Brooklyn-based rapper Young M.A is experiencing an emergence similar to Bobby Shmurda‘s in 2014, with her single “OOOUUU” on the verge of becoming a late-summer sleeper hit. Hoping to capitalize off of the buzz, M.A drops the vintage-inspired “Summer Story.”
While “OOOUUU” has drawn comparisons to Shmurda’s lone hit “Hot N*gga,” “Summer Story” is pure New York boom-bap at its finest. Using the infamous drums from Audio Two’s “Top Billin,” M.A is flat-out rapping her head off throughout the video. While it’s somewhat difficult to pinpoint what, exactly, is New York hip hop’s “sound” these days, “Summer Story” provides a strong case for it.
