‘Good Times’ Track

‘Good Times’ was Style’s first single on the debut album, A Gangster and a Gentleman. It was released on 11th August 2002 and debuted at number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100.  The track was a huge success on the radio; it even appeared on the Soul Plane soundtrack.

This will be the third time the hit track has been remixed. The first time, Method Man and Redman jumped in on the track. The second remix included guest appearances from Method Man, Redman, and Jin from Ruff Ryders.

Styles P Holds a Concert in New York

The Yonkers-bred rapper kicked off the ‘Good Times’ 20th anniversary with a concert in New York City, his hometown. The celebration was held at New York’s Irving Plaza, where Styles performed with his LOX family- Jadakiss and Sheek Louch. Other artists who performed were Nems, Havoc, Smoke DZA, and Statik Selektah, to name a few.

‘Good Times’ was dedicated to Style’s weed use, but he recently argued that the Marijuana policy is racist, corrupt, and needs to be amended.
