#MusicMustListen - Brianna Perry "Marilyn Monroe"

Nicki who?

"Super Bass" may still be the tune responsible for making me swerve my car while air punching along in my seat, but the femcee scene (the female equivalent of the 'emcee' scene, obv), has been growing for reasons other than Nicki Minaj's over-contoured nose and stolen Lil' Kim wigs. Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea and Kreayshawn are just some of the freestylin' chicks bringing hip-hop back to the charts, following on from the 80s and 90s explosion of g-power rappers such as Salt n Pepa, Queen Latifah, Eve and Foxy Brown among others.

Now my latest obsession du jour - Brianna Perry - is bringing her own style of razor-sharp lyrics into the mix, pulling ahead in her own lane by creating the ultimate single ladee anthems.

Having worked with Missy Elliott, A$AP Rocky, Trina and Wale - Perry's latest track, “Marilyn Monroe”, taken from her Face-Off mixtape, is produced by Lamb, and features the Miami-born femcee primping and pouting as she channels the Hollywood legend in the official video (below).
It also features a few wonky weaves, but let's gloss over those for now, because I predict this tune will officially be your new addiction starting......NOW!
