I would disagree, but that's because I made it!
I don't think I would be personally satisfied until it sounds like Dr. Dre mixed it ...
I think it sounds 'reasonable' - the lower end is a little lacking though.

Included is the first verse completely dry, and also the first verse completely wet (including the reverb and chorus send) boosted by 3db after export (didn't use soundcloud because it eats quality)
Chain is 2 tracks (L5 - R3) bussed into one group track
SSLChannel Stereo: 69hz high pass, HF +6.8 db @ 8.99 khz, LMF -2.9 @ 1.57 khz, compressor 7.5:1 ratio, -4.6 threshold, slow attack, 0.15 release
Waves RDeEsser: Range -15.7, Thres -33.9
API-550A Stereo: HF +4 db @ 10khz
also, a small amount of send to waves doubler and verb (it sounds like the mix sample has too much verb, but in the context of the song it sounds ok ...)
