Chris Brown ft. Drake, T.I., Kanye West, Fabolous, & André 3000 - Deuces (Remix)
Chris who? Let’s not fool ourselves, this isn’t Chris Brown’s song anymore (or Tyga‘s for that matter). When the lineup for Deuces’ remix was announced, it became the star-studded guest’s show. Produced by K-Mack, the minimalistic beat allows the emcees to go to work, and work they do. Drake begins the cut and lulls the listener in on the first verse – “You feel like you miss those happy days / Well girl that makes two of us “ while T.I. shifts the tempo with the change of the instrumental and his flow – “To see her/ In that 2-seater/ No, that’s goin’ hurt your feelings boo.” Kanye West then comes along and lays down some braggadocious lines- “You gon’ be hot a little while/ I’ma be rich forever” - and Fabolous complements the mellow vibe with his relaxed punch lines – “C’mon that’s old news / Yesterday’s paper.” However, the most anticipated verse is saved for last; Andre 3000, and it’s safe to say he doesn’t disappoint – “Chase cabooses till the track’s gone/ I gotta find me a new locomotive, stop ‘makin sad songs.” So the only real question is, dear DJBoothers, who said peace the best?
