    @Izeytope96 So all the music he added don't matter then? As far as I can tell, he added piano, bass, strings, guitar over it.

    Wow. The original LA Carnival song is fantastic. But come on NO ID. He took 22 sec of Seven Steps to Nowhere and just looped it and added some reverb. By far one of the laziest beats ive ever heard from NO ID next to D.O.A. Absolutely pitiful.
