Can the “Voice of the Young People” still represent for the hip-hop youth after abandoning them for so long?When Lil Mama burst onto the scene with her infectious 2007 hit “Lip Gloss,” she was an 18-year-old rising rapper committed to the self-appointed role as the “Voice of the Young People,” which was also the title of her debut album released in 2008.
It becomes clear through the positive message on “Sausage” that the “VYP” has been resurrected.
Lil Mama does a noteworthy job of bridging the old school with the new. M.” and Kelis’ “Milkshake,” with contemporary tracks like Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” and Cheddar Da Connect’s “Flicka da Wrist” showcases her creativity.
The rapper uses more than a dozen sonic references of hip-hop hits old and new. Mama is in touch with what’s hot right now while simultaneously being respectful of the forefathers of hip-hop who paved the way. The accompanying visuals quickly amassed more than one million views on You Tube after its May 29 release — now it’s at 3 million and counting — and reminded critics, who once questioned the validity of her role on , that if nothing else, Lil Mama can dance her ass off.
Now she finds herself once again trying to get back to the music and what brought her to the limelight in the first place: her knack for delivering catchy rhymes.
With the release of her safe-sex ode “Sausage,” her first attention-grabbing single in about five years, she’s matured and giving millennials some sage advice.
“Sausage” picks up were “Lip Gloss” left off as far as simplicity goes and lyrics that you can’t get out of your head, all over a solid boom bap rhythm. Lil Mama is promoting a more mature message of safe sex.
“Eggs, bacon grits (sausage) / You better use a condom if you taking that (sausage),” she rhymes on the hook.
Some have the title of businesswomen or graduate, others have turned into trap queens or become moms.
Whatever they identify with these days, they all managed to do so without the “VYP” Lil Mama.
The former chart-topper took a lengthy hiatus from rap to focus on her other passion: dancing.
She devoted herself to being a judge for seven seasons on the reality competition series.
