Puff Daddy was hitting his best just-happy-to-be-here jig throughout this whole video. This was back when a Puff Daddy assist on a track lended a unique energy and before people blamed Sean Combs for every artist on Bad Boy who ever failed. The fact is, especially during the time this remix came out, a single track from Bad Boy’s goldmine could change your life forever and get you heard by people who wouldn’t care otherwise. The fact that Craig Mack was given a lineup of LL Cool J, Rampage, Busta Rhymes and last but not least The Notorious B.I.G. is almost payment enough. “Flava In Your Ear (Remix)” is one of those remixes that make you forget the original song altogether. Classic verses on here.
“…Don’t be mad, UPS is hiring…” Shade.
