In today's Hip-Hop climate, the remix has become nothing more than the original track with new features tagged on. Therefore, rappers should make their second go around all the more memorable if they're going to force feed fans basically the same meal twice.
Unfortunately, we know that isn't the case. In all actuality, some of these remixes are abysmal; others were doomed from the start, because the original record wasn't all that live to being with. In any case, consider this to be a wake up call to those we feel have committed audible crimes with their second efforts.
And this isn't to say that these artists are bad —they just made a bad decision.
We deemed a few remixes as summer anthem candidates weeks ago. Ironically, some of these same songs saw their hoop dreams deflate like a true fiend's weight.
