Maliibu Miitch returns with “Double Up.”
If she’s proven nothing else, Maliibu Miitch has used the last few months to successfully convey just how versatile and she can be. Frequently vacillating between raspy deliveries that vary across a noticeable range in pitch, the South Bronx-bred emcee has injected an interesting flavor into the realm of women-led hip-hop these days.
As she prepares her forthcoming album, tentatively If Dead Men Can Talk, Malii now returns with her latest “Double Up” cut, yet another selection draped in nostalgic soundscapes that epitomize the concrete jungle as the rapper hops over the beat with a commanding swagger that’s become just as important as her lyrics. Per usual, don’t expect Maliibu to let up much on this one. Asserting her independence and a “by any means necessary” attitude, Maliibu Miitch is undoubtedly one to watch this year.
Tell ’em stop callin’ my line, I’m on my grind
Tell ’em I’m Gucci, I’m fine, like one of a kind
Tell ’em why they look so pressed, Over there lookin’ all stressed
I think it’s time I confessed, n-gga, I’m one of the best
