The posse cut has, by all accounts, faded in popularity. Every so often, we’re treated to a gem, like Danny Brown, Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul & Earl’s “Really Doe,” or A$AP Rocky’s stacked “1Train” lineup.
Yet in an era where features are a mainstay, a posse cut has become a refreshing surprise. Now, Mike WiLL Made-It has assembled some of the game’s formidable heavyweight, resulting in the primal fury of “F.I.G.H.T.” Eearz, Gucci Mane, YG, Trouble, Quavo, and Juicy J band together under Mike WiLL’s banner, delivering their variation of a “Fight Music” or a “Never Scared.” For those who seek the nostalgia of a posse cut, “F.I.G.H.T.” should cover cravings both old-school and new.
Taking to an aggressive instrumental, each rapper threatens unseen foes with vows of violence, emboldened by the chanting refrain.
YG and Trouble come through with back-to-back standout verses, with the former bringing an unrestrained sense of fury, which likely earned him his moniker to begin with. Plus, the triumphant return of the “MAMA!” ad-lib should not be understated.
