While Young Thug‘s “For My People” is meant to rile up the masses, it wasn’t strong enough to beat Tyler, the Creator and A$AP Rocky‘s winning streak. With more than 66 percent, their track, “What the F— Right Now,” has picked up another win in The Boombox Battle.
The track’s lyrical ferocity makes it a great contender. And using Kanye West‘s “Freestyle 4″ for the beat, the two take turns showing off their flow.
“When it come to a vision, I ain’t got one / Rolling Stone never gave me a cover so… / Ummm… so I shot one! / I ain’t do college, I said f— them lessons / I ain’t join no gang, I said f— them weapons / Grabbed the keyboard, Clancy crossed my path / Cashed my first check and said fuck depression, n—- / N—- what you scared for?” the Odd Future leader raps.
Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky throws down a series of questions on his verse.
“Aye I just got one mothaf—–‘ question / Why the f— these n—– wanna look like me now? / Why the f— these hoes wanna fuck a n—- like me now? / Why the f— these n—– frontin’ like n—– ain’t been invented the swag they runnin’ with? / Why the f— is n—–actin’ like n—– ain’t the originators of this s—? / Man I tell these n—– they can die and suck a d—!” the Harlem native spits on the mic.
PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s new song, “Come and See Me,” will be this week’s opponent. Produced by Noah “40” Shebib, the light drum rolls against the smooth keys are a nice backdrop for PND’s vocals. Drake lends a verse to the vibey track. Both men talk about the back and forth in a relationship.
“All you say is come and see me for once, come and see me for once, you never come to me,” sings PND on the chorus.
Drake flips the script and tells the girl he wants to visit her.
“I don’t even know what things are looking inside your place or how it’s decorated / This thing is getting one-sided I can’t even lie to you,” he delivers.
Will Tyler and Rocky take another win? Or will PARTYNEXTDOOR and Drake’s slow jam ruin their chances? It’s time for you to decide. Vote in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once every hour until Tuesday, March 29 at 10AM EST.
