All Your Girls Will Love This Femme Flip Of “Bad And Boujee”

Celebrate the women you know who ruthlessly demand to be treated well.

In the great tradition of women making good rap songs better is Coco Mamba’s “Bad & Boujee,” a balmy celebration of not allowing yourself to be controlled by unimpressive men. FADER editor Patrick sent it to me because his “roommate was going to a punk show last night,” and Coco — a Brooklyn-based singer and filmmaker — was opening. She raps like she’s speaking, softly. It sounds like she’s doing what she says she’s doing: figuring out how to perform on her own terms, without indulging someone else’s demands. It sounds fucking good.
