Pete Rock beat is magical no other words

a good way to explain how I feel about the remix, Pete brought a whole new energy to the song. I don't look at either one as better, Premier's version is more boom bap heavy and funky.

The nice part about the 2 is that I think of Jazz fusion when hearing Pete's, then I think of Soul when hearing Premier's: 2 different genres of music I really enjoy. It's almost the same feeling when I compare Jeru's You Cant Stop The Prophet with Pete's jazz-based remix.

I can't pick either version, I like both.

two of the illest beats ever, i give it to pete rock but could change any minute to preemo...incredible track!

Both versions are crazy (it can't be different when these two are behind the boards), but i prefer pete rock's version simply because there is some intrigue and mystery behind his beat, while premo brought that classic bass thumping style.

I gotta go with Premo in this one. Both producers blessed the track with their respective beats, but Premier's version has always been a personal favourite of mine.

id have to give it to Soul Brother #1 in this round. Preemo version is dope with heavy bass, the track seems more "bouncy". PR flipped it to give it a more "serious" tone to the lyrics.

both great versions of the track tho

Pete Rock wins this one. I'm listening to instrumental now, and I think I'd be hard pressed to find a hip-hop instrumental better than this one.

this song of Das sounds better over Premos beat

Petes joint is more fancy and sonically beautiful as usual - but that Premo joint is head boppin heavy kick shit that i'd rather hear this song to
