Nothing But Trouble - Lil Wayne & Charlie Puth

Speed: 63 bpm

The DJ's Take: Am I imagining things, or is hiphop getting cool again? And who'd have thought Charlie Puth would become a hiphop hook specialist? I like this one - good variation and a driving musicality that supports the vocals. The beatmaker obviously took the time, and the result is solid.

A little unconventional, but if you're doing some key-compatible mashups, try half-timing with tracks like the following: The Only Way Is Up - Martin Garrix & Tiesto, Avicii's Levels, Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix) - Lana Del Rey, Flo Rida's Good Feeling, Pound The Alarm - Nicki Minaj, The Night Is Still Young - Nicki Minaj, I Will Never Let You Down - Rita Ora, Addicted To You - Avicii, Die Young - Ke$ha, Dare You - Hardwell, Calling (Lose My Mind) [Radio Edit] [feat. Ryan Tedder] - Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso, City of Dreams (feat. Ruben Haze) - Dirty South & Alesso
