Last week’s Boombox Battle was really close. But Nipsey Hussle squeezed through to the next round after getting 53 percent of the fan vote and beat A$AP Ferg and Tory Lanez’s collaborative song, “Line Up the Flex.”
Nipsey Hussle beat the dynamic duo with his latest track, “Ocean Views.” The Los Angeles rapper throws down thoughtful lines over a live instrumental filled with mid-tempo drums, atmospheric keys and a lively bass line. Nipsey asks the big questions and takes an introspective look on his life on this one.
“I don’t know about hell / I don’t know about heaven / All I know is bout’ right know this lifestyle is interesting / I’m just down in my section I just write these confessions/ N—-s die to get life around me I guess that I’m an exception, blessings,” he raps.
Willie D will be going against Nipsey this week with his controversial track, “Coon.” Slamming everyone from Stacey Dash to Charles Barkley, the former Geto Boys rapper is unapologetic about saying how he feels about black celebrities who’ve done pretty much anything for the paycheck — even when it’s something that is offensive to the community.
“If you’re sellin’ out your people you’re a coon / If you hate your own kind you’re a coon / Bootlicker’ shuck and jive you’re a coon / You’re a coon, you’re a coon, you’re a coon / If you’re sellin’ out your people you’re a coon / If you hate your own kind you’re a coon / Sambo died slow your a coon / You’re a coon, you’re a coon, you’re a coon,” he delivers on the hook.
