Brooklyn rapper Lola Brooke channels her romantic side on her latest release, “On My Mind.” The accompanying visual is a sensual public display of affection between the rapper and her male love interest. The camera zooms in on her pearly white teeth and glossy lips as she spits her raps. She wraps her arms around her on-screen boo in every scene as she mouths the track’s hook.
“On My Mind” has a mellow R&B beat with rhythmic bass and claps. The rapper’s bars are crisp and gritty with a slam poetry vibe. Her style is contradictory to the beat yet blends seamlessly into the melodic tempo. She raps the chorus, “I can’t seem to get you off of my mind, I think about it like all of the time.” Her verses feel like a conversation, casual and intriguing. Her sound is reminiscent of drill music with a feminine twist.
Lola Brooke balances the look of a dainty R&B princess with the hardcore delivery of her male rap counterparts. She is an underrated act in the game. Having received praise from Meek Mill, Rowdy Rebel, Foxy Brown, and Jadakiss, she is on her way to becoming a reoccurring name on mainstream hip hop playlists.
