At some point in his career, Stretch Armstrong seems to have lost interest in the underground hip-hop his famous radio show (The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show on WKCR) had begun to represent and focused his energies on violent Queens music, resulting in a number of dope street records. His remix for "Usual Suspects" introduced a contrasting sound to the Mobb beats that Noyd usually rode over, presenting a slightly lighter mood for him to threaten your life over, without sacrificing those ever-important crunchy snares.
