The Original: "Ruff Ryders' Anthem," by DMX
The Remix: "Ruff Ryder's Anthem (Remix)," by DMX, featuring Drag-On, Eve, Jadakiss and Styles P
The Outcome: "Stop...DROP...SHUT 'EM DOWN, OPEN UP SHOP!" If Swizz Beatz never produced another record after this one, we wouldn't have been mad. Just like we weren't mad when DJ Clue bogarted the remix for his debut album, The Professional, in 1998. Truthfully, just about anyone would have sounded right over this beat, but the Ruff Ryders proved they were for real when they rode out on this one.
