T-Pain vs. O.T. Genasis — The Boombox Battle
It's official. Not only has Lil Durk won The Boombox Battle four times, but he also becomes the next artist to enter The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame. With almost 83 percent of the vote, his opponent, Bobby Shmurda, didn't stand a chance of raining on Durk's parade.
Now that Durk is in the Hall of Fame, we have two new contenders this week. First is T-Pain. His new track, 'Stoicville,' takes us away from the Auto-Tune vocals he's used in the past to showcase honest rhymes about his life both past and present. The song will be featured on his upcoming album, 'Stoicville: The Phoenix,’ which likely will be out in 2015.
T-Pain's opponent this week is rap newcomer O.T. Genasis with his song, 'CoCo.' The rapper details his love for the white powder with some lyrics that are both repetitive and catchy. The Atlanta-born, California-raised rapper, who's a member of Busta Rhymes' Conglomerate, brings a different kind of energy as he puts everything he has into his minimal lyrics.
"36, that's a kilo / Need a brick, miss my free throw / I'm in love, just like Ne-Yo / Bustin' shots, now he Neo / Free my homies, f--- the C.O. / F--- the judge, f--- my P.O. / All this coke like I'm Nino / Water whip like I'm Nemo," he spits.
Who will win this week? Will T-Pain's introspective track come out on top? Or will O.T. Genasis' ode to 'CoCo' knock him from the block? Now it's your turn to decide. Vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Nov. 18, at 10AM ET.
