Along with a vibrant and healthy class of artists, New York City’s own DonMonique is slowly, but surely proving herself to be one of the East Coast’s premiere lyrical assassins. The Brooklyn rapper pulls no punches as she kicks down those male-dominated doors with her new track, “Black Kate Moss.”
DonMonique asserts herself with heavy-handed lyricism throughout the dark and brooding track while maintaining her own unique, and refreshing style. She slays the track effortlessly with bars like, “Balenciaga Mama/Don dada proper/Cop stopper chopper, tell papa to hit ya block up/You seen me on blogs, You Think I’m a star/I can pull ya card/I can pull ya broad.”
In an interview with Complex, who premiered the record, Don explains how she came up with the name and how Kate Moss influenced her.
“The name kinda came about because the last couple years there’s been a lot of stuff going on with my music in the fashion world,” she explains to Complex. “”Black Kate Moss” is me coming into my own more. I feel like that’s a very grown title. Women in fashion, heels on, when I hear Kate Moss that’s what I think of. She was girly, but every time you seen her, she was chillin’ with her cigarette. That’s how I feel about myself because some of these girls be out here doing the most, and I just be in the cut with my blunt chillin’. [Laughs.] I’m the black Kate Moss.”
“Black Kate Moss” will be featured on her forthcoming EP, Thirst Trap 2.
