Twitter beef is such nonsense. It’s like that guy that stands behind security cursing you out and telling the guard to let him go – and the guard isn’t even holding him. Stop. Just stop. The-Dream and The Weeknd? Stop.
The-Dream complaining about anyone stealing his style is funny considering he learned everything he knows from Prince except how to dress, thank goodness. Terius in some purple chaps is not a nice thought.
The Weeknd speaking up when no one addressed him by name is telling in that hit dog will holler kind of way. He tried to get billy bad ass in his tweets though, calling Mr. Nash a hamburgler look alike and suggesting Dream wasn’t smart enough to figure out his name. (That missing e can be baffling.) I wonder how all these tweets would sound spoken in an extra high falsetto. Not so bad ass. This is worse than Drake and Common.
Now, back to the business at hand. This week has seen plenty of rehashed sounds spread over the internet. We have remixes, freestyles, mash-ups and covers in the pipeline so let’s get it started. Word to MC Hammer.
First up is Terry Urban who thought it would be cool to mash up Born To Die and Ready To Die. Lana Del Ray and Biggie? I can dig it. It’s not the best mash up ever, but it doesn’t suck. Below is the product of “Born To Die” and “The What” called “FTW.”
Next we have Sleigh Bells covering Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable.” The problem here is they didn’t spin this song at all. They just performed it as close to the original sound and spirit as possible. Alexis Krauss doesn’t have the pipes Bey has and there’s no noise or cool guitar work or anything. I don’t like this, but you may. Listen anyway.
Moving on we have Machine Gun Kelly’s Remix of “Wild Boy” with one of the most odd groupings of emcees I’ve seen. I’m not going to list them all, but know that I will never ever be sold on 2 Chainz.
Call me 2 Chainz, eat your girl, wear my necklace, call it food chain
The next song we have is Rick Ross, Wale and Stalley taking over Fat Joe and Chris Browns collaboration, Another Round. These songs tend to be short on love and long on sex and this freestyle is no different. And the only thing better than Rick Ross offering to eat a woman like she’s breakfast is watching Rick Ross attempt to eat himself likes he’s breakfast. Funny stuff.
Last up is Alyson Greenfield with her take on LL Cool J’s “Moma Said Knock You Out.” This sounds absolutely nothing like the original. I hear way more Tori Amos in this girl than I do Todd Smith. It’s umm… interesting. Enjoy.
