More often than not, the best duos in rap are polar opposites when it comes to their respective deliveries. Whether it's Snoop Dogg's nasally tones juxtaposed with Dr. Dre's gruff bark, Bun B's baritone butting heads with Pimp C's Southern-fried snarl or Raekwon's dialed-down soliloquies offering respite from Ghostface Killah's unhinged rants, contrast usually makes for a more satisfying whole.
On A$ton Matthews and $ha Hef's new song "Hunger Games," West not only meets East, but two very different voices brush up against each other. Matthews' high-pitched bars open things up, and Hef's deep voice takes us home, making for a dynamic, effective collab.
I ain't no killer but don't push me
This money's like the sweetest joy next to getting pussy
And the only thing fucking with that is busting down a brick
Better pray it's No Malice, you see me pull up with them clips(e)
