“Deuces (Remix)” – Who Had the Best Verse? [POLL]

Today, Chris Brown released the official remix to “Deuces,” his No.1 R&B/hip-hop single featuring Tyga and Kevin McCall. The retooled track features Drake, T.I., Kanye West, Fabolous and Andre 3000—a star-studded line-up indeed.

Drake sets the song off with an endearing slow flow, while T.I. follows with his patented southern bounce. Kanye provides comical one-liners opening his 16 with, “You know what, yo, you a bitch/You should have a travel agent ’cause you a trip.” Not to be outdone, Fabolous displays some potent wordplay with lyrics like, “You think I give two shits? You ain’t gonna do shit/Meet my two fingers: intro, deuces.” Andre 3000 closes out the affair with a conversational delivery and a complex internal rhyme structure: “I did things for her, I ain’t rich, I ain’t poor/I wanted to do more, but, hell, I just ain’t know her/Well enough to know if this was all that she came for/But enough to know tonight, excited she came four—times.”

With so many heavy-hitters on one track, there is no shortage of highlights. But instead of letting us tell it, XXLMag.com would like y’all to tell us who had the better verse.

    Everybody know that Andre 3000 is the best Rapper out of these cats. Kayne doing good on getting the right people for CD. Drake is ok. Kind of weird!! TI is brainwash!! Fabolous is smooth as it get.

    • yessir

      Menz need to hop off 3 stacks jock..

      His verse was average at best. his flow didnt fit the song, and the lyrics were very average.

      People are just so happy to hear him on a track with someone other than big boi.

    • maaaan

      YO! Rick Ross was ill on this remix, he killed most of the people on this. even Andre 3000. you bitches.

  • http://XXL.mag Datboi

    Drake’s verse better than T.I.’s? Nahhh stop the dickridin’

  • black jesus

    the whole remix was wack.

  • jtm

    lol they were all wack except for andre 3000. should we even call these other guys in the song rappers?

  • yoprince

    kanye.. he’s the only one who killed it actually

  • AYE!!!!!

    1. 3 stacks
    2. Yeezy
    3. Fab
    4. T.I.
    5. Drake

  • John Cochran

    Isnt it a little predictable now putting Drake on a song? 3 stacks on this= Eminem on Forever.

    • AO

      “Forever” was Drake song off of a mixtape that was remade with Eminem and Kanye… No one put Drake on Forever, he put everyone else on

      • John Cochran

        What I meant by that was 3 Stacks shitted on them just like Em on Forever. And being that it was Drake’s song makes it worse.

  • South Ambassador

    Everybody killed it in their own way…but out of the blue 3 stacks comes from the basement and blesses us with a rhyme scheme that’s gonna take time to dicipher. 3 stacks overall, but everybody did they thang on this one

    • lilfr4nkie

      agreed

  • new3rakidd

    i will continue to bang the origanal track through my speakers! this was ok, i will pass on downloading it. good look wit the 3000 feature he needs to drop an album and stop bullshittin.

  • ToMeK

    Kanye stood out from the rest for me on this one…

  • http://www.iap-tv.com Harra$$dadon

    How about it B.E.T weekend in atlanta right now…and these b*tch a$$ niccas took Fabolous off the song and replaced him with Rick Ro$$! Aint that sum chit…..politics is crazy in the industry. fab went in, he deserves to b on the song not officer ricky…( I bet Puff paid the radio to play the alternate version!) SMDH!

  • PharoeThaGreat

    Everybody got it in on that track. TIs flow was super slick wit it. Thats what you call ridin a beat. Drake was cool. FAB was cool. Ye had some quotables going on most definitely. Dre 3 as always has lines that will go over the average cats head if ya aint listenin closely.

    Dre 3 murdered it with that line that’ll have you thinkin he talkin about sex then he breaks on em like “get ya mind out the gutter” lol. Many classic lines in these verses.

  • Rockcity

    WoW!!! I’m probably the only one who hated dre’s verse he had the worst imo. . . Kanye Got this his stood out to me. . . overall i love the remix!!!

  • gFuNk85

    Drake was eh, TI was eh, Fabs was eh, Andre 3000 was eh, Kanye’s verse was the only verse that was somewhat aight. I expected more from all of them, especially Andre 3000. This remix sounds like everyone used a throw away verse from their rap vault. I also, will skip on downloading, its a waste of space on my iPhone.

  • Money

    Andre 3000′s verse sucked. It was boring and the flow was wack. Kanye got everyone on this one. Then Drake, Fabolous, TI, and 3 stacks last.

  • kedordu

    ANDRE 3000 SOUNDS BETTER SAYING SOMETHING THAT GUCCI MANE WROTE .EVEN IF HE WASNT THE DRE U EXPECT . TRUST HIS WACK SHIT IS BETTER THAN THE OTHERS . U FOOLS DUNNO HOW TO RATE PERFORMANCES . DRES PRESENCE ALONE . IS ILLER THAN THE OTHERS . FUCKING LIL BOYS TALKING ABOUT WHO KILLED IT . SO FUCKING CHILDISH . KANYE CANNOT RAP . DRAKE CANT RAP . FAB AND TI OK . BUT TI’S FLOW IS MONOTONE . AND FAB IS A PUNCHLINE RAPPER . CONRY . NAH NO TYPO . YALL BEEN CONNED AND DESNSITIZED .

  • Money

    Kedordu, your an idiot… who knows nothing about hip hop… get a job

    • kedordu

      NAH U THE RETARD . MANY THINGS ARE SUBJECTIVE ABOUT RAP . BUT IF U THINK 3K WASNT THE BEST IN THIS THEN U JUST TRYNNA BE A NON FOLLOWER .. ITS ONLY COOL WHEN THERE IS PUSSY AROUND . CUT IT OUT .HE WASNT AS GOOD AS HE USUALLY IS BUT HE WAS STILL A LEVEL ABOUT THE REST . JUST IN THE TONE OF HIS SPITTING . THE CONTENT OF LYRICS COME LAST . THE TONE AND FLOW ARE MORE FUNDAMENTAL HALF OF THE RAPPERS ON THE SONG ARENT EVEN VOCALLY SEASONED YET .SMH U GONNA SAY IM ON SO AND SOS DICK ARENT U . BACK IN THE DAY EVEN VANILLA ICE WAS A WORLD CLASS PERFORMER . NOW EVERYBODY THINKS THEY CAN RAP ? SO NOW U ARE CONFUSED AS TO WHAT AN MC IS AND WHAT A STUDIO RAPPER IS ?

      • woahidiot

        woah you dick ride vanilla ice? you dairy queen topping fruit cake. kanye’s verse was the best. lyrics come last? get the fuck out of here with your caveman logic. high school dropouts like you need to stop going through those picture books and start reading. you dumbasses are the reason i’m ashamed to say i go to school in america.

  • Joe

    at least a few people called out Andre 3k,…as someone said, we aint talkin bout best rapper, we talkin this 1 verse

    Just cuz his flow was odd, does NOT mean its hard to understand or even ‘deep’

    Kanye took 16 bars and summarized a whole situatiion, just like 3k, but better

    smh @ 3k “killed it” Enough already

  • jonny bizness

    Andre>kanye>fab>drake>ti

  • whoop

    ANDRE 3000 THE BEST RAPPER THEIR OVERALL,

    BUT THIS WAS PROBABLY HIS WACKEST VERSE EVER

    KANYE BEATS ANDRE ON THIS ONE

  • WHHACK

    all because andre is the best rapper of em all doesnt mean he had the best verse, he actually had the worst verse

  • Anonymous

    I’m going to say this Andre barely raps at all and hasn’t been doin much lately he has done a few features and killed it yea but the guy has more rhymes stored than kanye or fab cuz kanye and fab are asked to do a ton of remixes and if andre barely does anything you would think that any feature that he would be on he would kill everybody cuz the guy hasn’t done shit at all lately yes outkast is a good group but andre has never put out a great solo album he doesn’t have anything under his belt for ppl to be calling him the best rapper just think about that he has to be more active and his last solo song wasn’t even that good yall just give the man too much props for the little things that he has done kanye has killed several tracks but nobody wants to mention those cuz he has done too much to name andre has killed few tracks and everybody knows all the tracks that he has killed cuz they have been few get my point

  • allhiphop>xxlmag

    rick ross had the best verse on the new version

  • blackhole

    Andre 3000 was brilliant on the track..not just becos he’s Andre 3000 but becos..his verse on this song was on a deeper level..only few can understand what he really means..and it aint worth explaining to those who dont know,if you dont know you’ll never know becos your mind is not open to it… Andre 3000 is on a level way above da rest.

  • pharoeThaGreat

    @blackhole.. Exactly

  • PharoeThaGreat

    ??????Whoever said TIs voice was monotone. Makes me think he doesn’t know what monotone really means, lol.

  • PharoeThaGreat

    Ole boy drake said “You with all them curves, and me without no brakes” whaaaat. Cats on here most def aint really listenin to what these cats are sayin.

  • ItsBrittanyB*tch!!!!!

    lol this sound like some male waiting to exhale type ish!
    it sound like they all set somebody’s volvo on fire, then sat around drinking wine and listening to TLC & Whitney Houston songs. I can hear Kanye now….

    Drake-
    Opens the song as we have come to expect from him.. a somber conflicted monotone insight on the women in his life (exhibit one: Thank Me Later), which isn’t a bad thing, it’s just expected. Despite the predictable delivery he still conveys strong feelings and connectivity with his target audience as usual. Overall it was a good opening verse.

    TI-
    He picks up where drake left off, which happens throughout the song, they are very smooth transitions between verses… TI’s choppy southern flow fits perfectly with the beat paired with his lyrics and delivery makes for a clean solid verse.

    Kanye-
    Kanye flows right into his classic conceded “douchebag” persona which everyone looks expects and looks forward to when you hear Ye on a track. He has a lot of quotable lyrics in his verse along with a few cold heart jokes we have come accustomed to see in Ye’s music. Even though he spits out a lot of selfish jokes and sarcasm there is something very relatable about his verse which makes another solid verse on the remix track.

    Fabulous-
    Fab’s verse is as smooth as it gets, as clever as he’s proved to be in the past. Just a great verse you can vibe to and lyrically full of fun bars to listen to. Another success for the smooth clever technique of young funeral.

    Rick Ross-
    He appears in the version i listened to and he basically just raps about the same things he always does, cars, clothes, pockets of money, how fly he his… he has one line at the very end that i thought pertained to the songs meaning.. his voice and persona will never the less get him thru anyway… it was an ok verse

    Andre 3000-
    3stacks delivers big time. In my opinion arguably the best verse on the track. His word play and complicated rhyme scheme is not to be played with. A lot of what he says will not register if you do not listen closely and will appear to be a lazy conversational verse. Listen to the intricacy of the rhyme scheme and word play, it’s an amazing verse. He even calls out the people who won’t give the verse the time of day, and that right there should make you listen a little more intently at what exactly he is trying to get across here. This verse makes for a great remix to a good song.

  • lbronsouthbeach

    T.I. had the best verse HANDS DOWN!!! Drake ddnt fit well why did have to slow down the song you should have gone with the flow of the beat he wasnt as good as i expected kanye was alrite but really expected more from him as well after tip fabolous was the 2nd best he was jst flowing mad crazy idk bout andre 3000 i fell asleep when his verse came on he might have been rhyming but his stuff was str8 boring!!! The winner is T.I.

  • Really???

    You guys are crazy. Yeah, we all like Andre 3000, but his verse was whack. It’s probably one of the worst verses this year. It’s a complete joke.

    The TI verse is definitely the best. Everyone’s hating on Drake but I think his verse is fine

  • aaron

    3k….the beat changes for this fool….

  • Leo Darkside

    Andre Had the best v..But I think Drake is a Better Singer..And T.I. Best Raper
