Black Hippy – "Try Me"
Here’s a super throwback featuring the core four plus one. In case you didn’t know, Punch gets busy on the mic, as well. He was able to mesh well with the Black Hippy boys: "My niggas half step like foster daughters / My mic can slaughter a nation like the angel of God / You think this a lyrical homicide nigga." Punch came with the punches here, but as for the core four, they all delivered big time.
Soul-o delivered some poignant lines, Jay Rock once again came with that bully flow, Q’s flow was on point, and Kendrick’s verse was otherworldly-- "In the game no winning even if it’s a scrimmage / You can get coached right now / Black Phil Jackson maxin’ / Cooler than George Bush when the planes went down." He feverishly keeps dropping more and more bars like "Y’all wait on Wait to drop C3, I drop C4," and "Put em in a fully body cast like a sitcom." When Kendrick is on one, he’s too hard to contain.
Winner: Kendrick Lamar
