Young M.A Breaks Down “PettyWap” (Video)

Young M.A breaks down her “PettyWap” single. Makes it even doper when she helps you catch all the cleverness in the lyrics.

Young M.A just dropped her newest single “PettyWap” this month, a follow up to her March release “Praktice.” The Brooklyn-bred rapper initially rose to fame after her 2016 hit “OOOUUU” went viral, peaking at No. 19 on the Billboard Hot 100 later that year with the help of remixes by notable fellow New York MC’s like 50 Cent, Nicki Minaj and Remy Ma. “PettyWap” has already garnered 7.2 million YouTube views since its release earlier this month. Orrin “Dr. O” Wilson and Antwan “Amadeus” Thompson co-produced the track. On the song, Young M.A raps about how girls often prefer her over their boyfriends.

Fabolous & Jadakiss Break Down The Lyrics For “F vs. J Intro” (Video)

Daaaamit! We are NOT doing wack rap over here this year (as if we did ever). We are on the soapbox, standing for LYRICISM in the ‘018, like what we have her in the “F vs. J Intro.” The words and meanings behind them are laid out lovely by the architects of the rhyme – Fab and Jada.

Fabolous and Jadakiss ended 2017 with ‘Friday On Elm Street,’ a collaborative album that features Future, French Montana, Yo Gotti, Jeezy, and more. The title is a reference to the classic ‘Friday the 13th’ and ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ horror movies, and the project kicks off with the aptly titled “F vs. J Intro,” an abbreviated version of the film series’ respective villains Jason Voorhees and Freddy Kreuger. The horror movie mythology is woven throughout the track, as both Fab and Jada explain to Genius.

Joey Bada$$ Breaks Down “Land Of The Free” (Video)

What’s really cool about these videos where artists break their lyrics down… we get to learn not only about their throught processes with the lyrics, but about their thought lyrics as a person. For this Joey Bada$$ break down for his “Land Of The Free” jawn, even more so. DOPE!

Joey Bada$$’s politically charged track “Land Of The Free” was released on his birthday—and the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. It’s a single from his forthcoming album AABA but serves as his personal statement on the current state of America and his ambition to create change for the future.

Young M.A Breaks Down “OOOUUU” (Video)

Okay, I’m not the first to admit. But I wasted several clips – at several minutes each – that tried explaining what the hell Desiigner was saying on “Panda” (Panda… Panda Panda PandaPanda ggtthhrrrtaak!!).

And her expo of the “OOOUUU” flow makes me even more so. Check it out.
