Young M.A Gives a Nod to Allen Iverson on New Song “Praktice”
Young M.A nods to an NBA legend. On Thursday (March 22), the Brooklyn artist engaged her fans by dropping "Praktice," a new Antwan ''Amadeus'' Thompson / Buda & Grandz-produced cut that finds the rapper referencing former Philadelphia 76er star Allen Iverson's famous comments about going to practice.
In the artwork for the track we see M.A rocking what appears to be Iverson's legendary mid-1990s 76ers Jersey. A.I.'s famous number three is still in place, but "Iverson" is replaced with the title of her new song. M.A has made this jersey available for purchase.
The track finds M.A doing what she typically does, which is flex a tight flow and some quick-witted rhymes. "Who said I don't go hard? Bitch, I go so hard/I don't care who got it, we still in charge/Fuck these hoes, fuck these broads, I don't got no time/Do you see my pockets, I'm doin' just fine," spits M.A, who also killed Gucci Mane's "I Get The Bag" instrumental.
"Praktice" goes pretty hard, and, if you live in the New York City area, you might get the chance to see her perform it live pretty soon. Next Friday (March 30), M.A, who dropped her Herstory EP last spring, perform at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg. You can cop tickets here.
