1991 – MAYA HUYANA
Maya Huyana’s new record is a bold blend of beats, raps and sung songs, with effective boom-bap production and fully formed piano accompaniment.
“all black on like the mask of Zorra / if my life was a movie it would probly be horra”
I feel like she’s come into the use of her voice as an instrument more than ever before in her rapping so that by the time you get to the peak of the album “Player’ her keys and vocals combo cements her undeniability as a performer and crafter of songs. These songs celebrate Cali life and love, the work ethic of a hustler, sexuality, street savvy, music itself and more all within a pretty brief playlist so click play and go on this ride.
