I am not usually the one to hate but for real ‘ without those horns and all that shit that beat sucks. i always thought it sucked even BEFORE i knew who made it.It does have a clever pop sound I like if you listen closely.PUT Jay z and jeezy on a track it will blow reguardless . Listen to the drums before they layer this track .Thy sound like shit.IM SURPRISED jeezy paid for that shit.I guess its all who you know.

even with the beat fully finished it sounds pretty bad to me. It sounds like something that didnt make destiny childs first album. You know back when they had four girls and they were rollin with wyclef.

I dont mean to sound harsh but this beat sounds like a beginner just messing around with a keyboard/program he just got. lol.

Tony Traxx – You’re about the best vocalization of the opinion.

Tony traxx- Like your really one to talk, i checked your beats out of curiosity and these guys make way better music(both of you make synthesize noise at the end of the day) but you went in too hard on them. Why You Mad? because they working with Young JEEZY, and your working with some guy called Young BREEZY?…..i rest my case.

The beat isn’t all that. but I love how they broke down the process behind it’s creation on screen…

As someone who also uses Logic, it’s interesting to see how other people use it and the instruments etc that they use within it.

i am a working producer who has placed real records and take my word its not about cold beatz its all about whole records. most of these artists suck and u have to give them a whole song that works 4 them or u will not make money. as 4 this particular record along with many others are not great compositions but the deliver the message so thats sum advice 4 all u beat makers u gotta make a beat thaat will make a good song (hook and verse included) 4 who ever u are shopping 2. much respect to all the guys that give us insight to the life of real producers thru youtube

THE REASON IT SOUNDS INCOMPLETE IS BECAUSE THEY STOLE SOME UNFINISHED WORK AND PUT THEIR BULLSHIT TOUCH ON IT, THIS BEAT WAS STOLEN AND THE TRUTH WILL BE IN THE LIGHT SOON ENOUGH!!!!!

There is nothing like taking something as historic and inspirational as having the first black president and making a song with some nice crunk hi hats in it. Why not let little john rap the star spangled banner at the inauguration.

Or maybe Obama could get clue to do some drops for the next radio address. (Sarcasm)

I cant hate on the producers but please. Honor Obamas achievement with some respect and lets do what we can to create some positive images for the community.

@GNX Music

I agree wholeheartedly… the vocals and concept of the song are completely embarrassing.

not to hate or nething but the beat is not that great. It makes me feel a little better knowing my beats are good enough for the big boys though.

I did remake that beat (On Fl Studio 7 XXL) and I just noticed it wasnt that hard to create. I spent about 2 hours and its 99.99% the same.

Most of these posts are real retarded. Yeah it may not be the most complex beat but the song was hooootttt. You know how many people were screaming my president is blue???? Hip hop and rap does not require a beethoven type production, come on now
