Promo-only remix version! If you ever seen the video of this track, then maybe you noticed the video version is slightly different from the LP version. There's some added horns, an extra verse at the beginning, longer outro and it's mixed in a slightly different way. This remix version is much better than the LP version IMO. Almost like Big Daddy Kane's "Ain't no half steppin - remix", but not as rare.

Run-out groove has:
side A: "PRO-A1-3144-SHI Q B-31557-SHI 20950 1-1"
side B: "PRO-A2-3144-SHI Q B-31558-SHI 20950-X" 1-1"
There also the "f/w" signature on both sides.

Catalog Number: NS 42
Made in: USA

Added into database: Jul 20, 2005

Limited white label-only release made by Columbia on the hush-hush tip. Mainly for distribution on the Japanese market, but some copies reached European distributors, as it was available in my local record store for a week or two. Just to disappear and never to be seen again. This is pure dopeness right here! First you get the original demo version of "Represent", which is completely different form the LP version. Then you get two different unreleased remixes of "Life's a bitch" by Buckwild, if I'm not mistaken. And to top it of, you get an unreleased track called "Understanding" which is AMAZING!! For some reason Columbia never included this track on the"illmatic" LP (sample problems maybe??). Definitely one of my all-time favorite NAS tracks (it also have Biz Markie and AZ on the intro).

There's also bonus beats for all tracks (except "Represent"). As if all that wasn't enough you also get the nice Large Professor remix of "It ain't hard to tell".

Run-out groove has:
"NS-42A/B" on each side respectively. A-side also has the "F/W RCE" signature, which means it was manufactured at Frankford Wayne and that it's not a bootleg.
