Brooklyn-based rapper Young M.A has released her eagerly-awaited debut album, Herstory In The Making. Marking her first release since the Herstory EP in 2017, Young M.A’s new work showcases a deeply personal side of the artist.
Young M.A’s single “BIG,” produced by Mike Zombie, and “No Mercy (Intro),” is key to the record, with plenty of material for new fans and soon-to-be-converts alike. “You’re gonna get the truth,” Young M.A explained in a statement. “You’re gonna get the cocky joints, the slick talk joints where I talk my talk, but then I’m gonna get personal. Real personal. That’s why this album is called Herstory In The Making, because it’s about all sides of me.” Through her lyrical skill and freestyles, the rapper touches upon topics like her own sexuality and rap’s heteronormativity, showcasing her ability to project both flirtatious bravado and a hardened, yet introspective, worldview.
