17. LL Cool J f/ Master P, DMX, Canibus, Method Man & Redman "4,3,2,1 (Remix)" (1997)
Label: Def Jam
Producer: Erick Sermon, LL Cool J
LL Cool J's 1997 single "4, 3, 2, 1" accidentally tripped off one of the most savage rap battles of the '90s when LL mistook a line from guest rapper Canibus for a subliminal diss and made him change his lyrics, only to drop his own sucker punch of a rebuttal in the finished version of the song. In light of all the hoopla surrounding the ensuing war of words between LL and Canibus, it's easy to forget that the "4, 3, 2, 1" remix is the first appearance of No Limit general Master P on an East Coast rap record. P shows up on the second to last verse to pay homage ("Master P rock bells, hell, but I gotta give it up to my homie LL").
