Quirky pop-R&B diva Mal V. Moo knows how to mix the best of hip-hop, rock, alternative, and pop into her music, and she's dropping her debut album, The Makings of a Monster, to showcase her skills. Appropriately, too, the album will be dropping on Halloween...but in the meantime, she's all-too-happy to tease'n'please with this latest poolside photoshoot (by Will Pounder), which is a sweet way to say goodbye to summer. Mal will be dropping the first video from her upcoming album, "Bait," on Saturday, but in the meantime, enjoy some of her earlier work while enjoying this nice summer wrap-up in our first-ever "rapper's delight" feature! -- Bernadette Giacomazzo (@berngiacomazzo)

UPDATE: Here's "Bait"!
