57 Songs That Sound The Same

Drake "I'm Goin' In" (2008)

Kanye West "Cold" (2012)


Where They Sound The Same: The first few seconds. Seems like Hit-Boy and Needlz got their hands on the same sound kit.

"I'm Goin' In" was produced by Needlz, who laced the trio of high-profile rappers with a stomping beat that enhanced the quotable verses and simple but effective chorus. In April of 2012, Hit-Boy was tapped for Kanye's "Theraflu" (later renamed "Cold") and the production sounds like "I'm Goin' In Pt. 2." Kanye's ruthless raps made "Cold" powerful enough not to sound derivative, so we'll turn our heads and pretend that the production isn't suspiciously similar.
