It’s been almost two whole years since Kanye West uttered that infamous phrase during his acceptance speech at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Yet, in the grand scheme of the musical landscape, it’s felt so much longer. The reason? Hip-Hop’s mainstream has gotten a complete make-over. It seems as if ever since Ye mentioned those words, melody > lyrics has been the wave. Just look at the artists over the past year who have generated the most press and you’ll see names like Lil’ Yachty, Lil’ Uzi Vert, Playboi Carti and more dominating those conversations.
The reason? The kids, bro… & the kids told us on Twitter that Las Vegas reps Lil’ Knight and Lil’ Koat are next up, practically begging for their new track, “She Understands” featuring Vegas’ resident Teen King, Le$LaFlame. Well kids, here it is.
Set to the tune of a beautifully distorted flute — actually it might be a recorder? — by producer Locks, the song follows a similar pattern that most of today’s popular tracks have adopted: flows, hoes and more flows. The twist in this one is the chemistry between the three artists. The trio seamlessly bounce off one another to give off cadences that sound effortless, but would leave you sounding silly attempting to try on your own.
Check out the premiere for, “She Understands” below and get hip.
