In regards to Remix vs. Mash-up I think this is a matter of opinion. (To me) in the simplest form a remix is a song with A) A new instrumental B) New lyrics/guests or C) both A and B. A Mash-up in it's simplest form is two songs (or more) put together in one song. I could have made "Faint Britney" and made an intirely new instrumental but kept the Faint strings. That's still a mash-up. It's still two songs put together. So I think Mike making a new drum beat doesn't disqualify CC and put it in the Remix realm like Reanimation. And where the hell are all these fans getting "match-up" from? In regards to Jay-Z vs LP's Ethics I know it all looks bad for people who look up to LP as role-models. But the fact is, they said yes to Jay-Z and not the other way around. Yes Jay-Z sometimes dehumanizes women. But you have to understand that's the lifestyle he's lived. No lies from him. He's never had a job in his life. He's hustled on the streets selling drugs. When you get a little street paper people notice and you might get girls. And their are prostitutes and pimps out there so I'm not offended by it just because Jay-Z made a song about it. At least he's a rapper and not a real pimp. Plus that's like 5% of his actual CD content. He has some insightful songs like "Song Cry" and "Moment of Clarity". Chester did drugs. Would you be mad if he made a song telling the truth about everything he's done? Yes LP doesn't curse but they curse like hell live. People say it's not the same but YES it is! It's still how you represent yourself, on or off stage, in or out of the studio. Linkin Park could have came on the scene with curses in their CD and I bet it wouldn't have hurt them that much. I just don't get why people trip so much. Eminem has had MUCH more controversy around him and he'd be the "lesser of two evils" between himself and Jay-Z. So I don't see how you'd like him on a CD more than Jay. Because Jay talks about pimping women but Eminem talks about killing his wife? Yeah, that makes sense. LP will do what they want, when they want. I think it's more WB projected the "goody rock boys" persona more than LP. You can not do somehing and love someone else who does. I can not want to kill my girlfriend and love that Eminem does it. Or listen to a song about pimping and bounce to the beat. People just need to calm down. And for one last time. It's MASH-UP people!!!
