Whose ‘Lean’ is More Gangsta? DRS or The Clipse?

drs-clipse.jpgContinuing with today's "gangsta" theme, we thought it might be a good idea to have it boil over into Battle of the Beats. "Diggin' in the scene with a gangsta lean" was coined by William DeVaughn in "Be Thankful for What You've Got" a track that, sadly, didn't make our recent sampler for not being in the iTunes store. But the term has been invoked many times since, and today's battle features two tracks that share the name "Gangsta Lean"--one, an ode to fallen soldiers and the other, to marijuana--a substance with which we are most certainly unfamiliar.

DRS: "Gangsta Lean"

The Clipse: "Gangsta Lean"

  1. Clipse are my boys...but Gangsta Lean is a classic

  2. I still mourn the omission of my favorite gangsta lean.
    Got to go with DRS. No brainer. Indeed, this song is a classic. The Clipse version reminds me of some Pharell song that I'm too lazy to look up.

  3. "This is for my homies, see you when I get there"...classic song. DRS in a landslide

  4. AHH yes!! "This is for my homies..." Have to go with DRS. Although, I was and still am a Pharrell fan. So, the opening of The Clipse's "Gangsta Lean" gets me every time.

  5. Clipse are one bright spot in the sad landscape of hip hop, but DAMN I remember the DRS joint.. hope they had thier paperwork strait, they should have made a mint
    DRS all day
