*Shakes head* This gives me a really BAD feelin’… all day long.
You don’t know who the hell I am, but I know you. You’re the one who’s kinda like T-Pain, who also sucks. You don’t do things as ridiculous as wearin’ a big-ass chain that actually says “Big Ass Chain”, but I have noticed that you’re a fat nigga that wears undersized clothes. You call yourself the “Radio Killa”, and you’ve definitely contributed to killin’ my desire to listen to the radio. I also don’t like the fact that a couple people say I look like you, or that you have a hyphen in your name. But scratch all that- that’s neither here nor there. I would like to talk to youuuuuuuu… about this new shit you put out to the world earlier today.
NOW… I didn’t say nothin’ when Wyclef n’nem fukked up “We Are The World” earlier this year (at least it was for a good cause). I didn’t even complain about Usher and Polow Da Don usin’ one of Stevie Wonder‘s greatest songs ever to sing some shit about lookin’ for chicks to pull off threesomes. I was thisclose, but said nothin’ about Jermaine Dupri remaking Quincy’s “Secret Garden” and throwin’ a got-damn So So Def Bass All-Stars beat on it. I don’t wanna be like our parents used to be, mad as hell every time the hits of our generation jacked some shit they grew up on. But the buck gotta stop somewhere.
As much as I dislike your own songs, I didn’t think it could get much worse, but it has. I don’t know whether to blame you or the people that cleared this to happen… but you just went and remade Aaliyah‘s “One In A Million”. And in case no one around you has said so (and why would they), it sucks. SUCKS.
I was actually lookin’ forward to the day new artists remade classic ’90s hits. But now, if this is a sign of what’s to come? Not so much. One day, it’s just you with this piece of shit. Next, it’ll be Omarion doin’ “Let’s Chill”, or Lloyd puttin’ his lil’ ladylike voice all over “Forever My Lady”. I mean, if someone can redo a classic and make it good, that’d be great. But you know this shit right here is wrong, Dream… or The, or however you prefer to be addressed.
Ah well, damn it to hell- you’re The-Dream and I’m just a lowly blogger whose opinion should mean nothin’ to you. It ain’t like I was gonna buy your album before, and then this changed my mind or somethin’. Besides, even Aaliyah herself stepped on Marvin Gaye‘s shit before, and that was bad too. I suppose that in your own determined way, you wanted to “pay homage” to a song of the past that you love. But then again, so do people who sing at karaoke bars, and you don’t see them puttin’ it out. ‘Sall I’m sayin’.
Peace be unto you, The-Dream. Since the young folk don’t seem to mind your overly repetitious songwriting, you’ve got a bright future ahead of you. But homie… don’t do no shit like this again.
