The Unstoppable Def Jam Sampler (1999)

The late 90s saw Def Jam reclaim their spot at the top of the industry following a few years of dominance by Bad Boy and Death Row. The addition to the roster of the Rocafella and Murder Inc imprints alongside DMX and Redman & Method Man meant they pretty much had the East Coast locked down. This promo CD has a few things that weren't available elsewhere and is well worth checking out...


Def Squad 'Full Cooperation'
DMX & Ja Rule 'I Shot Ya' freestyle
Ja Rule 'Criminology' freestyle
Jayo Felony ft Mack 10, WC, Method Man & DMX 'Whatcha Gonna Do'
LL Cool J 'The Ripper Strikes Back'
Method Man & Redman 'How High' (Live)
Method Man, Redman & DMX '4,3,2,1' (Live)
Onyx 'Freestyle'

NB: I've omitted the snippet tracks - if you really need a 90 second preview of Jay Z's 'Can I Get A...' this probably isn't the blog for you.


  1. Good choice. I've got this, there's at least one more volume.

  2. Just found it in the 50p section. You know whats on Volume 2?

  3. Yes, I have volume 2:

    Foxy Brown - La Familia 4.09
    Slick Rick - Kill Niggas 2.09
    DMX - Ruff Ryders Anthem 2.59
    Redman - I Got A Seecret 1.42
    Cormega - Testament 4.02
    Ja Ruke Feat Jay-Z - Kill 'Em All 1.41
    Montell Jordan Feat Redman - Anything And Everything 4.21
    Christion Feat Jay Z - BRing Back Your Love 3.59
    Case - Where Did Our Love Go 1.34
    Absolute - Nver Wanna Let You Go 3.47
    Rell Feat Jay Z - Love For Free 3.33
    Case & Joe - Faded Pictures 1.47

    So, as you can see, colume 1 was much better ! haha

  4. There was a sampler that came with the Def Squad album, hosted by Meth & Red. I think that might have had an exclusive or two

  5. Is La Familia by Foxy just the The Firm song or a Foxy solo version over the same beat?
