This Means War!! cover This Means War!! by Ozzy Osbourne, Busta Rhymes

This makes me think of one, single thing. That Busta Rhymes could be the hip hop side of Black Sabbath, crazy as it sounds but true if you compare their content with his content. This is a hell of sampling though and matching of artists of irrelevant scenes! Thumbs up!

Do It to Death cover Do It to Death by Busta Rhymes

I think this "what we gon' do?Do it to death" is more like an existential question, what we're gonna do in our life, so response to this is to live it, to the extremes, till death comes. There is not any further hidden meaning in all this, so we shouldn't try to demystify life and waste our time . This is why common scenes of everyday life are described in the rest of the song.

She Bad Bad cover She Bad Bad by Eve

Straight out of her latest album, this one proved that her music and style are only getting better and that Eve will never adjust to any current hip hop tendency and absorb the latest fashions, she will keep it real. Always fantastic, always respectful!

Bring The Pain cover Bring The Pain by Method Man

Coming out of - probably - his best solo album, the debut one, this track is an excellent sample of his whole work. Genuine and creative content as always, unique voice and flow, tough truths in almost each rhyme. Appreciated in large, generous amounts!

Release Yo'delf cover Release Yo'delf by Method Man

Method Man always has a separate place in my heart and brains, mainly of his flow and rhymes, both amazing. Play this loud and you will get what the intro is about and why it's so true in large quantities.

I've Never Seen... cover I've Never Seen... by RZA ft. Xavier Naidoo

Another great song by RZA, referring to what he's speaking of in the intro - love. Simple lyrics but true, great collaboration with Xavier Naidoo and a chilling tempo that fits both voices. All together gives me this warm feeling in my heart while praising the beauty of love.

Clean Up cover Clean Up by Danny Brown

Not a regular drug-related hip hop song. Fortunately there is Danny speaking about the other side of the things than only praising the hours he's spending being high. True words by a real artist, where he started from, how he's holding on but also acknowledging that he can't go back to the starting point because of any kind of habit. Once more, well done.

The Return cover The Return by Freddie Gibbs, Danny Brown

Sampling in this one is just excellent, prodigious. In combination with Danny Brown's rhyming and of course Freddie's is a hell of a result. It's so fulfilling that the old hip hop sound is recovering with artists such as these.

Beautiful Monster cover Beautiful Monster by Ne‐Yo

I couldn't say that this one of my favorite songs of Ne-Yo, maybe it's a bit more of a dance song than my taste can understand, but still a song good to be played loud while being out. It's amazing though how once more the woman he likes is presented like a super-creature, full of power, cruel at times but someone to fall in love with after all.

Why Does She Stay cover Why Does She Stay by Ne‐Yo

Well, sounds like a reasonable question but on the other hand love is not something to explain using your logic. It's not only about a list of things to do every day, like washing the dishes and cleaning the flat. I think it's more than sharing this part of life - with this included though! I'm giving him a credit though for facing the fact that he's a bit lazy!
