Post Malone vs. Kodak Black — The Boombox Battle
After garnering success with his breakthrough single, “White Iverson,” the 20-year-old rapper smooths things out on his new single, “Boy Bandz.” With a melodic flow, he compares his chains to *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys while delivering his verses in the Hollywood Hills, as he shows in the accompanying visual.
“I got *NSYNC dancing on my neck / And these Cubans cost a motherf—ing check / Got boy bands like I’m Lance Bass / ‘Preme ‘lil momma come away,” he spits on the hook.
Kodak Black will be Malone's opponent with "Institution," the title track off his latest mixtape of the same name. The acoustic song shows a introspective side from the Florida rapper. He rhymes about how he's missing his other half. However, he's stuck in jail so they can't see each other anymore.
"I'm missing you / I'm like what you doing / What you getting into / Baby who you screwing / I'm missing you / I'm like what you doing / Trying to get to you but I'm in institution," he delivers in a singsong-y manner.
