Dupri Remixes Maxwell

maxwell-321660.jpgConcluding my DITC marathon is this remix of Maxwell's "Lifetime" by Jermaine Dupri. This was commercially released as part of the maxi-single so I didn't have to dig that deep. Thing is, it's been about seven years already and I'm hurting for material. That's right, seven... whole... years since NOW, which at this point should be titled THEN. But this is definitely one of those cases where I'll freely lay blame on the label. I mean, how could it be Maxwell's fault? He's perfect!

While certainly not the best remix of "Lifetime" (that honor would go to the "Tim and Jez" mix), Dupri gives it his all. There are no intrusive ad-libs to be found or cameos from Da Brat and Bow Wow. And is it just me, or does this tread awfully close to "I Get Lonely"? You be the judge.

As a bonus I've included the aforementioned Tim and Jez mix, the one that got plenty of burn on Quiet Storm radio in my neck of the woods. This is some romantic sh*t.

Again-- Seven. Whole. Years.

    You are so right, that Tim & Jez Remix is one of the best and just about the only time you can hear Maxwell's voice and a woman's voice on the same song.

    nOva! NOVA! Boy, you hear me! People have asked nicely over the past few days for the hook-up on these remixes, and I see you still haven't stepped up to the plate.
    What, do you want us to be like the crackhead from Menace II Society and offer you a greasy bag of cheeseburgers that you don't know from whence they came? Or, if we get truly desperate, go with the crackhead's second offering and get shot-up in the process(maybe the fish anyway, but I digress)? I'mo aks one mo' 'gin for those remixes? What kinda cheese you like on your cheeseburgers, just in case...?
    Oh, the Tim & Jez Remix gets my vote for being da besss!
