It’s one of those unanswered questions in hip-hop: who invented the remix? One man claims he’s the king of this sh*t, giving us an album in 2002 baring the name, We Invented the Remix, and his work early on in the nineties, make this a solid argument. We called him Puff Daddy back then, and he’s produced and jumped on some of the dopest remixes in rap’s prime. Here are a few Puff Daddy remixes that could still get spins in 2014.
Mariah Carey’s “Honey (remix)” featuring Puff Daddy, Mase and The Lox
Puff Daddy, The Lox, The Notorious B.I.G. and Lil’ Kim – “It’s All About the Benjamins (remix)”
112’s “Only You (remix)” featuring The Notorious B.I.G. and Mase
The Notorious B.I.G.’s “One More Chance / Stay with Me Remix “with Faith Evans
*Not from the nineties but we just had to include it because yes, it still gets spins at parties.*
G. Dep’s “Special Delivery (remix)” featuring Ghostface Killah, Keith Murray, Craig Mack and P. Diddy
