Fat Joe and Dre look like the Puerto Rican versions of Puffy and Biggie on this singles artwork.
One of the unlikeliest of hits came about from the duo of Fat Joe and Dre, a collaboration in which both artists sampled one of Biggie’s major hits in “Get Money.” This time around, the duo decided to sample yet another great rapper (Tupac), rhyming over his infamous “Ambitionz of a Ridah” beat.
Before I say anything else, I want to make it clear: This version of the song is nowhere tougher than Pac’s original version. Now that I got that comment out the way, I can acknowledge that I like the energy that Dre brings on the chorus of this song, and respect the dynamic flows that Fat Joe spits with on his verses. It’s definitely a tough record, still.
I think this is one of the best beats of all time!
