Congratulations to Troy Ave for winning yet again. His track 'Hot Out,' took 81.25 percent of the vote in last week's Rap Battle and beat Casey Veggies' cover of Tupac's 'Baby Don’t Cry (Keep Ya Head Up II),' which only received 18.75 percent.

Troy Ave‘s new track, ‘Hot Out,’ seems to align perfectly with the heat wave that’s been ravaging the U.S. this summer. Produced by Scram Jones, the track, off his new mixtape, ‘BSB Vol. 3,’ is the perfect hot weather anthem. “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.

Kirko Bangz's 'Cup Up Top Down' is battling Troy Ave this week. The song is off the Texas rapper's upcoming mixtape,' ‘Progression III.' Known for his Auto-Tuned vocals, he gives props to his southern home state with Paul Wall, Z-Ro and Slim Thug on the track.

"I hold my cup up, I let my top down / And every where I look they pouring up now,” he rhymes.

Will Troy Ave dominate again this week? Or will Kirko Bangz be able to take him down? Remember you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Thurs., Aug. 8, at 10 AM ET.
