Money vs. love, checks vs. art. It’s an age old battle that artists have been fighting since the dawn of time, or at least since the dawn of the modern music industry, and judging by B.o.B.’s new leak F*ck the Money the ATL emcee’s already decided which side he’s on. One of the standout tracks off his May 25th mixtape, F*ck the Money’s centerpiece is some of the best Kanye production we’ve heard in a minute, which is ironic considering he reportedly made the beat way back in 2005. Regardless, it’d be wrong to say that B.o.B. and guest artist Asher Roth (who’s getting better every time I hear him) “kill” this one, instead they more appropriately bob and weave in and out of the track, dropping a combination of lines and then letting the haunting vocal sample finish the job. For more from Atlanta’s rising star be sure to check out his May 25th mixtape, available for download now, as well as an exclusive interview dropping next week (unless DJ Z makes a lot of money and quits this crazy scene first).
