Aspiring rappers used to rap over tried and true classic instrumentals in order to pay dues and show off their skills. In that spirit, Maliibu Miitch has apparently put a 2017 spin on that with a whole series of videos paying homage to female MCs like Lauryn Hill (“Doo Wop”), Eve (“Who’s That Girl”), Foxy Brown (“Gotta Get You Home With Me”), and Li’l Kim on this one. If you remember the “Crush On You” video, it was an event: wigs, furs, and all kinds of sass. Maliibu Mitch keeps the sass and tones it down for her own minimalist vibe here in her own version of “Crush On You”. I don’t know how old she is, but I’m feeling like NYC circa 1996 right now and that’s always a good thing, as long as the result doesn’t sound dated. I’ll definitely be looking out for more of her work in the near future.
