My Favorite Color Sounds the Alarm in Jazzy, Chaotic “Mayday” Single

Published

on

Acclaimed for his malleable flows and witty pen game, My Favorite Color specializes in a strain of rap music that’s somehow both ignorant and erudite. Sending a blaring message aimed squarely at anyone who hasn’t yet recognized his titanic talent, MFC shares “Mayday,” a new single. Blessed with an unconventional instrumental that mixes saxophone bleats, white noise, and a hummable keyboard turnaround, MFC paints over the beat like Jackson Pollock, gleefully switching up cadences and contorting his voice into cartoon-like shapes. Lyrically, MFC has fun mixing party-positive flexes with tongue-twisting geopolitical analysis: “I ain’t f*ckin’ with no socialism, communism, chauvinism/Quit votin’ for the puppets, n****, don’t nobody give a f*ck so f*ck it, n****a.”

The latest glimpse of his upcoming project, due early next year, “Mayday” finds My Favorite Color in a rarified spot–he’s confident enough in his abilities to experiment with his craft and to have fun while doing it. “Mayday” immediately follows Old News,” a bouncy, lyrical banger that takes the time to emphasize why the L.A.-via-Pittsburgh artist is different from your favorite rapper, complete with hilarious music video where MFC plays multiple parts a la Eddie Murphy. In the wake of “Old News,” My Favorite Color was named one of the Best New Artists of September 2021 by Pigeons & Planes.

Signed to Rostrum Records, the label that broke Pittsburgh legends like Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa, My Favorite Color looks to follow in their footsteps as the next artist from the Steel City to make it big. “Old News” heralds a return for the L.A.-via-Pittsburgh artist, who is working on his follow-up to Velma, his ambitious debut album. A tour through the Rostrum Records signee’s inventive mind and finely-tuned aesthetic, Velma is a revealing and relatable album–listening feels like catching up with an old friend about his life. On songs like the lead single Funeral,” My Favorite Color contemplates complex questions about faith, mortality, music, and love. Acclaimed by DJ BoothKAZI, and more, Velma is available everywhere via Rostrum Records.

Stay tuned for much more music and eye-popping videos from My Favorite Color in the coming weeks and months.

Atlanta riser Yung Mal has catapulted on his hometown hip-hop scene with help from hard-hitting flows and heavy trap beats native to the A. Cementing himself as someone to look out for in ATL rap, Mal shares, “Like Belly,” his new single. With help on production from JCabz and Nuki (Migos “Straightenin”), the new track opens with choir chants accompanied by a piano before Mal comes in with his booming flow and confident lyrics. Mal sticks with the heavenly chants by sending the message that what he’s been through has made him invincible: “I went through hell pull off with the demon / So much s*** man a young n**** seen it.” Following the flex-heavy tracks “One Night” and “Get Right,” “Like Belly” is the latest single to arrive in the wake of 1.5 Way Or No Way, Mal’s recent mixtape.

Named after the neighborhood in which he grew up, and for a phrase that was a favorite of his late homie Plug1.5 Way Or No Way is a mature and versatile effort. Mal’s rhymes are more polished and precise, reflecting the perspective of a father of a young son and daughter and a neighborhood leader who bears the hopes and dreams of his friends on his back. Home to singles like “Woah Woah” ft. Lil Gotit and the Pitchfork-praised “Wassup Wit Me” ft. G Herbo, the new mixtape earned acclaim from Complex (“Yung Mal can rap with some of the biggest in the game right now and still hold his own”) and HotNewHipHop (“Yung Mal bosses up in a major way on his new project”), as well as coverage from XXLRESPECT, and more. Featuring additional appearances from BIG30 and Real Taker1.5 Way Or No Way is available everywhere via Alamo Records.
