Rap’s favorite husky underdog Remy Ma has finally released some music from her upcoming “Seven Winters and Six Summers” album with the lead track, “Wake Me Up” featuring Lil Kim Lee, and it’s just as boring as I thought it would be.

Since signing with Columbia Records this Fall Remy has been feeling Glowed Up and everyone who hates Nicki Minaj is pretending she’s the next female mc messiah, but I personally don’t see it in Sis’ future.

My personal critique is that her flow isn’t bad. I mean it’s more of the same hate and jealousy aimed at Nicki {which is what she seems to be building her brand around}, but I found the Queen Bitch sample redundant, tired, and overdone. I found Lil Kim’s chorus very lazy and uninspired. As negative as that sounds I’m more disappointed that it actually COULD have been a solid single but Remy is letting her preoccupation with Nicki hold her back creatively. I also feel clinging to Lil Kim is just petty. I never remember them being close before she was locked up and Lil Kim embodies everything she claims to hate about Nicki.


I also have a big problem with all this implied homage they think Lil Kim deserves. It’s like Kim expects us to love her more than she loved herself. I personally find her hard to look at. She makes me sad what she’s done to herself and we’re all supposed to pretend she’s not completely unrecognizable. She’s chopped, screwed, and bleached her face so much that we’re supposed to pay homage to this perverted relic of the Lil Kim we all fell in love with.

Hopefully Remy will stand on her own and deliver us a message that doesn’t include how much she doesn’t like Nicki. But until then we get this. Someone wake me up when she actually has a hit. She keeps coming for Nicki, but can’t even surpass Cardi. 

But if you don’t like Nicki you’ll love this. If you have no feelings toward any of them I don’t you’ll be as impressed. These two sound mad and stuck in the 90’s and should never try this sex symbol shyt like ever. Y’all are old ladies now. Go be wives and mothers.

I liked the ski masks tho. That was a cute look for them.
