Brooklyn rapper Young M.A clearly had something to get off her chest, and let it all out on “EAT,”a freestyle rapped over The Lox’s iconic 1998 track “Money, Power & Respect.”
As is an inevitable part of fame, the Brooklyn rapper is attracting a lot of new adoring fans, but with the love comes the drama and the hate, and in the single, she fired direct shots at all her detractors. A six-minute freestyle, Young M.A let it be known she’s aware people are coming from her, but also that she is in no way intimidated or planning to halt her hustle.
She kicked off the single by taking down people calling her homosexual slurs, and also addressed a recent incident during a performance in Poughkeepsie, New York, where she told fans who didn’t have their cameras out to move to the back of the crowd (an incident she later blamed on being too tipsy). She also spoke to her coming album, spitting, “I swear when this album drop, they gonna hate me some more.” She did not, however, provide a drop date.
The song is pared back and raw and all about her immaculate flow and yet another showcase of why she’s been a breakout talent.
