You can’t think about women in rap music without the likes of Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, MC Lyte and Queen Latifah. Well now, alongside other newcomers such as Rapsody and Dej Loaf, there’s still a New york presence missing when it comes to a gritty, grimy, ride or die female MC, which leads me to Ms. Donmonique. The Brooklyn representative just released her debut EP, Thirst Trap. Fusing a flow reminiscent of a young Foxy Brown spitting with The Firm, over current day trap and boom bap beats Donmonique is here to state her claim. Thirst Trap features collaborations from Remy Banks, Wara From The NBHD, Noah Caine, Slayter and Danny Brown. The eight track project is produced entirely by Stelios Phili, peep the funk above.
