    @Ivan,

    You know I was second-guessing myself as soon as I hit “submit”. How could I not give props to Hip Hop Is Read? …My bad.

  • Rocgpt

    Wow good looking out!

  • Shanetron

    Great job! I appreciate the work you went through to put this together. I checked through the credits, and the only thing I saw missing was the Rick James live thing, which was used in Runaway, and was also used in Live Fast, Die Young off Rick Ross’ Teflon Don.

    Also, happy birthday Andrew!

    Also, I dig the Kevin Nottingham nod!

      Great Post. Props go out to anyone of you that have an appreciation to all the elements of Hip Hop and it true origins. If anyone can assist me with this it will be much appreciated. I feel as though I recognize the sample KW used in the song, “See Me Now” featuring Beyonce and Charlie Wilson and was released before MDBTF, but can’t recall or find it anywhere. Does anyone know what song was used?

    You have likely already determined that while insurance is mandatory, it can
    prove to be rather expensive if you aren’t always on the lookout for the cheapest deal out there. If you have a preference for a particular company therefore, visiting their website will provide the opportunity to get a quote from them. For example, if you need basic liability instead of comp and collision you need to specify this on the form.
