Wu-Tang Clan vs. Busta Rhymes – Rap Battle
While Action Bronson put up a good fight with ‘Strictly 4 My Jeeps’, Wu-Tang Clan‘s ‘Family Reunion took over last week’s Rap Battle and won. The race was close, however, Bronson’s 45.71 percent just couldn’t overtake the Wu’s 54.29 percent.
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.
This week, we’ve put Busta Rhymes‘ new joint, ‘#Twerkit (Remix),’ against ‘Family Reunion.’ Featuring Nicki Minaj, the track is a strong sound representation of the islands. Although it may not be highly regarded for its lyrical content, this is clearly one for the clubs or the next beach party. And it’s Rhymes’ song, but Minaj is the one that steals the show. “Queen yah, London rate we di same way! / Come here bwoy! Bowcat, oh, true yuh rich? / Weh yuh wallet? / Yeah, yuh have it? / Mmm, gi me it!” she spits.
Will Wu-Tang Clan remain at the top? Or will Busta and Nicki be able to take the win with their club banger? Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Thurs., June 20, at 10 AM ET.
