Action Bronson vs. Wu-Tang Clan – Rap Battle
Congratulations to Lauryn Hill for winning last week’s Rap Battle by taking an overwhelming 87.5 percent with her song, ‘Neurotic Society.’ Unfortunately, Fat Joe and his song, ‘Love Me Long Time,’ didn’t stand a chance and only received 12.5 percent of the vote.
With Hill’s fourth victory, she now becomes the next artist to enter the Rap Battle Hall of Fame. As a result, we have two new spitters going head-to-head in this week’s Rap Battle.
On one side is Action Bronson‘s ‘Strictly 4 My Jeeps (Remix)’ featuring LL Cool J and Lloyd Banks. The Queens rapper shows his love for the New York borough as well as shows how much power he has on the mic. Each rapper’s verse is so proud almost to the point of being cocky. But with the street banging cred all over this track, the cockiness fits the vibe of the song.
“Flushing / In front of Queens Center Mall, leg up on the sweatpants / Same outfit every country that the jet lands / Jetlagged, just left France / Stuff a motherf—in’ face into a bedpan / Shimmy in the GMC Jimmy / So I can make assists like Mike Bibby,” Bronson spits.
Meanwhile, Wu-Tang Clan‘s ‘Family Reunion’ is less abrasive and more celebratory. Produced by RZA, the song samples the O’Jays and commemorates the veteran rap group’s 20th year together as a group. The track is off the long awaited new Wu-Tang Clan project, ‘A Better Tomorrow,’ out this fall.
“Aunt Cherry baked pies, surprise / Johnny showed up / You can tell from the smell in the air, something is rolled up / It’s love, peace and happiness with the joy of laughter / Cameras are flashing as the moments are being captured,” Masta Killa delivers.
Will Bronson’s aggressive track win this week’s battle? Or will hip-hop veterans the Wu-Tang Clan take all the votes as well as the win? Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Thurs., June 13, at 10 AM ET.
