Talib Kweli Partners With Elizhi and Phonte for ‘No Competition’
On the Khrysis-produced ‘No Competition,’ Kweli, Elzhi and Phonte effortlessly deliver braggadocio rhymes with no catchy choruses in between.
“Y’all n—-s just be off with no centerfolds / Y’all n—-s are softer than some dinner rolls / ‘Te, this fake n—-s have been exposed,” raps Kweli.
Then Elzhi throws some upper-cut rhymes to weak rappers who have sorry flows and sad hooks.
Phontigallo brings it home with his closing verse, spitting, “We should have did this s— a long time ago / ‘Cause every single line, every rhyme I wrote / Is nothing but opiates, stimulants, yeah n—-, all kinds of dope.”
He then adds, “Don’t need a track for that bottom feeder rap / You n—-s are plain, son / An A-K to a paint gun / Competition n—-, there ain’t none…at all.”
No competition, indeed.
‘Jamla Is the Squad,’ hosted by Statik Selektah, drops Jan. 28.
