18. The Roots f/ Malik B, Dice Raw & Beanie Sigel "Adrenaline" (1999)
Murderer: Beanie Sigel
Album: Things Fall Apart Label: MCA Producer: The Grand Wizzards/Jay Dee Cold Cases: Raekwon's "Have Mercy," Ghostface Killah's "Barrel Brothers," Jay-Z's "Streets Is Talking"
One thing you can't ever say about the Roots is that they don't show brotherly love to their fellow Philly compatriots—whether Eve on "You Got Me," Peedi Crakk on "Get Busy," or Beans on this song. Whoever had the presence of mind to recognize that Beanie Sigel would be a great addition to this track deserves a pat on the back. The Broad Street Bully bats clean-up on "Adrenaline" and knocks this beat clean out of the park, giving his own career a nice jump-start.
