Song: Gangsta Luv [ft. The-Dream]
Artist: Snoop Dogg
Album: Malice in Wonderland
Producer: The-Dream

Song: All I Really Want [ft. The-Dream]
Artist: Rick Ross
Album: Deeper Than Rap
Label: Def Jam
Producer: Tricky Stewart
Notes: 2nd single from LP
Analysis: ‘All I Really Want’ is one of the “meh” tracks off of Deeper Than Rap, although not the worst by far (‘Face’, ‘Miami Mami’ & ‘Bossy Lady’ all tie for that accomplishment). But it has it’s drunk-at-the-bar type of benefits, and I can respect and appreciate that. The video is actually surprisingly beautiful, as it was shot on-location in Colombia, not to mention the bikini’d women. ‘All I Really Want’ is a decent R&B track; it’s not going to have a lot of staying power or lasting effect for years to come, but for-the-moment music is the business that Rick Ross thrives in.
