Young M.A spent most of 2018 dropping singles for the streets, keeping her name hot, performing, and jumping on features. To kick off 2019, the New York rapper has decided to reach into the vault of classic hip-hop beats. She bravely steps onto Clipse’s “Grindin,'” a song that changed the life (and the lunch tables) of any 90’s baby that was old enough when Lord Willin’ dropped in 2002. Young M.A’s latest freestyle, dubbed “Baked,” comes along with a video where the young rhymer stalks around what appears to be her condo.
Directed by Marc Diamond, the “Baked Freestyle” video is a one-shot of Young M.A. Visuals pop up randomly to help paint pictures of the lyrics being performed. Captions for ad libs take over the screen at moments, giving the video an old school feel reminiscent of cartoons from the early 1900s.
I got a brick in my pocket
Cause I don’t carry a wallet
Promote money, stop promoting that violence
That’s word to James Harden we still holdin’ them Rockets
