Black Music Month Spotlight: Stevie J
“The Things You Do [Bad Boy Remix]” By Gina Thompson feat. Missy Elliott
The original isn’t bad, but the remix is the most well-known version. The remix was bumpin’ beat wise, and it was one of the first times we had the chance to hear Missy do her now trademark “Hee Hee Hee Hee Haw” line. You can thank Stevie for that, because the co-producer on the track reportedly encouraged a then-“Puff Daddy” to let Missy rap on the song. It peaked at #3 on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music charts.
