#89. QB Finest "Da Bridge 2001" (2000)

#89. QB Finest "Da Bridge 2001" (2000)

Produced By: Marley Marl, L.E.S.
Album: Nas and Ill Will Records Present QB Finest
Label: Ill Will/Columbia

A landmark showing of unity was on full display with the phenomenally strong cast that gathered to remake MC Shan and Marley Marl's impactful "The Bridge" (1986), the nickname given to the Queensbridge Houses, the largest PJs in North America and a breeding ground for hip-hop talent. Although many of the participants had had some sort of misunderstanding with each other in the past, that was all put aside as Nas, Mobb Deep, Capone, Nature, Cormega, Tragedy Khadafi, and Millennium Thug formed like Voltron over L.E.S.'s thugged-up power boost of the O.G. track. Nas closes the show, spitting rapidly (and subliminally dissing the Roc), but Mega Montana sums up the shared sentiment of what makes the place where stars are born so great: "Yo, it ain't just the music, group aspirations or ghetto illusions/It's the product, east side, and all the beautiful children/And unleashed dreams comin' through each building."
