From the website:

“R&B artist Akon recorded ‘Ghetto’ which was released on his debut album, Trouble, in 2004. An amazing music video for the song, filmed in New Jersey, New Mexico, and at the Navajo Nation in Arizona, was seen on MTV2 and BET. The song began to generate more buzz when a remix surfaced on the radio featuring none other than Biggie Smalls and 2Pac. Miles Solay and Koba recorded their remix and sam-pled from the Bob Avakian REVOLUTION DVD.
