Pretty Brayah’s on a roll. “Wassup” was a fiery hit that showcased her tenacious rhyming style, and it looks like her follow up, “Slide Talk” will be the song to further the world’s fascination with her. The Detroit lyricist lets you know about what it means to “slide” on someone, and her venomous lyrics and delivery are in stark contrast to her beautiful outward appearance. “Lil Barbie lookin’ bitch,” she says about herself, referencing her innocent, sensual looks. Don’t let her catch you slipping.
FMB DZ acts as the secondary authority figure in the short visual. He brings his usual delivery of charismatic street bars with a hint of purposeful laziness, like Garfield if he grew up on the dark side of Detroit. Combined with Brayah’s helping, the two create a powerful street anthem that’s only weakness is that it is too short.

@AkhilSesh’s visual for “Lil Thouwow” will throw you for a loop
Akhil Sesh’s latest visual is “Lil Thouwow” and if there’s one word to describe it, it’s definitely “wow.” That’s a good one by the way, often because the word gets misconstrued in this context. In the visual for the song smoother than usual song, Akhil Sesh loads on copious amounts of special effects that showcase a drive to be eclectic. It works, too.
