Creme: Let Me Take Over (CDM) (Black Rain Entertainment, 1998)

Produced by Full Force, the one and only single from R&B trio Creme and released on the down low in 1998. It's pure hip hop, before the "new millennium" era of producers came along capable of churning out  pop hits for the likes of Britney Spears, N'Sync and other absolute horrors. The sample is borrowed from Raekwon's 1995 song Ice Cream and the person singing lead is actually Mashonda Tifrere, best known for her solo work in the early 2000s and for her relationship with Swizz Beatz. Sadly I don't know how popular it ever was but the group never released an album.

Album Version 4:00
Foreful Remix (ft. D.J. ACE) 4:35
The Drama & More Mix 4:22
Instrumental 3:56
