mixes are pretty hard to make. the thing that got annoying to me was the intro with the constant echoing of dre/snoop. the thing with this is you'd have to either change the speed of the beat, or the speed of mike's vocals to make a perfect match. mike's off beat throughout. it's a good attempt though. when i do my mixes i use acid, and i use audacity to change the speed of an acapella w/o messing w/ the pitch so the vocalist doesn't sound like a mouse or someone with a real deep voice. another problem mixing these two is that holly brook the singer, her key isn't the same one that dre uses in this beat. that presents another problem. i think even if on beat, the match would be a little weird.

1st of all , thx a lot for all the time you give to what i've done !!
i want to tell u , i didnt use Echoing in the intro , its a Delay , why a delay ?? coz the acapella of still DRE was bad , i mean the quality , so i tried my best to use Filter , and other stuff to make it better , and i used the Delay to hide some prob in them !!!
abt the beat that DRE made , for sur its not for Mike Shinoda voice , we use Mixes just to break that silence ,to try to bring somthin funy that's all !!!
yes i didnt make the mix as perfect as it needs, but the most important is the idea , if u have the idea , you can go trough to make it ,and try your best to make it looks great !!

if you have time , try to mix the same what i did :blush: may be you are pro that me , and i will be happy that give me a good lessons :blush:

thx again for the time to gived to my mix.

I have to say, I love both songs a lot...and was hoping it would match, but they do not at all, I couldn't even listen to the whole thing cause the vocals were off. Nice attempt though.

Thx a lot for your last Words :D " Nice attempt though ", at least gives me some hoppe to try to do better ... i will try to edit something !!
but im thinking that " Remember The Name " will match better than " Where'd you go " with instrumental of " Still DRE " .... i will try and i'll see what it will done.

Remember The Name may blend better, definitely try that.

Also, something I noticed you did..is that you tried to re layer snoop and dre's vocals over their own song, instead of sampling the original bits. There's no need to do that, what you should do is sample the original parts where snoop and dre were and blend them into the remixed/instrumental parts so that the transition is flawless. It's a cheap way to do it but a good trick.
