DJ Greg Street ft. Lupe Fiasco, Wale & Kardinal Offishall - Dope Boys (Remix)
On June 9, 1992, the legendary duo of Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth dropped the hip-hop classic, Mecca and the Soul Brother. On September 30, 2008, Atlanta disc jockey Greg Street, a.k.a. the Voice of the People, will release an Interscope-distributed compilation project, entitled Greg Street: Certified. So what do these two releases, sixteen years apart, have to do with one another? Following in the footsteps of Street’s lead single, the Nappy Roots-helmed Good Day, comes a remixed version of an unreleased Lupe Fiasco track called Dope Boys. Completely unrelated to The Game’s Dope Boyz, the song features reworked production from producer Don Cannon, who used Rock and Smooth’s single They Reminisce Over You, as his foundation. Joining Fiasco (and he reused lyrics) are emcees Wale and Kardinal Offishall.
