1. Supercat feat. The Notorious B.I.G. (and Puff Daddy and Third Eye), “Dolly My Baby (Remix)”

With all due respect to Big Daddy Kane, before Christopher Wallace dancehall was the dominant sound in Brooklyn, with hip-hop a pretty distant second. Though not quite a hitโ€”blame Diddy and 3rd Eye’s Onyx-lite impressionโ€””Dolly My Baby” is a passing-of-the-torch type moment (Not to mention the original source of Biggie’s “Big Poppa” moniker). Just as Biggie’s appearance on Mary J’s “Real Love” remix helped primed the clubs for his imminent takeover, the co-sign from the BK-residing Don Dada helped solidify the newcomer’s street appeal.
