Pusha T vs. Post Malone — The Boombox Battle
With the hype around Pusha T’s latest effort, King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude, his new single, “Crutches, Crosses, Caskets,” is a strong contender. With a steady beat that’s reminiscent of his Clipse days, his flow is naturally flawless. And the video breathes a life of its own.
“I’m Yasiel Puig, I’m in another league / I defected, only thing we have in common, n----s bleed / In ya thousand dollar joggers as you rhyme about ya dollars / Is there shame when a platinum rapper’s mother lives in squalor? / Mildred’s in the Bahamas for the month / She’s probably sitting in her pajamas having lunch / Swordfish, my reality is more fish / Banana clips for all you Curious Georges,” Pusha delivers on the second verse.
This week's contender is none other than Post Malone. After garnering success with his breakthrough single, "White Iverson," the 20-year-old rapper smooths things out on his new single, "Boy Bandz." With a melodic flow, he compares his chains to *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys while delivering his verses in the Hollywood Hills, as he shows in the accompanying visual.
"I got N'Sync dancing on my neck / And these Cubans cost a motherfucking check / Got boy bands like I'm Lance Bass / 'Preme 'lil momma come away," he spits on the hook.
Will Pusha T keep his momentum going? Or will Post Malone's suave delivery bring him the win this week? Now it's time for you to decide. Go vote for your favorite song in the poll below. Remember, you can vote once per hour until the poll closes on Tues., Jan. 5 at 10AM ET.
