It’s been five years since Young M.A first made her way into the public sphere as one of the hottest up-and-coming rappers. Now, she’s finally putting out her debut album.
On Thursday (August 29), Young M.A announced that her debut album, Herstory in the Making, would be available everywhere on September 27 via M.A Music / 3D. The album’s first single, “Big,” and its music video have already captured fans’ attention, amassing over 12 million views in a matter of weeks.
In a statement put out with the news, Young M.A revealed that the album would clock in at a whopping 21 songs, each giving listeners a chance to learn some hard truths about the rising star. “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,” she said. “That’s why this album is called Herstory In The Making,’ because it’s about all sides of me.”
Along with the announcement, the rapper also released her latest single and video for “PettyWap 2.” The video shows Young M.A dancing around a massive pool party, flirting with girls, shooting off a squirt gun and witnessing the party’s massive aftermath. “Accidentally I got famous, but got rich on purpose,” she flexes.
