Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix) - Kanye West ft. Jay-Z



tempo: 97 bpm

bpm range: 95 to 100 bpm

the dj's take: Song #2 in our Exhibit 18 mix (2:42):



Reading about conflict diamonds makes me wonder whether we give ourselves too much credit as a species. Especially considering our weakness for shiny objects. My solution - buy more cubic zirconia.

As for the track, it's an underrated banger. Worth a spin on a throwback hiphop night.

Some other key-compatible singles:

Lemon - N.E.R.D & Rihanna
Versace On The Floor - Bruno Mars vs David Guetta
Same Old Love - Selena Gomez
Nuthin' But A G Thang - Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg
Style - Taylor Swift
LUV - Tory Lanez
Hide Away - Daya
679 - Fetty Wap
Check The Rhime - A Tribe Called Quest

dj mix/mashup: do you think of me [mariah carey] x always forever [bryson tiller]

Links: Made with Logic Pro at 72 bpm Fun little instrumental blend of Bryson Tiller's Always Forever , which we used in mix 66 , and Mariah Carey's Do You Think of Me , which ended up on the cutting room floor. As you can see up top, I broke out the scalpel and did some slicing to make the beats match up better. Final verdict: Worth it. Follow the playlist on djcheatsheet.com
