Track Review: Young M.a., ‘Ooouuu’
Rhyme after rhyme, Young M.a. impresses with her flow on “Ooouuu.” It serves as a fantastic introduction, showcasing the utmost potential.
Newcomer Young M.a. brings a tough-as-nail persona to rap. The deep-voiced female MC from Brooklyn could easily be mistaken for a male on hard-hitting banger, “Ooouuu.” For a female rapper, she brings tons of machismo to the table…or something like that. Interestingly, according to Rolling Stone, Young M.a. was nearly Freda on Empire, but declined the role. While she probably would’ve nailed it, she proves why she’s an MC to watch on the infectious “Ooouuu.”
From the start, Young M.a. asserts she’s buzzed on the intro:
“Yo bro, I think I had too much Hennessy man…”
The intro confirms the club banger status. The production work further affirms this. It’s not the flashiest work on the boards, but the production suits her and evokes the East Coast sound.
Young M.a. goes on to delivery fierce rhymes on her verse, which is essentially hookless save for the nonsensical titular catch-line. Most interesting is how open she is about being a lesbian. She presents herself as butch as opposed to feminine, exemplified by her hard-nosed rhymes. One of the “baddest” rhymes comes with a sexual reference often delivered by male rappers:
“Baby gave me head, that’s a low blow / damn she make me weak when she deep throat / I need a rich b*tch not a cheap ho / They be on that hate shit, I peep though.”
Further down the verse, she delivers more top-notch rhymes drenched in sex. After brilliantly referencing Sesame Street, she spits:
“If that’s your chick, then why she texting me? / Why she keep calling my phone speaking sexually / every time I’m out, why she stressing me? / You call her Stephanie? I call her Headphanie (OOOUUU).”
Rhyme after rhyme, Young M.a. impresses with her flow. “OOOUUU” is a fantastic introduction, showcasing the utmost potential. Ultimately, it’s well-produced, masterfully rapped, and infectious enough to get the male MCs in check.
