Disappointingly, the vast majority of hip-hop "remixes" these days consist of rappers dropping bars over already-existing instrumentals. No matter how many people hopped on Bobby Shmurda's "Hot Nigga," no MCs or producers even tweaked Jahlil's beat a bit. Part of that speaks to the awesome quality of the instrumental, but mostly, it's just lazy. There's always a place for freestyles over hot tracks, but we need more remixes like Rich The Kid's new one of Drake's "All Me."
Titled "STFU," his version features a loop of Big Sean saying "hoe, shut the fuck up" and an entirely new beat. Way to be imaginative, RTK!
Why the bitch keep talkin' while the young nigga countin'
Shut the fuck up and look at these diamonds
Due to the fact that I'm rich
She opened her mouth and inserted my dick
