Ok I know you’re like Laiya you must know this girl.  Yes I do!  That’s why I know how dope she is.  On her new mix tape she not only attacks Lorde’s “Loyal” remixing it to “We Already Royal”, she also remixes RiRi’s “Pour It Up” to “Student Loans”, she even remixes “Happy” for her own “Nappy” I love this girl!  For me Maimouna makes real KEEP IT REAL music.  Maybe that could be a new genre lol,  “Reality Music”.  Log on to her website to check out her new mix tape, The Reintroduction of Mumu Fresh hosted by Common’s DJ, DJ Dummy.  But check out her new video for “We Already Royal” that was directed my another homie of mine and Common collaborator, Brian Kyle.
