I was a big fan of early G Unit mixtape material (and was a bit disappointed with GRODT) so had to throw the freestyle over CREAM in there to kick things off. Busta, Rae and someone called M Dollars over the Nas beat is taken from DJ L's 'The Game Is Mine' CD, as is Noreaga & Nature over Fab's 'Breathe'. The version of Renegade with Royce instead of Jigga is from a Kay Slay tape and as far as I'm aware is pretty rare. I love the beat on the Gravy/Juelz/JR Writer track but have no other info on it at all. It sounds like a full track but was listed as a freestyle on Cutmaster C's 'Blackout 2003' mix. The live recording of Jadakiss is awesome - he disses Beanie Sigel, in Sigel's hometown. Crowd goes apeshit. Goosebump business. I'd kill for an untagged 320 of the 'Desert Storm' posse cut from Clue's Cherry Lounge mixtape, with its flip of the 'Money Power Respect' beat, but don't think that's ever gonna happen. The Pharaohe Monch track is (I think) from around 2004/05 when he was rumoured to be signing with Shady/Aftermath. Great track and shame it never saw the light of day. The Game track that wraps things up is one of the best he's ever done and as far as I can tell only exists in sub par quality which is a huge shame. If you only listen to one track on this comp make sure its that one.
