Since Trackstar is Crew, I’ll him tell his own story behind the concept for this mixtape.
“Since Jay-Z stopped worrying about being the best and declared himself the greatest, many people have claimed the title of Best Rapper Alive, but few as often as Lil Wayne and Royce Da 5’9″. While Wayne is a global superstar and Royce owns the underground, they seem to share similar taste in beats — “D.O.A.,” “I’m Me” and “Can’t Tell Me Nothing” as notable examples. I went ahead and put together twelve rounds of Nickel and Weezy facing off over the same beat, threw in a boxing motif, and now I’ll let the people decide.”
And the most I’m going to even attempt to add to that is this is worth a fuckin’ listen A.) for Track’s setup and B.) to hear these two guys literally rip each beat to shreds.
