Joyner Lucas might have one of, if not the best, stage name in hip-hop. (Yes, I know, I’m biased because of his last name.) Rest assured, his alias isn’t the Massachusetts native’s only attractive quality; he can rap his a** off too. You might be expecting a wild, club/trap anthem with a song title like Lame Hoes, but don’t judge this book by it’s cover. With a powerful, crystal-clear delivery, Joyner takes aim at a two-timing, scandalous, and generally unpleasant lady, but his description could fit more than just that one girl; they are problems that are all to familiar for many women. Males aren’t safe from his astute social commentary either; atop producer One Tone‘s soulful boardwork, Lucas goes in on his equally-as-scheming male counterparts. Lame Hoes is not (yet) part of anything larger, but if you’re in the mood for more of his work we suggest I’m Not Sorry.
