A Young M.A primer.
Brooklyn produced two breakout stars in 2017: Desiigner and Young M.A. M.A's "OOOUUU" served as a kind of salve for Brooklynites who did believed that Desiigner's "Panda," which blew up about seven months prior to "OOOUUU," did not adequately represent their borough. While Desiigner remains a bit of an enigma, Young M.A is a more legible personality, in part because she is an obvious descendent of the rugged, lyrical, no-nonsense New York hip hop tradition.
