Tyler, the Creator & A$AP Rocky vs. 50 Cent — The Boombox Battle
Tyler, the Creator and A$AP Rocky are unstoppable. Beating PARTYNEXTDOOR in last week’s Boombox Battle, they picked up their third consecutive win and are one more victory away from entering The Boombox Battle Hall of Fame.
The track’s lyrical ferocity makes it a great contender. And using Kanye West‘s “Freestyle 4″ for the beat, the two take turns showing off their flow.
“When it come to a vision, I ain’t got one / Rolling Stone never gave me a cover so… / Ummm… so I shot one! / I ain’t do college, I said f— them lessons / I ain’t join no gang, I said f— them weapons / Grabbed the keyboard, Clancy crossed my path / Cashed my first check and said fuck depression, n—- / N—- what you scared for?” the Odd Future leader raps.
Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky throws down a series of questions on his verse.
“Aye I just got one mothaf—–‘ question / Why the f— these n—– wanna look like me now? / Why the f— these hoes wanna fuck a n—- like me now? / Why the f— these n—– frontin’ like n—– ain’t been invented the swag they runnin’ with? / Why the f— is n—–actin’ like n—– ain’t the originators of this s—? / Man I tell these n—– they can die and suck a d—!” the Harlem native spits on the mic.
Tyler and Rocky are going up against a hip-hop heavyweight this week. 50 Cent recently dropped a new version of “I’m the Man” that can make fans send votes his way. Originally appearing on The Kanan Tape, this rendition of the tune features vocals and an emotional verse from Chris Brown. Even with Breezy smooth vocals, it’s Fiddy who steals the show.
“But you love playin’ games with the corny s— / Messin’ with a n—-, I only bought it cause I want it / You love to see a n—- on the bottom / You tried to come up, you don’t keep it on the low / You like a drug, don’t like you to call them hoes / I’m tryna break that booty down like 36 O’s,” Fiddy delivers Chris sings the chorus.
Will Tyler and Rocky go for gold and enter the Boombox Battle Hall of Fame Or will 50 Cent’s revamped track become the champion? It’s time for you to decide. Vote in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once every hour until Tuesday, April 5 at 10AM EST.
