1. Nas ft. AZ — “Life’s A Bitch” (Mtume “Juicy Fruit” Version by Fielding) (AUDIO).

    What if…?

    “The record that my DJ L.E.S. was supposed to bring [to a recording session] was the ‘Juicy Fruit’ record by Mtume , and he winded up bringing ‘Yearning For Your Love’ by the Gap Band somehow, and we just used that record,” Nas told HipHopDX in 2012. “We wanted to use ‘Juicy,’ and I love ‘Life’s a B[itch],’ but when [the Notorious B.I.G.’s] ‘Juicy’ came out, it took me a while to get over that… this wasn’t the days of now where you can go online and just download the song; [L.E.S.] drove from Queens to Manhattan, and we wanted to get the song done, so we didn’t want to wait for [him to retrieve it] and the record stores were closed… Back then, we had to do what we had to do.”

    Note: This blend is from 2012.
