"1, 2 Pass It" is a collaboration song by the one-shot The D&D All-Stars, a group consisting of Doug E. Fresh, Fat Joe, Jeru the Damaja, KRS-One, Mad Lion, and Smif-N-Wessun. Produced by DJ Premier, it is the only single from the album The D&D Project. Each emcee gets his own verse, excluding Tek and Steele of Smif-N-Wessun, who share a verse. Lyrics from Fat Joe's verse were later sampled and used in the chorus of Jay-Z's "Bring It On", and Pharoahe Monch's Intro of his album Internal Affairs. A Line from Smif-N-Wessun's verse was used on the chorus of Jay-Z's "So Ghetto," produced by DJ Premier. A line from Jeru's verse was later used on his own song "Scientifical Madness".
