Default If you love "The Way" you don't know even the basics of hiphop history.

A lame interpretation of Big Pun's classic.

Big Pun is a fantastic rapper but I will take Fat Joe.

It's funny because you pick the girliest of songs for Big Pun.

Why can't we like both songs?

Ariana is a pop singer, not a rapper. She's still doing kids shows for Nick, so of course her music is going to be very pg. It's a nice little song though, her vocals are great, and she looks cute as hell in the video. They weren't trying to make a song like the original, so no point in comparing them imo.

My favourite Big Pun song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vdTR_uQR04

Please refrain from being an idiot in my direction. The point, which you either missed or are just failing to acknowledge, is that "The Way" is an unoriginal knock-off of a song by Pun. Why you turn around an mention that Fat Joe is better or whatever, I'm not sure, possibly born of that stupid troll "Kobe>whoever" mentality you possess but regardless it has nothing to do with the topic. I would appreciate it greatly if you shut up and die. Thanks in advance, as there would be no point in saying it posthumously.

She teamed with that Mac Miller guy, who does rap, and thus it's a combo of a rapper and singer, like the far better song done by Pun and Joe. If they weren't trying to do a song like Pun's (far more) original they shouldn't have used that beat. The producer showed absolutely no creativity, just taking the whole beat and laying it down, no changes in that talentless Jermaine Dupri style. Not cool.
