Aminé invites Missy Elliott and AJ Tracey for a joyride in his “REDMERCEDES” on the remix to his previously-released banger.
It’s a fitting revamp, since the original seemed to borrow from Misdemeanor’s “Work It.” Elliott doesn’t disappoint, with confidence and a nod to “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).” “You can call me Rick James / I’m rich, bitch,” she raps. “Vroom-vroom-vroom in my two-door / Big body Benz look like a sumo.”
Aminé fills his verse with bars about the Bow Wow challenge. “Hundred on your wrist, so you wanna get loud now / Everything ain’t what you see, somethin’ like Bow Wow.” Later, he praises his new guest star: “Missy like my auntie.”
The rising star thanked his “aunty” for the assist on Twitter.
Both “Caroline” and “REDMERCEDES” are warmups for the Portland rapper’s forthcoming debut album.
