Firth, it's working technically, I'm not sure if a rapper can hold such track from start to end :1undecided:

I think I'm liking this more than SMASH. The energy pairing is top-notch. This is one of those rap mashups that doesn't leave one feeling like, "Oh, he just slapped a rap on top of that 'mental." The timing is crisp, and the music feeds the message. However, I have to agree with SMASH that there may be too much rapping in this song. Perhaps if you had a third source 'pella for the choruses (or even used the Survivor chorus) it would break up the repetition enough to make this great. It's definitely well-produced, as one would expect from you.

Ya agree with both Smash and Satis5d that if you add in the chorus for Eye of the Tiger, then it will be an extremely awesome mashup. I will totally listen to this mashup while I workout!!! Excellent work man!!!

Yup. The vocal pairing is excellent. The mash just needs something extra to carry Kanye that way he's always has a strong entrance during the verse.

Thanks guys, and thanks for the compliment Satis5d :1grin:

Only problem is it requires adapting the instrumental to fit and I've almost lost energy for this particular mash :1undecided: anyone here use Ableton Live and wanna collab with it to add in more or original vocals to get this up to FP quality? :1smiley:
