Fetty Wap vs. Lil Wayne – The Boombox Battle
Fetty Wap continues to hold it down with his third consecutive win in The Boombox Battle. He moved past Dipset in last week's Battle, flying past the Harlem rappers with over 92 percent of the vote for his track, 'Trap Queen.'
Hailing from Paterson, N.J., Fetty Wap’s ‘Trap Queen’ has been blowing up on the internet in many ways. With over 6 million listens on Soundcloud and more than 2.7 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.
This week, the opponent is Lil Wayne and his new song 'S---' remix, off his new mixtape 'Sorry 4 the Wait 2.' The song, which was produced by Mike WiLL Made It and originally released by Future, finds Weezy showing off his lyrical prowess -- he even sings a bit on this one. He shares his frustrations about the delay of 'Tha Carter V' and avoids any semblance of a hook, relying on pauses and the singing to make it an even stronger track.
“Yeah, you see what I’m saying like you heard what you see, I’m a verbal disease, I’m allergic to me / Been a turd on these streets since my curtains was sheets / Chef on these beats, I’m just stirring the grease / That bitch you in love with, she working for me,” he delivers.
Who will win this week? Will Fetty Wap be able to hold on to the crown for one more week and become the next artist to enter The Boombox Hall of Fame?
