Joe Budden ft. Lloyd Banks, Fabolous & Royce Da 5’9” - Remember the Titans
While the South may have have a nice run, thanks to vets like Slaughterhouse, Fabolous, and Banks, the North is definitely trying to take back the hip hop game. Leading the charge is Joe Budden, who with the help of Royce Da 5’9”, Loso and Banks drops a gem off his Mood Muzik 4 mixtape in the form of Remember the Titans. Produced by J. Cardim, who is no stranger to working with New York artists such as Talib Kweli, Maino and Saigon, the beat has a heavy bass and some simple yet traversed synthesizers that you know is begging to be ripped for freestyles. From the start of Fabolous’ verse, all the way to the end of Detroit native Royce’s, each emcee does not disappoint in their flows. With punchline after punchline after punchline, there’s so many lyrical jabs thrown that you would think the song title would be Rocky, rather than Remember the Titans. Mood Muzik 4: A Turn 4 the Worst drops digitally on October 26.
