Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Yo Gotti f/ Gucci Mane, Lil Boosie, Trina
Title: 5 Star Remix
Label: Inevitable Entertainment

Is it a bad thing if you are shown up by every single person on your remix? Perhaps not. Yo Gotit's "5 Star Remix" makes the star of the original practically invisible, but as writer Pedro Hernandez noted in a recent review, Gotti is "a staple of Southern D-boy rap" so he really doesn't need to worry about losing his spot in hip-hop. Hot Rod provides the kind of neo-Lil Jon beat that's infiltrating the Billboard charts and FM radio spots in 2009, and even though most of the biters owe the King of Crunk some royalties, the song works. Trina brags about having a pussy so famous that "all you gotta do is google Trina, see the poontang" (try that and see if it works) while Boosie shows love for a chick he swears is the "baddest bitch up in the zip code." Gucci Mane's performance, I could take it or leave it, but his obnoxious "Gucci this, Gucci that" style is at least distinctive and noticeable. Gotti is completely lost in the mix here but that's just fine - it's a fun if essentially vapid hip-hop song.
