It’s an endless source of material for rappers, to expound on the weakness of their competition. It’s been a staple of hip-hop almost from the beginning, and shows no sign of letting up. It’s fun, really, I mean there’s no limit to the ways one can express the superiority of one’s own skillz and crew, and it can be entertaining. Here’s a solid track of boasting, complete with that pitched down “skrewed” male vocal, some gr8 samples and production, plenty of clever lines, and a nice hooky female vocal chorus. It’s a genre within the genre, and a way to show love for the form, more than anything else. Step up to da mic, you gotta be up on game, yo! Bust it.
