Taken from the

"This is a RAP NERD VOLTRON in full effect, duns amd dun-ettes. The entire T.R.O.Y. regular staff (Admiral, Blockhead, Philaflava, Roy Johnson, Schenactady Fan, Thun, ThomasV, Verge) put our heads together to come up with a list of Fifty Remixes that YOU need to hear as soon as humanly possible! Take note that this is not a list of the "best" remixes ever (though many are contenders) or even our very "favorites," (though some qualify) but simply a list of fifty great remixes (interpreted somewhat loosely to include songs that are essentially remakes or sequels) that we think you'll enjoy. We tried to leave out extremely obvious picks ("Scenario" 7 MCs Remix, "I Got'Cha Opin", and the like) but we also kept the list fairly accessible and mostly confined to crews that were signed and put out actual albums. We'll be bringing you ten picks every morning this week, so join the T.R.O.Y. Movement and spread the word via Twitter, Facebook, Digg, the message boards and blogs you frequent, text messages, and what have you. Enjoy, and be sure to leave some (hopefully not hateful) feedback."

Was Special Ed's "Freaky Flow (DJ Premier Remix)" in the discussion? How about Blahzay Blahzay's "Danger Pt. II"?

either way, that's a very nice list
