What Come Around (Go Around, Kid) #3

The second option for the tenth track was N.O.R.E featuring Jadakiss and Kurupt ‘Throw ‘Em Under The Bus ’.

11. I chose to follow this with a remix of the Jadakiss track ‘Why?’ which features Common and Styles P.

12. Common works a lot with Kanye being that they are fellow Chicagoans so here’s ‘Southside’ from Commons ‘Finding Forever’ album.

13. Staying in ’07 and featuring on ‘Graduation’ (I think) is Kanye’s ‘Can’t Tell me Nothin’ remix featuring Young Jeezy.

14. Young Jeezy also worked with Kanye on ‘I Got Money ’ but more importantly this cut is a duo with fellow southerner T.I.

15. T.I. probably paid the price of a reasonable semi detached house for this cameo from Def Jam’s big man Jay-Z: ‘Watch What You Say’.

16. A nice surprise last year was the release of Lupe Fiasco’s first album proper; ‘Food & Liquor’. Guess who appeared here too on 'Pressure '? Yeah, Hova.

17. On the same album was a track produced by Mike Shinoda of poppy/rappy nu-metallers Linkin Park; ‘The Instrumental ’.

18.Reanimation was a remix album by Linkin Park, other people. One of those other people was The Alchemist who kindly remixed ‘Forgotten’ only for someone to rename it something ridiculous like ‘FRGT10’ (dya see what they did there?). This track also features Chali 2na.

19. Chali 2na worked alongside Supernatural, Akil, Marc 7 and Rakaa (of Dilated Peoples) but more importantly the UK’s own Joe Buhdah produced this soulful head nodder - 'Work it Out'.(Note the other Alchemist link here: Dilated Peoples production)

20.The 20th track? The final link in the chain? Joe Buhdah produced Rodney P’s ‘The Future’, the title track of his 2004 album.

There, it can be done in two different ways.
