Young M.A. Puts Her Skills Where All Can See As She Busts Rhymes On A Hard Freestyle (Video)
Young M.A. is having a nice 2018. She heated up the summer with her “PettyWap” and “Car Confessions” singles, not to mention sparking the season off with a mean Funkmaster Flex freestyle. Following last year’s seven-song Herstory, the Planet Brooklyn resident has been performing around the world, as well as seguing into adult film direction. To keep fans satiated, she dropped by the L.A. Leakers show to light it up with a freestyle.
Justin Credible laces her with the beat from Busta Rhymes early hit “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See.” The banger from Bus’ 1997 album When Disaster Strikes (produced by Shamello, Epitome, and Buddah) seems to set something off in M.A. as she raps for nearly three minutes straight with a wide grin on her face. She takes a momentary pause and then kicks another minute’s worth of bars.
Arriving in a black tank-top and matching du-rag, her appearance is no frills. She is covered in enough ink to possibly make Wiz Khalifa jealous, and even jokes about looking fresh out of jail. As always, M.A. represents with a classic East Coast flow filled with witty lines about money, jammers, and ladies. While there is many a highlight in her four minutes of rhymes, here is one highlight of wordplay: “Keep the nina’ in the bed, let her see the sun rise / And I keep a knife just in case I gotta cut ties / Never was really a fan of having best friends / See, I’m the type to get more money, less friends / Life is all about les-sons / And I learned the lesson to never make less than the next man / If I get married, keys probably be my best man…”
It’s easy to see why some Heads recognize Young M.A. is a top late 2010s voice on the Beast Coast.
