The near-sarcasm of Makonnen’s upfront lyricism is encapsulated perfectly with No Ma’am, the latest track to receive visual treatment from his Drink More Water 5 mixtape.
The song, which is all about Makonnen’s mum worrying about him still hustling drugs, has its video ironically set at a typical trap house, with the likes of Ceej and other Two-9 members popping up in the background to let you really know you’re in the 678.
Features come courtesy of the currently incarcerated Rich The Kid (which does make the video slightly awkward, admittedly) and the currently blue bearded Rome Fortune, who’s been an Overdiluted favourite for years now. This is a great summer track with a nice video and heck, a message that’s the antithesis of all the trapping and guns you hear about in hip-hop most of the time.
