Pusha T curated a mixtape full of new rap artists called 1800 Seconds. MonaLyse, a poet turned emcee, finds herself as part of the lot with her track "Me & My." The song is a declaration of independence of sorts, delivered through bars and vocal melodies. The artist claims Erykah Badu, Kendrick Lamar, and SZA as some of her musical inspirations. Stream the laid-back vibes below.
"MonaLyse is a poet. Like she's somebody, you listen to her records and you know that she's dialed in, super dialed in musically. But I could also let her stand in front of a stage, on a stage in front of me, and just say all types of poems and just see where her thoughts go." - Pusha-T
