We Invented the Remixby Diddy
While dance music veterans such as Jellybean Benitez (Madonna, Whitney Houston) and Shep Pettibone (George Michael, Janet Jackson) might dispute Sean "P. Diddy" Combs's immodest claim in this disc's title, few can deny that the rapper, producer, and Bad Boy Records CEO helped transport the remix beyond the dance floor and onto mainstream radio. Ever ready for a reason to celebrate, Diddy has compiled the self-congratulatory We Invented the Remix, a companion of sorts to 1998's boastful Bad Boy's Greatest Hits. The disc's highlights include several of early 2002's hottest remixes: a version of Ashanti's red-hot "Foolish" entitled "Unfoolish," featuring Notorious B.I.G.; Diddy's "I Need a Girl (Part Two)," featuring Ginuwine; a remix of G. Dep's "Special Delivery," featuring Ghostface Killah, Craig Mack, and Keith Murray; and a special reunion of P. Diddy and his former protégée Mary J. Blige on the "No More Drama" remix. Glaringly absent, however, is the party-startin' remix of Mr. Cheeks' "Lights, Camera, Action!" featuring Diddy and Missy Elliott. Perhaps the shrewd Diddy is saving that cut for his next praiseworthy compilation.

You can't deny mr. PD is the illest no one reallest, Once again he makes music history, buy having the biggest debut of a remix album. Plenty of good songs to make you shake it fast shake it fast.
yo, this cat from NY has once proven that through god, anything is possible. NAd P-diddy is the man right now!!! I listened to track three, and I was hooked ever sence. The whole album is just crazy. I mean he got mad peopel on the album, just representing to the fullest. I advise anybody to go and cop the album before its to late, the man got mad skills, and shows it all through the album. Holla
I liked the songs espcially the one ''I need a girl'' part one it was so good to listen to a good song .
THIS ALBUM IS OFF THE HEEZEE FOSHEEZEE! YOU GOT TO GO GET THIS JOINT ASAP! YOU ARE A FOOL IF YOU DON'T! HOLLA
This album was pretty tight because the song ''I Need A Girl'' is a real loud jam. It brings a sense of love and ''togetherness'' amongst people.
This was cool :)
P.Diddy...you invented the sample. Go collaborate with Cash Money records.
I'm not a big P.Diddy fan, but this album is pretty darn good! I really like the hip hop beats created in each of the tracks on this CD. It's something that I would bump in my car with the bass turned all the way up. If I were to have P.Diddy in my face right now, I would have to ask to shake the man's hand. He is really talented and this is, in my opinion one of his best works. My ears thank him as well. To anyone who is into the hip hop style, I recommend this CD. Plus on the disc you can find an mpeg video as a bonus feature.
u gots to get a copy of this album. Haters (pls don't lie, you just got to mess with it cos the album's so tight). Give this young black male his props!!! One BadBoy4Life Dapsy
Shawn this is an awsome Cd. I enjoy every thing on it and my friends do to. I have always loved your music and i think you are very cute.
I just got the ''We Invented the Remix'' CD today and let me tell you!!! This is one of tha best CDs i have purchased in a long time. P. Diddy took a bunch of hot tracks and remixed em all. When a songs remixed, it dont necessarily mean that u takin' a perfectly good song and ruinin' it- you just makin' it different na mean? People like variety and P. Diddy gave you a lotta that wit this cd. All yall that aint have it already betta cop that!!! ~Tricky J
Well what do you expect from P. Diddy? Lyrically weak ''MC'' with no mic skills and topics which rarely go beyond money and clothes. He's made a name for himself by ripping other artists' music, as opposed to making his own. This album is no different except for the fact that it's even more dull and unemotional than what we've come to expect from this wannabe rapper. To summarize the new album, which has only been played once by me, it consists of weak lyrics, recycled old music, and a whole lot of boring. Not worth your money.
This is the best of the best fellas, you can't go wrong here. I got this CD the day it came out and it has not left my CD player sense. This heres a must buy! ~Holla
this CD is wack no skills just ghostface and Biggie the only one real MC's... go spend your money on snapples...
