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.
Young Thug is ready to take on this hip-hop duo with his new track, “For My People.” With the help of Duke’s verse and Be El Be on the visual’s direction, Thugger has a strong song on his hands that will make you want to listen to his cause. “For My People” comes from his latest mixtape, I’m Up.
“I put it down for my people / Ready to die for my people / We multiply with the people / Have a shootout for my people / We gon’ take lives for these people,” Young Thug delivers.
