Rap anthems are typically geared towards those struggling to succeed against long odds, whether their mission is to hustle their way out of the streets, succeed in an overcrowded music game, or simply be as much of a player as humanly possible (shouts to UGK!). But what about those who’ve already won—don’t they deserve one, too? Donny Goines seems to believe so; on the latest single off his forthcoming full-length, he’s enlisted as few of his winning-est homies to craft a Champions Anthem. Beatsmith Maki provides a suitably exultant, brass-sampled backdrop (complete with a dope piano hook) for the headliner’s victorious bars, as well as the equally triumphant lyrical stylings of Houston mainstay Bun B, Kansas City-repping Booth fave XV, and ATL buzzmaker Pill. DJ Corbett rounds out the lineup, lending his gruff vocals to the record’s hook. So, Booth readers, is everyone on the cut a Champion, or can there be only one? Debate away—or just keep it locked for the latest tunes off Donny Goines’ Rocawear/Artful Dodger-sponsored Success Served Cold street album, scheduled to hit the ‘net November 11.
