August Alsina vs. Bryson Tiller – The Boombox Battle
August Alsina can't be stopped. The singer earned 64 percent of the fan vote, gaining nearly double the votes of Chris Brown's "Zero" in last week’s Boombox Battle. Now Alsina moves on to the next round against rising star Bryson Tiller and his song "Exchange."
Tiller, a new artist from Kentucky, attempts to woo his girl back on "Exchange." It's also a testament to his sound, and album title, TRAPSOUL, as he delivers lyrics about love and blowing dank.
“Next time around, f--- I want it to be different, yeah / Waiting on a sign, guess it’s time for a different prayer / Lord please save her for me, do this one favor for me / I had to change my player ways, got way too complicated for me / I hope she’s waiting for me,” he sings over the breezy MeKanics-produced beat.
As for last week's winner, the 23-year-old boasts about his extravagant lifestyle in "Why I Do It." But it doesn't come without a little work, as the Def Jam artist explains. He also gains an assist from Lil Wayne in the track off his album, This Thing Called Life.
“I ain’t gotta tell you why I do it / Get cash, get cars, go hard / I ain’t gotta tell you why I do it / N---- I don’t ask why you do your job / I ain’t gotta tell you why I do it / I grind sundown to sunrise / Don’t tell me to prove it, cause I might lose it,” August affirms.
