In her own words, “I linked up with Quincy Scott, a 20 year old director/editor from New Orleans, for the visual that we shot back at home. It’s public knowledge that I recently signed a deal with Russell Simmons’ All Def Music record label backed with distribution from Universal Records. When people heard the news, naturally the expected me flash money on Instagram, go and purchase a new car, or do some other flashy shxt to prove that I recently reached a new tax bracket. And although I’m richer than I’ve ever been, that’s not the reason I feel like I made it. I’m still driving the same Dodge and drinking 3D Na’Tee Daiquiris instead of Dusse and Ace of Spades. “She Made It,” or at least she’s on her way to making it, because she did it her way. And that my friends, is the coldest feeling ever.”
07 I was pedaling dope out my Tahoe/
married to medicine like the chicks off of Bravo
Used to spend my days pducking 5.0
Now I be out in LA doing Tabo
Did a deal/ I’m worth but I’m still strapped though
I guess I gotta buy a chain and a whip according to the black folks
I guess I gotta do it for the gram/ for the cam/ and spend a stack?/ NO
What the phuck I look like?/ that ain’t what I rap for
But I did it/ yeah I did it
Started shxtting on these bxtches y’all thought I was kidding
Told universal cut the cut the check/ Think I got a victim
Now I’m doing everything that I envisioned
To my admission/ I ain’t never have a pot to piss in…
Inspiration can come at any moment. Maryann decided she wanted to rework this Goldlink song on Friday (3/28/14). She came up with an idea for the concept, and N8 got to work on the beat. In this remake of Goldlink’s “When I Die”, Maryann reworks the song from a different perspective. Instead of focusing on her own demise, she points out how thinking about someones death can bring up such emotional reactions, negative or positive. This track is a sharp contrast to her playful last release #CookingForBae. Her Sophomore album “Futuristic Always” is set to release April 28th, it features Stones Throw artist Guilty Simpson, Devin The Dude and more.
I mean, need we say more…? Don’t say there aren’t female artists out here, “All my bitches on deck, standing on the frontline coming for your neck, grenades ready to explode, pest control for you cockroaches, I suggest you respect us before you approach us, any other method is hopeless…” states Da Brat on her verse. This is an exclusive “She-Mix” with Babs, Vita, Da Brat and our girl Justina so make sure you download, play it and share it!
Out of the UK, Cher Lloyd is a singer, emcee and songwriter who many are saying is “the future”. You may know her from her song “Swagger Jagger” off her Stick & Stones album which reached No. 4 in the UK Charts.
