Superstar remix

Here is a pretty great remix of the Lupe Fiasco song "Superstar" on which Young Jeezy, Lupe and T.I. all have good verses:

I love Jeezy rhyming "Honda Accord" with "Honda Accord." And his verse also contains a Wire reference!

Jeezy and TI really outshine Lupe on this one methinks.

As much as I love Lupe, he has a fatal weakness in choruses/hooks. When he does manage to scramble something remotely listenable together, I feel like it's only because Pharrell was turning the knobs. This song is a perfect example: what a "blah" thrown together melodic motif.

Think about it, "I Gotcha" is perhaps his most memorable chorus/hook, and it really only stands out because it is saturated in that Neptunes sense of humor and analog minimalism.

Still got nothin but love for the Fiasco.

this past weekend i heard "go-go-gadget flow" blow up at an ann arbor dive bar, and the place went nuts. was it the hook, i wonder, or the fact that it was a city in the midwest? either way, it was fresh.
