Even though I am a DJ, I rarely have that much interest in the MTV music awards, or any awards show for that matter. I always felt like the music that is popular in the streets is never accurately represented on these type of shows.

I also have similar feelings towards Beyonce. I acknowledge that she is probably the best current entertainer living. However, I feel like I’m not the intended target audience for her type of music. As somebody who grew up on Too Short and Snoop Dogg, I just never felt right bumping “Irreplaceable” (unless it is the version that I remixed here):

She covered her entire 2013 release in one concise action packed sequence with no breaks. She didn’t miss a single note (as far as I can tell). She had shiny upside down asses, “Drunk In Love” leg kicks, and the attention of an audience who was previously texting throughout the show. To cap it all off, we caught a glimpse of Diva-In-Training Blue Ivy dancing along to her mother’s tunes:
