Review[edit]

  • No dablinks
Lead
  • Lead is too convoluted. Also, ref might no be on the lead if they appear on the article body. And, if they're on the lead because they don't appear on the AB, please fix that issue (if exists).
  • Done
  • "The song was the only one on the album not produced by West, instead produced Bink!, and written by West, Ross, Malik Jones and Bink!." ""Devil in a New Dress" was produced by Bink!.

  • Done
  • "It has received several remixes and freestyles from several notable musicians" "It has been remixed from several musicians".
  • X mark.svg Not done Still to be done
  • Now done
  • The freestyle is a type of remix, and "notable" is needless and POV.
  • Done
  • ""such as J. Cole, Jay Electronica and Joell Ortiz, amongst others". Delete "amongst others", as it doesn't add nothing to the phrase.
  • Done
  • "Ross released a music video, showcasing his verse, and the song was prominently featured in Runaway, a 35 minute short film directed by Kanye West set to music from My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy." "Ross promoted the song releasing a music video in which he showcased his verse.

Composition and lyrics
  • Suggestion: Separate into two paragraphs, one for the composition and remixes and the other for the lyrical content and critical commentary. This way, it's better for the reader.
Reception
  • Suggestion: Separate into two paragraphs. One for the mostly positive revoews and the other for the mixed to positive and mixed. This way is better.

Both have been done to the best of my abilities I believe.

Covers
  • Wolves In Sheeps Clothing is a song? If it's a song, then it must be "Wolves In Sheeps Clothing".
  • Done
  • I went and mase some minor edits.
  • I rewrote the caption for the second sample.

Thank you!

Promotion
  • I went and made some minor edits.
  • Moved the image to the left. It's better of the sample above is on the right.

Again, thank you.
