“Pretty women wanna push a Benz
Come correct and she won’t let you in
Thumbin’ through a check, she gets it in
Diamonds on your neck, is them pretend”
This week’s Sound of the Week is a banger!
Vince Staples’ “Yeah Right” is a cacophony of techno sounds and thumping bass. It is loud and incredibly catchy. Overall, the concept for the song is regarding whether the famous lifestyle that rappers portray is truly genuine. Verses by Kucka and Kendrick Lamar compliment this idea, with Kendrick’s verse being one for the ages. It appears as though whenever the Compton emcee features on a track, whether it’s Travis Scott’s “Goosebumps” or Isaiah Rashad’s “Wat’s Wrong”, he does his best to outdo the other artists on the track. This is likely what makes Kendrick the rapper that he is today. In the end, be careful not to play this song too loud, or turn up the bass too much; it could potentially cause your listening device to catch fire!
