50 Cent Says Young M.A Is the Hottest Sh*t Out Right Now
Young M.A's "OOOUUU" has been on repeat since its release. Now, the 24-year-old Brooklyn native gets her biggest co-sign to date: 50 Cent takes to Instagram and calls her the "hottest shit out."
Fif' threw up a flick of them posted, with the caption, "YOUNG MA the hottest shit out right now, her swag reminds me of my mother. 😟 So offical, i dont like a lot a shit but this is Tuff. Im glad she from New York."
Young M.A's favorite project growing up was actually 50 Cent's 2003 album, Get Rich or Die Tryin'. In an interview with The Boombox, the female MC said, "I was 9 years old listening to 50 Cent; that was my inspiration right there. I remember Get Rich or Die Tryin’, that was the first album I ever told my mother to buy for me and from there is when I really fell in love with music."
After dropping "OOOUUU," which now has millions of views, M.A followed up with the equally fresh video for "Summer Story." A few months back, she visited XXL to pitch herself for the Freshman cover. Though she didn't make the 2016 list, she'll likely be a frontrunner for 2017.
M.A told XXL, "I feel like I should be on the cover, because there's not a lot of females out here doin' it. I've been working hard for the past few years. This is actually a great opportunity for me. I got a lot of young'ns who look up to me, so I feel like, them seeing me on the cover of XXL would basically motivate them even more."
She continued, "Plus, my music is dope. It's undeniable, man. I feel that way - I'm confident. A lot of people is confident. I got a lot of people who follow me. I got a lot of supporters, man. I think it would be a good look."
