Mama's Paradise (Coolio vs. Nicki Minaj)

This one is dedicated to the prolific, terrific, specific...CVS. :1kiss:

(Coolio vs. David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj)

Coolio - Gangsta's Paradise [instrumental]
David Guetta feat. Nicki Minaj - Hey Mama [acapella]

The more that I listen to this, the less I'm sure that it's in key. These hip-hop instrumentals... :1rolleyes:

About 23 girls go delirious
'cause my mixing is mysterious
some people call me devious
but I'm plain and simple C.V.S. ! :1wink:

I make the tight beats go loose
give happy songs a shot of blues
and with the combo-keys I choose
nobody dares to be in my shoes !! :1rolleyes:

Thanks for the tribute, and I really appreciate the coverart.
And on a prolific note: I am working on Gangsta's Paradise with (or without?) Eminem.
But have too many projects going on @Mashstix to publish yet.

on your mashup
I like the stutter-edits e.g. 1:22 (there is also a very short one about 0:17)
Nicky sounds a bit 'nasal' on my headphones, a bit 'dry' (reverb wise) perhaps.
Like the original BV at 1:00
The backing choir from 2:45 is a bit much, maybe there are needed only from 3:33 onwards, by reusing an earlier part ? (but this could get you a 'repetitive' remark from Smash haha).
Great work, and maybe a good idea for a future mashoff: make a mashup in the style/trademarks/repertoire of another mashstixer. Like a parody or hommage.

Yeah, the instrumental is in C minor (sample/cover of Pastime Paradise) and the vocals sound like they are in E♭ minor. They work for a long time in the verse because Nicki only sings one note (E♭) up until the chorus. Sorry to deliver the bad news, pal :1cry:

I like it despite being OOK.
