The Remake of a Remake

Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - You're All I Need To Get By

A classic to many soul music lovers this is the original version released in 1968.

Method Man & Mary J Blige - You're All I Need

In 1995, Meth & Mary J, re-released the classic that has carved it's name in the hearts of many hip hop heads. This song is full of memories and emotions. I enjoy it more than the original and that is a very bold statement.

Wale & Tawiah - The Remake of a Remake (All I Need)

In 2008 a new face emerges in the hip hop world, and he goes by the name of Wale. He released an incredible mixtape titled, The Mixtape About Nothing, that was inspired by Seinfeld, the series. The mixtape samples comprehensively from Seinfeld, and Wale delivers his verses with frequent references to jokes from the series. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the character Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, appears on the mixtape. This song was my favourite on the mixtape, it's a great ode that mixes both classics into one.
