The natural temptation when remixing an Andrew Reynolds part is to utilize a song built around a “Boss” motif. When you deliberately limit your choices to rap songs, it seems like it shouldn’t be too hard, granted that rappers often enjoy referring to themselves as “the boss” of various entrepreneurial pursuits. Somehow, Rick Ross and that “Lonely Island” Saturday Night Live guy have monopolized on all known “Boss” songs, and we’re not going to sit there editing to either one. The next option was to look for figurative representations of rap’s beloved “Boss” figure, which is when we remembered the Ice Cream Man.
Much like Sole Tech’s neglect of the Cash Money catalog, they have a similar sentiment for another late-nineties southern rap dynasty, the No Limit Soldiers. That is why the following clip is brought to you by Quartersnacks and the good folks over at No Limit Records.

(We can only hope that Emerica will release another inspiring B-sides segment, so we could make a Suave House edition, and complete the late-nineties southern rap label remix trilogy.)

This initially started out as a stupid Twitter joke, but after several people requested that it become a reality, we made it happen. After all, it’s only about two-and-a-half minutes of footage once you condense the whole eight-minute Herman Stay Gold B-Sides segment, so it wasn’t the lengthiest of tasks.
Emerica seems to have an extensive (and unfortunate) aversion to using songs that are a part of the Cash Money Records catalog, so we made this to try and fabricate an alternate reality where they embrace music made under Baby and Slim’s financial supervision. Like everything else we have tried to edit in the past four months, the first audio file to be on the timeline was Young Chris’ masterpiece, “Racks on Racks on Racks” (or simply “Racks” for short, but it’s less satisfying saying it just one time), but that song has proven itself immensely difficult to edit skateboarding to. Hopefully we figure it out before the much unanticipated Quartersnacks “Beginning of Summer / Memorial Day Weekend” clip.
Have a good weekend. Follow Quartersnacks on Twitter, ask us to re-edit more stuff to semi-obscure Cash Money songs, and maybe your dream will come true.
