Janelle Monáe isn’t human. First, she dropped an album that has been on my playlist non-stop for the last month or so. Now, she’s spitting hot 16’s over drum patterns reminiscent of “I Got A Story To Tell” and going neck and neck with B.o.B and Lupe Fiasco. I know this is blasphemy in some circles, but a classic album and a knack for spitting dope verses means that Janelle is creeping up on that hallowed “Lauryn” territory.
If I’m lyin’, I’m flyin’. I’m doing neither. Instead, I’m tippin’ on the tightrope.
