Wiz Khalifa, Mike Posner, and Machine Gun Kelly aren’t the only ones flexing their rap skills on the remix to Drake’s “Started From the Bottom.” Karmin’s Amy Heidemann steps to the mic to give the fellas a run for their money.
The fierce femcee busts some boastful bars about landing the cover of Rolling Stone, performing on “SNL” before releasing an album, and getting “pimp slapped by Paul McCartney.”
“I didn’t rap last year, learned it as a fluke/ Check it, all the other labels tried it too/ Signed a couple copycats copying my hairdo,” rhymes Amy. “Stop all the comparing me, no Nicki Minajery/ Let me out the cage so I can fizz ’cause all of feminity is looking for a rapper queen/ Banking on Azealia and Iggy/ Pretty damn amazing what you do to be a star.”
The duo is readying its full-length album for release this year on Epic Records. Check Amy’s flashy flow below.
It's hard to tell what exactly Heidemann is trying to say with that line — it could be an oblique reference to Banks' penchant for Twitter beefs, or it could mean next to nothing like millions of other vague rap lines.
Either way, this is a situation where Banks' ignorance works in her favor. If she doesn't know who Karmin is, she should definitely keep it that way. Never find out who Karmin is! We should all be so lucky. Thanks for nothing, SNL.
