Within the first 10 seconds of Hip-Hop, Joell Ortiz sends a message loud and clear: If you think you know what hip-hop is, you have no clue. Since Ortiz already accomplished that mission on the original version of this single, he decided to fulfill an unknown east coast prophecy and grab Saigon (the best New York rapper incapable of releasing a radio single) and Jadakiss (lucky to not be behind bars) for the remix. In what is a true representation of why New York should always be proud of their hip-hop, the three MCs put in work and reward the listener.
