Mike Dreams Mike Dreams - “They Spun the Web”

Rihanna Rihanna - “Love the Way You Lie (Pt. 2)”

“On paper, a lot of these "Part 2" ideas may sound like not such a great thing to do. Sometimes people find it corny, or desperate that an artist tries to ride the buzz of an existing song they were initially featured on, by remaking it as a solo endeavor to help promote them. In all of the cases where this has happened in the past year (With Alicia's "Empire State of Mind", Chrisette Michele's "Aston Martin Music" and now this), it's been INCREDIBLE. The execution of the actual idea turned out to work just fine. This raised the stock of the song in my opinion. I love how it comes in and builds up acoustically, and then fleshes out. Eminem did his thing lyrically and energy-wise, as always. The ONLY thing I would even have to say that would be quasi-negative about this is the fact that I was hoping Em would have delivered a calmer verse. It seemed like he was at first, but then reverted back. It's not like I don't like angry Eminem verses. Those are the best kind. But it wasn't until he did it again on this remake that I realized he did it on all 3 verses of the original, which was fine, but it would have been nice for a variation. But yeah, this is a go. I wouldn't mind hearing this version receive heavy radio rotation as well; even though some people might be tired of the song as a whole and this chorus. But hey, good is good... LOUD is sounding like it's going to be a great album...”

Fall for Your Type Promo Photo Jamie Foxx - “Fall for Your Type”

“Hey Z, you know this was originally sung fully by Drake right? The consensus from most people is that his "reference" version is much better than this... I think this version is just fine, though I did like the original Drake version better. I would have selected that to replace either of the R&B songs on "Thank Me Later".”

Kanye West Kanye West - “G.O.O.D. Music Cypher”

“I'm type baffled by anyone who says Common didn't deliver here. I think it's the fact that sometimes we already feel like we gotta point out who was the least best, but I don't think that exists here. G.O.O.D Music is just exactly what the name implies. Everyone killed it. Big Sean sounds like FF1 and FF2 Sean again, CyHi Da Prynce has rose up on my radar in the past two weeks faster than any other new rapper in my recent memory. He's just been on a roll and hasn't disappointed yet. But let's not give Common that shaft like that. I'm not saying give him a pass because he's a veteran; I'm saying he doesn't need a pass at all, because he genuinely smashed this. Fam, fam, fam, he's a monster too... "I recognize game like the Espys, cold to myself, I say God Bless me..." "The name is Common, but the frame is special..." "The body of the black party from Farley to Bob Marley, go home or go hard, and home is like hardly..."”

Drake Drake - “Fancy (Remix)”

“I have to disagree Z. I feel that Drake's performance at the VMAs was one of the best. I didn't think so at first, but after watching it again, it was definitely a monumental performance. Mary is such a legend and seeing her perform just got me excited for her music again; so much so that I dedicated about a week to listening to her full discography. The VMAs were overall boring and I think this performance was one of the few exciting moments of the night aside from Kanye's performance; which wasn't uber-impressive either. I'd almost say that I like this version better than the album one...”
