It didn’t take a co-sign from Eminem to know that Young M.A. was spitting bars at an elite caliber. The New York lyricist has been widely regarded as a consistent voice in the game, her hard-hitting and unflinching style refreshing in a sea of imitators. And her repertoire is only growing. Today, M.A. came through to deliver a brief seven-song EP lined with bangers, including the spooky standout cut “Trap Or Cap.” Produced by Mike Zombie, the track opens with a minor key loop, an ominous backdrop for M.A’s Henny-fueled bars.
“Don’t hit my phone, pour me up some Hennessy, roll up a bone, I’m tired of hoes, how the hell you broke, but wearin’ designer clothes?” she ponders, having lost all patience with those who practice cap. And while living life in a frustrated state might be tiring, it never hurts when M.A raps with a chip on her shoulder. In those moments, the intensity is upped and the brush-offs are all the more scathing. Check out “Trap Or Cap” right now, and sound off — is she one of the most badass lyricists in the game right now?
Don’t hit my phone, pour me up some Hennessy, roll up a bone
I’m tired of hoes, how the hell you broke, but wearin’ designer clothes?
You stupid ho, I swear I’m through with those, cause damn, they do the most
That clout and shit, I don’t care bout the shit, I don’t care if you known
Them cappin guys, always rappin’ lies but be a rat inside
Chasin’ cheese, I’m out here chasin’ green, you either trap or die
