One of the coolest trends at the moment in Minecraft is the creation of Minecraft-related re-imagining of popular music – and possibly the fastest-rising music-video star in the Minecraft community is Hojjosh. His latest work, in collaboration with SatoriLove, is “Love the Way You Mine” – a take-off of “Love the Way You Lie” by Eminem and Rihanna.
I’m always impressed when people performing raps are able to do so at high speed and still keep the lyrics crisp, clear and understandable, and Hojjosh just knocks it out of the park! Satori does an excellent job as “Rihanna” – it’s a tricky melody line to achieve.
And then Eric Fullerton of The Shaft got involved, offering to take time out of his schedule to re-master the song! He did a great job, too!
But of course, the song wouldn’t be complete without the video and, aided by Mhykol on camera duties, Hojjosh and SatoriLove made a great shot-for-shot remake of the original, right down to using skins of Eminem and Rihanna – although the original certainly didn’t feature a nerdy guy, wearing a Pac-Man and Ghost T-shirt, in the bar scene 😉
Overall, I think Hojjosh, SatoriLove and Mhykol did a great job, and I’m looking forward to seeing more stuff from Hojjosh in the not-too-distant future!
