Aminé offers an anthem for the melanated.


Aminé dropped his latest full-length project a few days ago. ONEPOINTFIVE has a bunch of standout tracks, proving that Aminé is versatile in flow and content. 

"CANTU" is a wink at the haircare brand that bears the same name. The brand is crafted specifically for people who have curly hair and who are most likely Black. Aminé's track cruises in the same lane as he raps about his hair's unicity and how some people act a fool trying to get close to the 'do.

The relatability of the track tugs at listeners' humor and gives them an empowering bop to bump when faced with the f*ckery. It' ends with a spoken outro that calls out those who misstep by touching people's hair out of "curiosity":

"Who has nice hair? Me. Who can touch my hair? Not You. Did you think this was a petting zoo? Do I look like somebody's dog? Do I look like somebody's cow? Do I look like somebody's lamb? No! Sit Down."

Quotable Lyrics

I'm in this motherfucker with my hair down low
And that Becky wanna touch me
'Cause she wanna come home (yeah)
Bitch I'm in my motherf*ckin' bag, ho (in my bag)
Don't ask me just to pet me because you can't, ho
Dreadlock rocker with a certified bopper (true)
Jenny, Becky, and Samantha wanna touch me 'cause I'm handsome
