Lola Brooke is in her bag with this song! The Brooklyn native delivered an R&B-tinged song and it’s completely left field from what fans would expect. The ‘Don’t Play With It’ rapper teams up with Bryson Tiller for their new collaborative effort ‘You.’ The exciting track is a breath of fresh air, with upbeat melodies and a sweet chorus. The song samples ‘Get Me Home’ by rap princess Foxy Brown featuring R&B group Blackstreet. Foxy Brown is another NYC-native female rapper, so it’s only right that Lola pay homage with this collab. Undoubtedly, the reworked song by Lola and Bryson has a nostalgic feel to it. Produced by the talented Khris Riddick-Tynes and LilJuMadeDaBeat, ‘You’ exemplifies Lola Brooke’s ability to switch between her high-energy mode, to producing music that has a chill soulful R&B melody. On the track, she delivers bars in her signature deep voice, the magnetic allure that first captivated listeners in the first place. In a historically male-dominated hip-hop scene, Lola confidently holds her own alongside male peers and makes her presence felt. [via HNHH]
A few months ago, the extremely horny St. Louis rookie Sexyy Red released Hood Hottest Princess, one of of the year’s most straight-up fun rap albums. In the past few weeks, Sexyy Red has appeared on tracks with Lil Durk and Moneybagg Yo, and now she’s got a new single on the soundtrack for the HBO show Rap Sh!t. The Issa Rae-produced Rap Sh!t tells the story of two Miami women who hope to use rap to escape lives of credit card fraud and OnlyFans sex work. It’s a sort of fictionalized sitcom version of City Girls’ story, and both City Girls are co-executive producers. The show’s second season is set to arrive in November, and it’ll come with the new compilation Rap Sh!t: The Mixtape. That tape’s first single is Sexyy Red’s bouncy, catchy workout ‘No Panties,’ which is about exactly what it says it’s about. The song is actually credited to Sexyy Red and Raedio, but Raedio is just Issa Rae’s music production company. Give it a listen below. Yesterday, Sexyy Red also dropped the video for her new single ‘Shake Yo Dreads,’ which is not associated with any known HBO show but which has a fun, reckless immediacy. The thunderous chanting on this one reminds me of prime Waka Flocka Flame. [via Stereogum]
