Download Full ALBUM: Young M.A – Herstory In The Making.
It’s been a little more than a long time since the inconceivably infectious single “Ooouuu” acquainted the world with Young M.A, kicking off a swell of expectation for the Brooklyn rapper’s studio debut. With the broad Herstory really taking shape, the hold up is at long last finished. An exhibit of the deftness clear from the minute she was presented, the collection paints Young M.A in shifting shades. In certain minutes, she’s everything coy boasting and overwhelming pretense; in others, a solidified, infrequently tragic result of the avenues with nothing to lose and everything to demonstrate.
That pliability underscores her expressive aptitudes, which are irrefutable—particularly in freestyles—however her sexuality and how she rails against rap’s heteronormativity feel like nothing not exactly a little unrest. The ladies throughout her life (or maybe just in her room) are available in each edge of the record, and the easygoing cool with which Young M.A. raps about associations with them feels without a moment’s delay rebellious and consummately conventional. The certainty that impels tunes like “PettyWap” or “Enormous” channels the swagger of her male companions, however one-off lines like the attestation “I wasn’t invited, I forced” on the opening track “No Mercy” advise us that, as hip-bounce goes, she’s as yet an irregularity.
