Mary J. Blige f/ Jadakiss & Fabolous “Family Affair (Remix)” (2001)

Produced by: Dr. Dre

Jadakiss: “MJB is like our mentor. She’s our OG from Yonkers. On that particular song, I remember her brother, Bruce, reaching out to me. I think he was one of the co-writers on that song with her. He was like, ‘You know we need you for the remix. We got Fab on it too.’ We made that happen. When MJB call, you gotta go through and make it do what it do baby. She’s like the Queen from Hoodlum. Being on big records is definitely beneficial. It keeps you relevant, keeps you hot, and good publishing checks. You need it anyway if you love to [rap]. I’ll get on anything if it’s hot, if I like it. It don’t even have to be if the world likes it. If I like it, I’ll mess with it.”
