#39. Da Brat f/ The Notorious B.I.G. & Jermaine Dupri "Da B Side"
Year: 1995 Produced By: Jermaine Dupri Album: Bad Boys OST Label: Work/Sony
Believe it or not, back in the mid-'90s, Da Brat was one of the biggest artists in hip-hop. First female rapper to go platinum? Check. The go-to female featured artist of that era? Check. So it was only right that she'd collaborate with the King of New York. That was a rite of passage, after all. This Jermaine Dupri–produced, Gap Band–sampling banger was the standout cut on an otherwise boring Bad Boys soundtrack.
