A$AP Mob vs. Ab-Soul — The Boombox Battle
Michael Jackson does it again and steals The Boombox Battle win for the week with 95.34 percent of the vote, which left Usher’s ‘Good Kisser’ with only 4.66 percent. With this fourth consecutive win, MJ enters The Boombox Hall of Fame. As a result, two new songs are will compete in a new battle.
First up is A$AP Mob‘s new song ‘Hella Hoes.’ Centered on money, luxuries and lots of women, the Harlem hip-hop collective deliver their best rhymes about how much game they have over a looping drone-like beat and the strategically placed gun shot sounds. ‘Hella Hoes’ is off the group’s upcoming album, ‘L.O.R.D.’
“Uh, pretty mothaf—a, pull up in this bitch like / Uh, jiggy mothaf—a, hella hoes on my d— like / Uh, really with the s—, if a n—- trip, loading up the clip / Never slip, tight, never sleep, finna let it rip in this bitch,” Rocky raps.
Ab-Soul is on the other side of this competition with his track ‘Hunnid Stax.’ Off his new LP, ‘These Days…,’ out on June 24, the rapper and fellow TDE member Schoolboy Q rhyme about hustling and making as much money as possible. Kenny Beats provides the rhythm as the two hip-hop artists show off their distinct rapping styles. Although this effort only offers two voices as opposed to A$AP Mob’s many, that doesn’t take anything away from the song.
“Who gettin’ that dough / Who gettin’ that cake / Who gettin’ that bread / Put a ticket in your head if you can’t relate / Who gettin’ that fetti / Who gettin’ that cheese,” Ab-Soul spits at the top of track.
Who will win the battle this week? Will A$AP Mob’s slick East Coast swagger get them the win? Or will Ab-Soul and Schoolboy Q’s West Coast aura win fans over? You’ll be able to vote for your favorite once per hour until the polls shut down on Tues., June 24, at 10AM ET.
