25 Remixes That Made You Forget About The Original

Eric B. & Rakim "Paid In Full (Seven Minutes Of Madness - The Coldcut Remix)" (1987)


"Paid in Full," the title cut from Eric B. & Rakim's masterpiece, thrived off Rakim's flawless rhymes and Eric B.'s flip of Dennis Edwards' "Don't Look Any Further." It became a hit when British dance producers got ahold of it and released the Seven Minutes of Madness remix, which doubled the running time and added new samples. Eric B. hated it (and called it "girly disco music"), Rakim loved it, and it became one of the first examples of a song's remix becoming a hit single.
