Singled Out: Ace Hood's Go N Get It (FT. Beanie Sigel, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T & Styles P)
When I decided I wanted to do a remix to "Go N Get It," I knew I wanted it to be something big but also something different. I've been lucky enough to be a part of some big records but I wanted to make this something new where I brought in some people I hadn't worked with before. I wanted to really involve the streets and embody the struggle from different parts of the country.
When I sat down to get this all done I made a list of who I wanted involved. I set out on a mission to make this track showcase different areas and the mentalities that come with them.
First, I called Beanie Sigel and I rapped the hook to him over the phone he was so inspired that he started rapping his verse back to me right then and there. I knew then that Beans was going to bring the track up a level, I could hear the struggle in his voice. He killed it.
Next up I went to Busta Rhymes, a real O.G., one of the greats! When you deal with Busta you know you're only going to end up with the best. Having a legend like him on the remix meant a lot to me. Now we'd hit Philly with Beans and New York with Busta so I decided to head south and get Pusha T involved. The track is really about getting the streets involved different blocks and areas and what they are about. Pusha reps VA and brought his side of the hustle to the song. After Pusha I only had one more person I needed to push it all over the edge. That's when I went to Styles P and added some more New York vibe to it.
I didn't let anyone know who else was going to be on the track, I kept it all internal. I'd tease it here and there to some of them, but for the most part people were in the dark. I ended up getting everyone I wanted and created a real street remix that I am proud of. Everyone involved did their thing and so far everyone has loved it. The response has been real positive across the board.
