A good lot of you may not remember this song. In fact, most of you won’t. Jagged Edge and Nas hooked up for the remix of “I Got It” in 2001 (the original had Trina on it and was, some how, more forgettable than the remix which no one remembers).
About a month or so ago, I found my old iPod and started listening through the old girl to see if there were any hidden gems. This one, by far, came in first place.
I hadn’t heard this song in years, possibly between 5 and 10. Maybe more.
But instantly, it brought me right back to how much I’d loved it when I’d first heard it as a young high school student. I remembered the beat, the music video, the Nas verse that inexplicably uses every astrological sign. It all came back to me.
It must have played on my iTunes one out of every four songs I chose for about a week plus. It was bliss.
From totally forgotten to first in the queue, in a matter of moments.
Polar Opposite of this Feeling?: Where I’m at now with that song, after having listened to it so many fucking times.
