Cherish traded one heavy hitter for another in the remix to Killa, replacing Yung Joc with veteran Jermaine Dupri and So So Def newcomer The Kid Slim. Slim gives an entertaining verse toward the end, but Dupri, who does more singing than rapping, only makes an appearance at the beginning of the song (unless you count the four words at the end). We’ll allow him to slide since he’s the mastermind behind the remix. The new beat has more of a Lil Jon feel than the semi-techno sound of the original, but the lyrics in the verses, chorus and bridge are all maintained. Cherish will release their new album, The Truth, on April 29.
