Originally released in 1995.
Although the barcode and the cat# are the same, there are differences between this repress to the original pressing:
- The sticker on the sleeve is of bigger size
- The sticker is just rectangular instead of square
- There is a EastWest logo next to the cat# on the sticker
- There is no barcode printed on the center labels
- It has been manufactured by Elektra Entertainment and not by Atlantic Recording Corp.
- "Real Hip Hop" on sticker written in different styles (On repress it's more angled).

The images show the official repress.
The first pressing comes with a bigger sticker with different proportions.
Except for the different size probably the safest way to distinguish: There is a round EastWest label logo on the sticker next to the catalognumber on the repress.
You won't find it on the first pressing.

This is the second time rap's two heavy-weight producers, at the top of their game, have both done mixes on the same 12" (the first being Jeru Tha Damaja's You Can't Stop The Prophet). On any other day, Premo's version would have gone down as a classic, but Pete Rock (just as he did on the Jeru tune) blows him out the water with a firing mix which ends up being the best thing Das EFX ever did!
