iTunes Editors’ Notes

An often-hectic collision of Top 40 pop and R&B, Southern rap bluster, and New York attitude, VYP is nothing short of a rollercoaster ride. “Lip Gloss” and “Shawty Get Loose” are the requisite club missiles, but “G-Slide” is even more ferocious — a slab of Atlanta crunk done New York style, complete with a chorus that comes down as heavy as death metal. On the other end of the spectrum, there's the throbbing, stuttering “Stand Up,” and the breezy island New Wave of “Truly In Love,” two songs that echo the Caribbean flavors of Lil’ Mama’s native neighborhood. This Brooklynite can still kick a fierce rhyme, as she does on the uproarious “What It Is:” “And I ain’t tryna brag to you / And I definitely ain’t tryna keep up, cause I’m ahead of you / What, rap and I’ll murder you / Magic with a verse’ll do.” As the album careens from the nasty club music of “Make It Hot” to the soul of “Broken Pieces” to the caffeinated cattiness of the Avril Lavigne duet “Girlfriend,” it becomes hard to discern the real Lil’ Mama through all the costume changes. Then again, it might just be her taste for teenage capriciousness that ultimately confirms Lil’ Mama’s role as the “Voice of the Young People.”

Customer Reviews

AMAZING

She's such in insperation and should be a huge hit and it shocks me she isn't. The album is a must buy

No longer known as "the Lip Gloss Girl"!

This album will bring Lil Mama BIG TIME fame! It's full of soon-to-be hits that will soon become number one! I LOOOOOVE "Shawty Get Loose" it has such a good beat and Lil Mama, Chris brown and T-Pain worked very hard on it!"College" talks about how Lil Mama decided not to go to college! The title of this albumsays it all!

Oh, Jesus Christ, WHY???

First of all, there are WAY too many tracks for it to be a real album (11-13/14, please). Second of all, even if there were less tracks, it still would not be a REAL album. But, then again, since when were Hip-Hop/Rap albums real? What I mean by "real", is that this genre is downright degrading to music and shouldn't even exist! My aunt told me that rap used to actually be good but now it's not. Hmm, I wonder what THAT rap sounds like, but whatever. All hip-hop and rap is about is sex, doing drugs, killing people, etc., and it MUST GO!!!!! This "album" and this "artist" are a PERFECT example of why the music industry is going downhill these days.

Biography

Jumping onto the airwaves at 17, Lil Mama cleared a wide path for herself with the major radio hit "Lip Gloss" in early 2007. Raised in both Brooklyn and Harlem, Niatia Kirkland grew up with seven other siblings. She found solace in writing poetry as well as dance choreography. But with the encouragement of her father, who owns the record label Familiar Faces, she knew that being a hip-hop artist could enhance both of those interests. Joining her father's label, she traveled to Atlanta in 2006 to...
