The year is 2006 and Jim Jones, a member of the famed Harlem hip-hop collective Dip-Set, is riding high off of the success of his latest and greatest solo single “We Fly High”. Following the rules of big singles, a remix is released. But this one isn’t just another remix that get’s a couple plays because of the original, this version competes (in my opinion) with the original with a stacked list of features. ATL’s T.I., Mogul Diggy, Dip-Set’s own Juelz Santana, Baby aka Birdman, and Bankhead’s Young Tro hop on this remix and it is crazy.
“500 on the Bentley, 50 G’s on the caddy,
100 G’s on my ho, cuz we both livin’ lavish,
Doin’ my thang with this uptown swang,
Niggas get it how we live like money ain’t a thang”

Personally, I remember playing basketball on a team for the first time in grade 7, and listening to this track, EVERY SINGLE DAY, before practice and getting into the mindset. I was 5’5, 98 pounds soaking wet, and terrible at basketball, but you can best believe when I rapped the whole song word for word I thought I was about to throw on the first defender I caught sleeping. Thank you Jim Jones for the classic.
“You’ve just been included in the Ballaz Extravaganza,
You are now a Ballaholic, just like my team (Dipset)”
