If you haven't heard of Thutmose, you better start getting familiar with him ASAP. He made some serious waves over the past few months and it feels like he's getting ready to have a massive year ahead of him. In early August, he released his collaborative EP with NoMBe, Run Wild. A few days later, he debuted his collaboration with fellow Brooklyn artist, Jay Critch. Today, he teams up with another New Yorker for his new song, "OkOk."
Thutmose is back with his new track, "OkOk" featuring Desiigner, who delivers one of the best verses that we've heard from him in his career. The song has a dark tone to it, but the beat and the energy that both Thutmose and Desiigner bring to the table turn it into a certified banger. Thutmose explained to Complex how the song surrounds the negative experiences he's lived through and turning them into something else.
"Sometimes it’s crazy to think I almost didn't come in this world. There was a gun put to my mom’s womb when she was pregnant with me. The song is me taking in all the negative energy and flipping it,” Thutmose said. “This is my story.”
Doggystyle to missionary or she think I'm Christian
Devil wears Prada, gotta ask the lord forgiveness
On her knees, them double Ds
Eyes low while she's grabbin' on my Jesus piece
