“I’m intelligent black, gifted as well, strike harder than the hammer when it’s hittin’ the nail.”
Roc Marciano‘s “Snow” was the backdrop for an 8-year-old rapper’s jaw-dropping debut.
In a clip that went semi-viral earlier this week, fellow Long Island MC, Amahli Selassie, introduced herself with bars beyond her years, delivering a veteran flow with air-tight cadence over the minimalistic Marcberg standout. The performance has already garnered praise from Rapsody, who dubbed Selassie “the future” in a tweet. Other reactions range from marveling over word economy to genuine anticipation of an album. It’s probably too early to talk figures, but Selassie is certainly earning the right attention.
Watch Amahli Selassie light up Roc Marciano’s “Snow” with all-pro bars in the clip below. Hold tight for her next transmission.
