Kali — “MMM MMM” feat. ATL Jacob

Kali knows how to capitalize on a viral moment. The Atlanta rapper’s “Do A Bitch” single swept social media, and spawned a slew of carefully crafted remixes, featuring DMV rage queen Rico Nasty, 1017’s Enchanting, and more. The Fine Tuned alum released her EP This Why They Mad Now in February of 2020, which we described as having “a relaxed bravado and capacity for making bars about someone’s unfaithful boyfriend being obsessed with her IG page sound cool.”

With ATL Jacob on the beat, Kali returns with “MMM MMM.” The single continues her streak of nonchalant bangers, meant to inspire listeners to hit ‘em with the… You get it. The backbone of “MMM MMM” is a low-key plodding bassline, which provides the perfect space for Kali to deliver her brags just above a whisper. It feels like she’s sharing the secrets of bad bitchery with just us.

“I was bored, at the studio house in Miami with Jacob and he likes to record all the time and I was having writer’s block so he was like, ‘Let’s just get into the studio,’ and try to figure something out,” Kali tells Audiomack of the making of “MMM MMM.” “I went into the studio and he was making a beat and I was like, ‘Mmm mmm. I’m having writer’s block. Mmm mmm.’ And then I was like, ‘Wait, that kind of go off the beat! Mmm mmm. I’ve never heard nobody come up with a song like that.’ He said, ‘Let’s figure it out in the booth.’ And that’s exactly what I did.”
