I do a radio show once a month and I was playing a bunch of recent music I was stuck on and had to play this song…the only problem is that she drops like 5 f-bombs, but I was determined. I imported the track and edited the song myself just so I could play it. Granted it was a crude radio edit, but I was able to play it. (also has an awesome video)
Jay Z actually rapped on this song…like when he used to talk about selling drugs.

“With his rhymes just cruising effortlessly over the beat, this slick verse from Gibbs gives this ultra smooth remix its necessary street flavor while still retaining that nostalgic ’90s R&B vibe.” (via Jonathan Viray, Hypebeast)
Easily one of my favorite tracks of the year and the entire is album is solid, which is hard to say these days. Her voice is brooding and the production is almost cinematic.
