Tory Lanez vs. 50 Cent — The Boombox Battle
Tory’s new song, “LUV,” is already getting a fair amount of radio play. Like his previous single, “Say It,” Tory samples Tanto Metro and Devonte’s 1999 track, “Everyone Falls in Love.” But similar to how he worked with the classic 90s Brownstone track “If You Love Me” on “Say It,” he infuses his own lyrics and flair to the reggae tune and transforms it into his own creation. Produced by Benny Black and Cashmere Cat, he sings about trying to convince this girl he’s into to give him a chance.
“We all sip that Henny for the day baby / Come my, my way baby / Top down on the highway baby / And if you let me love you / Shawty she don’t even got a visa / Out of town, one night teaser / Need to tell them other n—-s ease up / I’m falling but everyone falls,” he sings in the second verse.
This week, 50 Cent will be going up against Tory. His new song, "No Romeo No Juliet," is an interesting blend of hard-hitting beats with the fluidity of the classical violin. Fiddy is at a strip club with Chris Brown, who's featured on the track, and warns everyone out there for the women who aren't looking for their Romeos but for someone to be their sugar daddies. The cautionary song not only give us new rhymes of 50 Cent but also highlights Breezy's sptting skills.
“Quit f—– around, not playin’ around bitch, s— is for real / Quick makin’ a stack, back makin’ some mill, I mean, get us a deal,” 50 Cent delivers.
Meanwhile Chris throws down his own verse with, “P.I.M.P, who the shotta them / I’m the girl dem sugar, watch them follow him / Had the homies come through, 400, that be the block / Take yo s—, we going up on the Instagram / Higher than a ceiling fan, I’m whippin’ bricks in the kitchen / I’m flying shit out the window like I was Peter Pan / I handle my own s—, I own s— / Alone s—, middle finger to the middle man."
Who will win this week? Tory Lanez's revived rendition or 50 Cent's bumping anthem? It’s your turn to decide. Vote in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once every hour until Tuesday, July 5 at 10AM EST.
