If Lola Brooke is not on your radar this year, after reading this article, I hope you get very familiar with her. Standing at 4’9, Brooke is a force to be reckoned with. She is well known in the streets of New York for her deep gritty voice and fierce punchlines. A craft that began in Junior high school, has blossomed into a full-blown career. Growing up, she was influenced by some of hip-hop’s greatest like Missy Elliot, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Lauryn Hill, B.I.G., 2 Pac, Meek Mill, and a few others. Today, the Bedstuy native returns with her new single ‘On My Mind’.
‘On My Mind’ is unlike anything we heard from Brooke before. Ahead of her debut EP, the up-and-coming rapper wants her fans to realize how diverse her catalog can be.

“As far as what I have in the works this year, expect me to perform at New York Rolling Loud! I’m working on my debut EP “Lil Big Mama” that’s dropping before the year is up. Oh yeah, catch me on a Billboard in Time Square, NYC for the Foot Locker x Converse campaign that I have going on. We not letting up this year [laughs].”
It’s honestly hard to think of an artist who has put in as much work as aldn has this year. Notice how I said “as much”, because I really don’t think that anyone has been able to exceed his output whatsoever. I mean, the 21-year-old has released numerous projects, tons...
Although there are so many artists that I could mention who have made a massive impact on me this year, I think the trophy rightfully goes to Destroy Lonely. I know that he has been making waves in the music business for a few years at this point, but I...
