Last May saw the release of Young M.A’s latest project Red Flu, which sees 7 new tracks from the Brooklyn emcee. This week, she drops a new visual from the EP for “Angels vs Demons,” which sees M.A in full reflection mode over production from Benjamin Lasnier:
“I’m back to my habits, back to my ways, back to puttin’ that ‘yac to my face, back to dumpin’ these ashes and trays, back to who I was back in the days/
Back to the grain, can’t believe I actually changed, talked about gettin’ rich, now I’m actually paid, swerved a little, got off track, now I’m back in my lane/
Life is good, yeah, but I always relapse to that pain, mental health is a stain, them thoughts in the back of my brain, man, f*** love, them b***hes ain’t deserve the love that I gave.../”
The visual comes courtesy of Marc Diamond and shows a Hennessy sipping, jewelry-wearing Young M.A out on the streets with her crew. It’s a departure from her more catchier, club-ready singles, leaving way from some of the hardest, poignant bars heard from the New York star thus far.
“Absolutely. I love what the city has done. Unfortunately, we lost somebody that was on fire, rest in peace Pop Smoke. ... He definitely had it on the roll, man. ... When I found out about the news, it was f***ed up because I lost my brother at the same age... So it just brought back memories. ... But I love what New York and what Brooklyn is doing right now with the young guys that’s moving. This is something we need. ... I just wish Brooklyn would stop beefing so much. That’s the only issue.”
