Hip-hop has always shown love for Mariah Carey. One of the biggest artists on the planet, the singer has had multiple No. 1 albums, multiple platinum-selling singles, a voice that comes once in a lifetime and a strong connection to the genre. The pop icon has been in the music industry for over 20 years and has had over 40 songs land on the Billboard Hot 100, including those with some of the game’s biggest rappers. To say that Carey is a megastar is an understatement.

Around the late 1990s, she made a bold move by tapping Ol’ Dirty Bastard for the remix to her double platinum track “Fantasy.” Cory Rooney, an A&R rep that helped put the song together, recently described ODB’s specific demands before he would start recording the song.

“He finally came out and was like, ‘Yo, pardon me, this bitch is driving me crazy. I need some Moet and Newports before we get into this record,” Rooney recalls. “I said, ‘It’s 12:30 at night now, bro. I don’t know where we’re going to get Moet from.’ He started yelling at the assistants, calling them White devils, saying, ‘You white devils, y’all don’t want Black people to have shit.’ They went out for like an hour, and the only thing they could find were some Heinekens. He was so disgusted, he threw a bottle on the floor.”

Despite all the drama in the studio, Carey and ODB walked away with a winning track. The five-octave queen went on to make some of the most memorable hip-hop collaborations in music history. She’s worked with Gucci Mane, Busta Rhymes, Jay Z, Jadakiss, Nas and so much more.
