The Remix: "Scenario," by A Tribe Called Quest, featuring Leaders of the New School, Kid Hood and Busta Rhymes
The Outcome: Here's the scenario: Any of the Puffy/Bad Boy remixes listed here could have landed atop this list. But this remix had it all. Classic artists? Tribe. Hungry newcomer? Busta Rhymes. Controversy? Rookie rapper Kid Hood died just days after recording his verse for the song. As a posse cut—and as a remix—"Scenario" deserves a spot at the head of the class.
