Willie D vs. Dave East — The Boombox Battle
Willie D’s controversial track, “Coon,” slams everyone from Stacey Dash to Charles Barkley. The former Geto Boys rapper is unapologetic about how he feels regarding black celebrities who’ve done pretty much anything for the paycheck — even when it’s something that is offensive to the community.
“If you’re sellin’ out your people you’re a coon / If you hate your own kind you’re a coon / Bootlicker’ shuck and jive you’re a coon / You’re a coon, you’re a coon, you’re a coon / If you’re sellin’ out your people you’re a coon / If you hate your own kind you’re a coon / Sambo died slow your a coon / You’re a coon, you’re a coon, you’re a coon,” he delivers on the hook.
Ready to take on Willie D's track is Harlem's own Dave East who recently dropped "Bad Boy on Death Row," a strong new song with The Game. Produced by Buda & Grandz, the track has a mid-tempo beat that will feel familiar. However, it's the back and forth flow between the two rappers as well as their tenacity on hitting a number of different topics that makes this song a head-nodding banger.
"Donald Trump ain't safe on my block, gotcha your wifey at IHOP / Your baby mother love that cyclops, my one-eyed monster / Interrogations keep comin' back, shit feel like karma / They add grams, now I moving with Benz, ain't talking contra," Dave said on one of his verses.
Meanwhile, Game paid homage to the A$AP Yams. "RIP to Yams when we in Harlem cookin' collard greens / I start trippin', it's like Future when he outta lean / And I don't do construction, but this hammer hangin' out my jeans / And what you rappers gonna do when you run out of memes," he delivered.
Who will win this week? Willie D or Dave East? It's your turn to decide. Vote in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once every hour until Tuesday, May 31 at 10AM EST.
