Mary J. Blige: Be Happy (Remixes) (White Label VLS) (Zoopyaka Records, 1994)

Exclusive hip hop remixes of Mary's signature song and pressed to white label vinyl in 1994. At a first glance, all  appear to be unheard of but unfortunately only track A1 is an exclusive. The "Cheif Rocka Mix" is actually the Ron GH & R Funk Remix and B2 is Sean Combs' Butta Mix. Both are named after the samples they incorporate. However, I am unsure of the hip hop instrumental used in track A1 (the only remix exclusive to this release.) Mega-rare!

A1 Most Bootiful Mix
B1 Chief Rocka Mix feat Greg Nice
B2 Dollar Bill Mix feat Keith Murray
