If you’re like most hip-hop fans, there’s at least one rapper you’re so sick of that you wish (mainly in jest) somebody would just knock his lights out. Inglewood, California rapper Jay Rock feels the same way—after growing up in some of the toughest streets in America, seeing certain “studio gangstas” misrepresent themselves leaves him itching to Beat A Rapper Down. Though Busta Rhymes sticks with his new-school flow on his guest verse, Diverse‘s beat and hook sound like something he would’ve spit to a decade ago. Either way, Beat A Rapper Down is a slightly deceptive track; while the beat’s rather subdued, the song’s aim is clearly to get listeners hyped. With that said, if you’re having serious thoughts about jumping an MC, SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP!
