        The best thing with this release is that the remix is a remix in the sense of the remixer, L Double, making a new track with it.
        Whereas a lot of records with an original and a remix on each side just give you edited tracks made harder, having changed structure or having made the track more atmospheric, this record gives you 2 tracks both worth playing out loud.
        the original of Gangsta is the "harder" on this one though, because that difference is existing.
        i heard before that this was the first version of Original Nuttah but i'm not sure if that's something sure.
        the drums do sound like original nuttah, but there's a different mc on this track, being MC Gunsmoke.
        "who's Gunsmoke", "I'm Gunsmoke, and wot?" - gunshots.
        The remix seems to be build on another break, which make the track more enjoyable in my opinion.
        I don't like to refer to a track as "a dancefloor track" or to say that a track is ment to listen at home, music is created so that people can enjoy it, but Gnagsta 2 will definatly be the one to lay back with.
        the track uses Reggae samples and the way the vocals seem to be different from the first version you actually feel sorry for Gunsmoke singing "always wanted to be a gangster", as if you know it's not good to give a child everything they want but you can't look it in the eyes either because it will start to cry so you give them what they want.
        One Record, One Remix, Two Classics.
