Fetty Wap vs. Dipset – The Boombox Battle
Fetty Wap is staying strong in The Boombox Battle, winning for the second straight week. With just above 72 percent of the fan vote, J. Cole's 'Apparently' didn't have a chance to come out victorious.
Hailing from Paterson, N.J., Fetty Wap’s ‘Trap Queen’ has been blowing up on the internet in many ways. With over 4 million listens on Soundcloud and more than 2.2 million views of the track’s video, the song has put Fetty on everyone’s radar and even landed him a deal with Lyor Cohen’s 300 Entertainment.
The mid-tempo tune showcases Fetty’s sing-song rapping approach and his songwriting skills, which feature him loving his girl, money and the bando.
“I’m like, ‘Hey, what’s up, hello’ / Seen yo pretty ass soon as you came in that door / I just wanna chill, got a sack for us to roll / Married to the money, introduced her to my stove / Showed her how to whip it, now she remixin’ for low / She my trap queen, let her hit the bando / We be countin’ up, watch how far them bands go,” he delivers on the first verse.
Instead of just one rapper, we've got four with Cam'ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey, better known as Dipset. They just dropped a new single, 'Have My Money,' a follow-up to 2014's ‘Dips---s.’ The track has an old-school vibe that brings you back to the good ol' days in Harlem and finds the crew spitting rhymes about what it takes to make money and their rise to get where they are today.
“I was selling coke, no joke, no cola / Just made a quarter mill off Ebola, what’s up,” Cam’ron raps as he opens the track, while Jim details his version of New York City. “Still do Harlem in my flip flops, summertime, hopping out the ‘Rari with the missing top.”
Who will win this week? Will Fetty Wap take the win for a third consecutive week? Or will Dipset take The Boombox Battle crown away from the Garden State and bring it over to the Big Apple? Now it's your turn to decide. Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Jan. 13, 2015, at 10AM ET.
