Kanye West + Jay-Z vs. Tyga – Sound Off
Kanye West and Jay-Z reign! After just one win, Ms. Minaj and her single 'Stupid H--' lose to Hov and Ye in PopCrush's Sound Off series. Today, the 'Watch the Throne' single, 'Gotta Have It' is paired up against Tyga's smash single 'Rack City.'
Kanye West and Jay-Z's six and most recent 'Watch the Throne' single is a midtempo jam featuring an infectious looping Eastern melody over hard-hitting drums and synth beats. Funk originator James Brown gives them a little love in a sample in the outro.
Tyga's third single off 'Careless World: Rise of the Last King' is an ode to the Vegas strip girls -- full of cliched and NSFW lyrics. But it's the catchy, repetitive chorus and handclaps over the lower register synth helmed by producer DJ Mustard that wins us over -- again and again.
So, which do you prefer: Kanye and Jay-Z's track 'Gotta Have It' or Tyga's third single 'Rack City'? Cast your vote for either song below -- the poll will close on Jan. 27 at 8AM EST.

Rules of ‘Sound Off’:
There’s only one rule for our ‘Sound Off’ series: If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight days, it is retired to PopCrush’s ‘Sound Off’ Hall of Fame. With tons of great tracks coming out everyday day, we have to give other artists a chance to win!
