Fat Joe Breaks Down His 25 Most Essential Songs

Fat Joe f/ Jadakiss & Remy Martin “My Lifestyle (Remix)” (2001)

Producer: Buckwild

Album: N/A

Label: N/A

Fat Joe: “The beat was by Buckwild. And the original had the streets in a frenzy in New York. We wanted to do a remix, and at the same time we had just signed Remy, so we wanted to give her exposure. And I went and got Jadakiss, who’s another one of the giants in New York. And we went in there, and we got crazy.

“And for me, that was the first time I had really started playing with new flows, like, ‘Hoodied down with the Mac/Boogie Down where it’s at/Fuck around hear the sound of them gats.’ I had never rapped like that before. It was evolution.”
