Today I have a lil` somethin` from the late great Notorious B.I.G. a.k.a. Biggie Smalls for y`all to check out. I believe that this is his first single titled "Party & Bullshit" which was released back in 1993 thru Uptown Records, it was also featured on the soundtrack to the film "Who`s The Man?". It contains 5 tracks in total; 3 radio/ edited versions of the track & 2 dirty versions. The first track "Party & Bullshit [Radio]" is probably the better of the 3 radio edits, the reason being that Biggie switched up his lyrics, it`s done on all 3 edited versions but on this one the hook`s not annoyingly edited...
I like the beat behind the "Party & Bullshit [Puffy`s Clean]" version, but the downside is that the hook`s annoyingly edited so it kind of takes away from the track, my opinion of course. The Lord Finesse Remix is definitely a DoPe track, however the clean/ edited version kind of sucks for the same reason that the Puffy`s Clean version blows....the hook`s annoyingly edited, I just don`t see why they didn`t do the same ish they did for the hook on the Radio Version, but that`s just me.....LoL, thankfully they included the dirty version of the Lord Finesse Remix as well as the Album Version so you can peep the rawness in the tracks the way they were intended to be heard, so go `head & check `em out for ya`self...
