Not since Craig Mack’s Flava In Ya Ear has any rapper found a way to gather several of the East Coast’s best MCs on a remix—until now. Give credit to N.O.R.E. who reached that milestone on the remix to his underground club banger, Set It Off. Swizz Beatz’ production and hook remain intact, and N.O.R.E. spits a hot new guest verse, even bringing up T.I.‘s recent federal weapons charges. However, the new guest rappers steal the show as Busta Rhymes, Talib Kweli, Cassidy, & Red Café illustrate how an East Coast club banger oughta be handled. While this remix certainly deserves plenty of spins, only time will tell if it will be remembered a decade from now like Flava In Ya Ear.
