DonMonique is quick to let you know she doesn't need anyone, but she can have them at anytime. The first track off the Brooklyn rapper's new EP Thirst Trap is a voicemail curtly dismissing a couple for thinking she was that basic: "You's a fake and ya man's a clown / Talking slick to fly my out, he wanna see me now." The rest of the project, with airy astrological production from Stelios Phili, is just as relentlessly tough, through tales of hustling, heartbreak and being the best. Guests include Remy Banks and Danny Brown. Stream below.
