Luniz ft. Michael Marshall, Dru Down, E-40, Richie Rich, Shock G & Spice 1 - I Got 5 On It (Remix) (dailymotion.com)
The remix to the song, which can be found on the CD single known as the "Bay Ballas Remix", features an extensive list of artists from the Bay Area including original collaborator Michael Marshall on the chorus, Dru Down, E-40, Richie Rich, Shock G, and Spice 1. Later remixes attempt to modify the original meaning. In Dru Down's verse he states the "5" can refer to either $500 or a Mercedes-Benz 500E for the particularly wealthy, while Numskull suggests the practice can also be used to assist in paying for alcoholic beverages such as Hennessy, Seagrams or malt liquor. Others suggest the more likely interpretation, that the "5" refers to half a "bag" of Marihuana, since usually a sack is priced at $10. It can be argued, that this analogy is used to reflect the financial situation of those, the rappers affiliate(d) themselves with.

The song samples Club Nouveau's "Why You Treat Me So Bad" (1987), Kool and the Gang's "Jungle Boogie" (1973) and Audio Two's "Top Billin'" (1987). There have also been several unofficial drum 'n bass remixes of this track.
