Troy Ave vs. Casey Veggies – Rap Battle
Troy Ave has taken the win this week by beating out Trinidad Jame$ with 60 percent of the vote. Jame$ only received 40 percent.
Troy Ave‘s new track, ‘Hot Out,’ seems to align perfectly with the heat wave that's been ravaging the U.S. at the moment. Produced by Scram Jones, the track, off his new mixtape, ‘BSB Volume 3,’ is the perfect anthem for the summer. “Look at the degrees / It say 90 but it look a 100 though / I’m hot boy Troy / Who you think that they consult,” he spits.
His opponent this week is Casey Veggies. If you haven't heard of him, he's a Los Angeles rapper currently under the Roc Nation umbrella for his solo work. He recently released a cover of late rapper Tupac Shakur's 1999 single, 'Baby Don’t Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II).' It's something he worked on a while ago but decided to share it with the world on his 20th birthday (July 18).
“I did this song a few years ago when I was working on 'Sleeping in Class,'” he said. “It’s my birthday so I decided to release it.. thanks for the love.. ima keep going.. rest in peace to Tupac.”
