The Best 45 Bars From Young M.A’s New Album “Herstory In The Making”

Hello and good DAY! Young M.A, the stud of my dreams and yours, has finally dropped her debut album and my GOD it’s good. She makes me wanna make her a plate, playfully flip her off, and then you know, go do grown folk shit together. And baaaabbyyy, she also has some vocals on this one. We got a little autotune, a little “lemme try and sing-rap like Drake” and it works. It works, it works, it works. All this album makes me wanna do is twerk on a real goon. I cannot wait to lose my shit when the DJ plays “NNAN” at the club. I cannot wait to have makeup sex to “Stubborn Ass.” I will walk down the aisle to “My Hitta.”

For real y’all, Young M.A is probably one of the best rappers in the game right now, one might even argue, THEE best rapper. And to hear her rap in a way that I culturally understand as loving, about other women? My little gay heart is THRIVING. This is the soundtrack to my black queer love story. When she said she didn’t need her niggas because she had her girlfriend??? Legitimately teared up, my dude. She made a gay ass album with 21 songs and they are ALL bangers. Even if rap isn’t your forte, give it a listen. She deserves the streams, in addition to our love and devotion. And this is just her first!! Imagine all the bars waiting for us in the future 😍. Keep it up papi, and also please come to Austin. I just wanna talk.
