This album is actually one of my favorites of all time. Craig Mack drops a verse on here. Biggie (RIP) drops two verses. Puff is on the intro as well as using a crazy voice during a slamming remix of 'What's The 411' - you see, this was the Bad Boy we all came to grow and love before it became known for it's love of money. It's East Coast/Hip-Hop/R&B with a touch of ghetto fab to the fullest. Only one weak song, "Changes I've Been Going Through..."
And Mary - she kills it, and lays out the red carpet for her much touted, 'My Life' in 1994. Especially for the Mary fans who liked the combat boots and the thug girl image, this one is for you. Loved it, loved it, and still love it. Peep her duet with K-Ci, "I Don't Wanna Do Anything Else" produced by DeVante. That makes this album a must have by itself.
AND, you'll be surprised to hear Heavy D drop a then unknown chorus (a full year before he released the actual song) on her Teddy Riley remix of "My Love"...Heavy starts saying, "I Got Nothin But Love For Ya Baby..."...now isn't that tight?
Out.

This is classic Mary @her best. This cd has all the remixes that you usually hear in the club. B.I.G. Craig Mack, Grand Puba just to name a few make cameos in the songs. If you are a real mary fan....U need to have this cd in your collection.

This remix album is not as bad as these pop music fanatics are making it seem. I remember having fond memories of this album when it was out. It was a nice companion piece for What's The 411. The complaint about the DJ intros is stupid because Hip Hop and R&B ran harmonious together and not as divided as they are now.

Tracks like My Love(feat Heavy D), Real Love(feat Notorious Big), Reminisce(feat CL Smooth), I Don't Want To Do Anything(feat K-Ci Hailey) are excellent tracks that stand out and remind you why we all fell in love with Mary J Blige in the first place. Sweet Thing, Changes I've Been Through, You Remind Me, What's The 411 and Love No Limit are pretty good remix tracks that give this album replay value. The only questionable track is the remix to You Dont Have To Worry feat Craig Mack. That track will never be better than the original that was off of the Who's The Man soundtrack. Other than that this album is slammin and is recommended to any MJB fans.

Standouts: MY LOVE, REAL LOVE(my favorite), REMINISCE, SWEET THING, LOVE NO LIMIT, YOU REMIND ME, I DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING ELSE and WHAT'S THE 411.

Mary J. Blige released this remix album about a year after the original album came out. The songs already had a hip hop edge to them but now they have been revamped with even more hip hop. This is quite an enjoyable album especially if you just chilling at the crib with some folks (which I do a lot). Every remix is tight save for the Sweet Thing remix...you just can't remix that type of song and keep the same tempo and have it be good. Notorious BIG raps on two of the songs (Real Love and What's The 411) so that's another plus. But the X-Factor here is Mary J. Blige. She just has a knack for making great tracks and albums. Buy This Album right now if you haven't already. 5 Stars.

Interestingly enough? The only reason I got this CD and even knew it existed was because of a mail ordering accident right here on Amazon.com. At the time this CD didn't have a separate listing. So I ordered this thinking I was going to get Mary's debut What's the 411. When I got this? I'd never heard of it so kept it to listen to after I'd heard that debut. When I finally got a real copy of that album? I was very disappointed. It was a bit predictable and very much of its...year let alone its time for something as hyped as it was upon release. And the hip-hop/soul sound of that era could be made samey to the extreme if not done just right,in my opinion. Anyway today for no important reason,I decided to take this album out and give it a listen. Just to see how the music translated through the remix process. The end result was both surprising and unsurprising somehow.

A good deal of the songs on this album actually extend the more dull instrumental elements,almost all surrounding the beats,that were present on the original album. The rapping-provided by everyone from Heavy D and K-Ci Hailey and Mary herself is very high in quality. That being said the rapping element of her hip-hip soul sound is more evident here. Note that rap and hip-hop are not mutually exclusive. Though the lyrics are nothing more than a recorded phone conversation? The more horn based funk backing on "Leave Me A Message" has a vibrant,grooving instrumental sound. Same goes for the remix of Mary's big hit "Real Love",which I believe is built on a sample of the bass/guitar loop of Honey Comb's "Want Ads".
