56. Jadakiss f/ Styles P "We Gonna Make It" (2001)
Album: Kiss tha Game Goodbye
Label: Ruff Ryders, Interscope
This was originally intended for Ras Kass, but after his record label dropped the ball and didn't pay Alchemist properly for the beat, he gave it to Jadakiss, resulting in Ras getting pissed and leaking his version to mixtapes before releasing a diss track called "Kiss U" aimed at ALC. Regardless, Jada and Styles P do a fine job of verbally "balling outta control" over an expertly-chopped symphony of swirling strings and horns.
