Seven tracks of swaggering New York bars.

Young M.A has released her debut EP, Herstory, today through her independent label M.A Music.

The EP is meant to be a taster for the Brooklyn rapper’s debut album, Her Story In The Making, later this year, but is a formidable body of work in its own right. M.A goes hard throughout as she raps about the grind, the joys and trials of lesbian life and drinking champagne “like it’s ginger ale”; she takes it back to the ’90s when sampling Monica’s ‘Don’t Take It Personal’ on ‘JOOTD’, and affirms her place in the New York rap lineage with classic references on ‘Same Set’.

Herstory follows two 2015 mixtapes, The M.A Mixtape and Sleep Walkin’, as well as last year’s massive anthem ‘OOOUUU’ – included here as a bonus track, like a victory lap.

Watch the video for M.A’s current single ‘Hot Sauce’ (“I’m in that Audi with some slippers and some socks on / Doin’ 95 just to piss a cop off”) and find the tracklist below.
