And the WTF of the Week goes to Pharrell Williams and former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis for their so-called mixtape, Natural Born Hitters. This unlikely collaboration arrives via a marketing tie-in with Under Armour athletic wear and only comprises three tracks coming in at a minute-and-a-half each. They are titled “Training,” “Practice,” and “Pregame,” and feature intensely delivered motivational shouting by Lewis set to half-baked beats by the hitmaker du jour (see Robin Thicke, Daft Punk, Nicki Minaj, Earl Sweatshirt, Azealia Banks, 2 Chainz …) who folds trap, electro, and drifting psych into the mix.
