Bringing the rappers together to spread the universal message of Jah
Being both a reggae fanatic and a hip hop bedroom DJ I have a sweet tooth for rap-reggae colloborations. So I was also really into Game’s ”It’s Okay (One blood)” that featured Junior Reid. Mr. Reid has been doing his stuff for a long time, he made his first single in the 70’s and a few records with Black Uhuru in the 80’s to drop some facts. And we hip hop heads remember that the Staten Island posse Wu-Tang sampled him a few years ago on the song “One Blood Under The W".
All you true Game fans know this by now, but I only recently found out that there is a new remix version of the song out. And not just a remix, it’s the longest remix in the history of hip hop: the total running time is almost 12 minutes. It features a long list of players from all around the States: Jim Jones, Snoop,Nas,TI, Fat Joe,Lil Wayne, NORE, Jadakiss, Styles P, Fabolous, Juelz, Rick Ross, Twista, Kurupt, Daz, WC, E-40, Bun B, Chamillionaire, Slim Thug, Young Dro, Clipse & Ja Rule…. Whooah.
