C Notes: Ghost Town DJs “My Boo”


Clover Hope / February 17, 2010

“Boy, you should know that/I’ve got you on my mind…”

No, I’m not talking about the Usher & Alicia Keys duet. Before those two hooked up to croon about that special someone, there was Ghost Town DJs. The remix to Mariah Carey’s recent Memoirs Of An Imperfect Angel single, “H.A.T.E.U.,” samples Ghost Town DJs’ 1996 bounce jam “My Boo,” which was a mainstay at all the basement parties back in the day. Jermaine Dupri is the mastermind behind both tracks (“My Boo” is on the So So Def Bass All Stars compilation). Check the sudsy video below and reminisce.
