AMINÉ || GOOD FOR YOU

It’s been about a week since Portland native, Aminé, dropped his debut studio album Good For You and to keep it 100, out of all these new school rappers, he convinces me the most.

I honestly thought Aminé was going to be another one-hit rapper but he made me take a few seats after listening to this 15 track project which includes features from the likes of Nelly, Kehlani, Ty Dolla $ign, Offset and Charlie Wilson.

A friend of mine described this young artist’s sound as a fusion between Chance the Rapper and Frank Ocean and he could not have been more spot on!

Apart from his breakout single “Caroline,” Good For You provides an abundance of dope tracks such as “Money,” “Spice Girl,” “STFU,” “Slide” and “Hero.” With an endless amount of quote-worthy lyrics and infectious beats, with just one listen these joints will be on repeat in your head all day!

Money

Money make the world go ’round
Money turn your best friend down
Money turn a good girl out
Money make the sun go South
And it make my self-esteem
But it never take my dream life
Money make the world go ’round
Money turn your best friend down
Money turn a good girl out
Money make the sun go South
And it make my self-esteem
But it never take my dream life

Tender love and care, I see the money with my left eye
Rubber band man like my nickname T.I
Labels wanna sign but the money so eh
And the contract iffy so Brooklyn tell ’em see ya
I’m most loyal to the most loyal
You can’t find dirt on me ’cause I’m not soil
I wouldn’t do much for money man (yeah)
Aminé ain’t your wonder man
Now they all, women makin’ calls
Like “Aminé, do you got that paper? Let me hold it”
Mama need a whip and my daddy need a crib
Got a phone, lil nigga, why the fuck I need a Rollie?
Black pepper chicken and chow mein, my favorite
Sayin’ you ain’t racist really sound racist
See money give a nigga rings
Then when you get it everybody call you fake

Spice Girl

Spice Girl, freaky lil mama
Said she on a diet so she only eat bananas

Always in your prime, other women don’t align
And when I’m off work then you know it’s bed time
So let’s go (hey), let’s hit the I-5
Get away from B.S., don’t waste no down time (hey)

I don’t ever like ’em boujee, that’s the type that wanna sue me
And when we get together, hit it like fever forever

I wanna know, is this real or fake?
Do I have a chance or am I pavin’ ways?

I’m tryna find a reason not to say your name
Like you, there’s no look-a-like

I need a Spice Girl
Zig-a-zig-ah, fuck up my whole world
Posh when she talk, nothin’ like old girl
Scary and Sporty, tell her what I want
What I really, really want is a Spice Girl
Zig-a-zig-ah, fuck up my whole world
Posh when she talk, nothin’ like old girl
Scary and Sporty, tell her what I want
What I really, really want is a…”

Take a listen to Good For You and let me know if you’re feelin’ this West Coast wave.
