Nyte Tyme

I'm back and forth on which version is better - this Premo remix or Showbiz's original. Luckily, both versions appear on the duo's undervalued Goodfellas LP (1995). I tend to lean a little more towards Premo's more sparser sound on the remix but Show's heavier original with its use of the rhythmic guitar loop definitely puts the track in its own lane. Premo's remix really pushes A.G's delivery front and center and plays as the perfect backdrop to the gritty Bronx-bomber's formidable flow.

It's a win/win either way.
