Rawyals vs. Lil Mama – The Boombox Battle
Rawyals are still holding on strong to The Boombox Battle title with their third consecutive win. The group beat Boosie Badazz's "She Don't Love Me" with more than 80.5 percent of the vote, dominating last week's battle.
Mentored by 50 Cent, Rawyals are making their mark with the song “King Me” featuring Fetty Wap. The bass-heavy mid-tempo track features the strong, independent ladies Ariel Nicholson, Bel Cabrera and Asia Shabazz. According to the lyrics, they won’t be taken advantage of and in this chess game, they rule above all else.
“I don’t associate with lames now / Another level, we are not the same now / Chance or check ’cause I’m gon’ end the game up / A pawn and queen together, never stay in your lane / Baby I, I don’t do it / Out of your league, you must be stupid / Up on this pedestal looking at you acting like a groupie / Got my crown on tilt cause I know they watching, watching me / ‘Cause I ain’t no regular, regular, nah bitch I’m royalty,” they sing.
This week, Rawyals compete against the fiery Lil Mama. On her new track "Sausage," the rapper is on a mission to get everyone to practice safe sex. She urges men and women to "use a condom if you taking that sausage," a euphemism for the male anatomy. Mama delivers lines over Slick Rick’s classic beat to “Mona Lisa,” and proves she doesn't have time for anyone who doesn't want to follow her rules.
“My whole style is straight wild, no patience / Check out my hair, it’s Persian and Malaysian / I cut it off in the summer when it’s blazin’, yes / I cut you off if you fakin’ and hatin’,” she raps.
Who will win this week? Will Rawyals keep their winning streak going and not only win again but also enter The Boombox Hall of Fame? Or will Lil Mama prove that her safe sex anthem sends the right message and inspires fans to vote for her. Only you can decide. Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., June 9 at 10 a.m. ET.
