Today I bring you another edition of FSD’s Battle of the Beats series, however, we’ll call this episode the “hook edition”. Today we have Officer Rick Ross and Bump J squaring off, with Trey Songz in the middle.
Apparently, Mr. Songz sold the same hook (remember: don’t try that with Tru Life) to Ricky Ross and Bumpy Johnson, altering it a bit for Ricky’s latest album Trilla. Due to label limbo and industry politricks, Bump’s version has never seen the light of day – until now.
So my question is: which track is better? Do you go with Lt. Ross, or with the Chief of Chicago, Bump J? Is Trey Songz shiesty for this, or is that just how it goes in this business? The topic is up for discussion – as always.
But I warned you Bump was coming, right? Look for Bump vs. Rick Ross Part II coming soon.
