ever heard.  As far as female emcees go that was a classic femcee track from MC Lyte "Keep On Keepin On".

That movie and soundtrack just brings me back to the good ol' dayz.... rap in its prime and my own life in its prime as well......

"I didn't do nothing but make people money and I didn't leave nobody high and dry.  Any album (on death row) people are going to check for.  But it's time for Dre to worry about Dre.  I'm focused on the new Snoop Doggs, not like that but you know what I mean."

Classic song! I love the way the track rewinds itself.
