Last week I thought it was a good idea to have all of Jay-Z‘s musical catalog in my
iTunes Music App. And while I do have a lot of Shawn Carter’s music there already, I just have the ones that I initially enjoyed. But maybe I was wrong. Maybe I need to listen to “Guns & Roses” again. Let’s give “Squeeze 1st” another try (Don’t ask me why that song is not on YouTube).
I might need to take a moment to point out that I don’t usually stream music; I download all my songs. How do I get all my songs? I don’t know. Get out of my business.
This whole process also gave me a chance to grab songs that I just slipped my mind. Why the hell don’t I have “Beware Of The Boys” with Punjabi MC? Why wouldn’t I have the whole MTV Unplugged album? Another one of these songs is the remix to “Money, Cash, Hoes” aka “More Money, More Cash, More Hoes”.
When DMX played the original version of “Money, Cash, Hoes” at his recent Verzuz battle with Snoop, I immediately start rapping the remix version. While the OG version of the song is a classic, I feel that the remix might be a bit better if only because Jay, Memphis Bleek, & Beanie Sigel are not as locked into matching the beat’s rhythm as much.
I also forgot that “More Money, More Cash, More Hoes (Remix)” was on the soundtrack to the 1999 movie The Corruptor starring Chow Yun-fat and Mark Wahlberg (Yes, it’s listed as “More Money, More Cash, More Hoes (Remix)” on the soundtrack’s tracklist). I glanced at the other songs on the soundtrack and the only one I recognize immediately is “Take It Off” by UGK (Which also appears on Dirty Money) and “5 Boroughs” (Which I may be confusing with “Touch It (Remix)” by Busta Rhymes).
Check out “Money, Cash, Hoes (Remix)” and the original version below.
