Lil Durk vs. Young Thug & Rich Homie Quan – The Boombox Battle
Lil Durk is staying strong at the top in The Boombox Battle, earning more than 83 percent of the fan vote for his remix of 'Try Me.' He beat his opponent T.I. and his song 'About the Money,' featuring Young Thug -- Tip brought in just 15.6 percent of the vote.
Durk's take on Dej Loaf's 'Try Me' reveals his personal struggles and achievements. The Chicago rapper pats himself on the back for signing with Def Jam and avoiding a 10-year prison sentence. “And since I got my deal I feel important / I live what I rap and just recording / They try to give me 10 if I ain’t have a lawyer / N----s out here snitchin’ they straight informers,” he delivers.
Young Thug is given a second chance this week with his collaboration with Rich Homie Quan on 'Lifestyle.' As part of Rich Gang, the Atlanta rappers boast about the big money they're making and celebrating their current success. The track is produced by London On Da Track and features ad-libs by Birdman.
“We came straight from the bottom to the top my lifestyle / This is only the beginning / N---- livin’ life like a volcano / And this is only the beginnin’ / I’m on the top of the mountain puffin’ on clouds and n----s still beggin’,” raps Young Thug on the chorus.
Meanwhile, Rich Homie Quan delves into the endless work he puts into his craft. "I do it for my daddy, I do it for my mama / Them long nights, I swear to God I do it for the come up / I'm Willie B beating on my chest, in the jungle, aye / Money on money, I got commas in every bank / Sunday through Monday I've been grindin' with no sleep," he spits.
