Atlanta female rapper Mulatto has been releasing hit singles like "Bitch From Da Souf" for the past year or two. Just recently, she signed with RCA Records. After a hit single like "Bitch From Da Souf", she raised her fans' expectations. Did Mulatto's new single "No Hook" meet our high expectations?
Mulatto is known for her hard bass bumping sound. It is the best sound for her strong and demanding flow and voice. The sound on "No Hook" is a little different. The song, like the title insinuates, has no hook. It is a short freestyle style song. But, it is still aggressive just how her fans like it. Her flow is quality, steady, and consistent throughout the whole song. However, the song may leave fans like "what just happened?" after the fast one minute and fourty-three seconds. It definitely does not leave fans like "I want more". It is not short and sweet when it definitely could have been. We know what it could have been due to her previous freestyle style singles like "ChaseDaMoney Freestyle". The sound on "No Hook" receives a 6/10 on our Intersect 1-10 rating scale.
Mulatto did not execute her lyrics as well as she could. Mulatto has an incredible and demanding flow. She also has phenomenal wordplay. However, she did not show it as well on "No Hook". We have seen her cut up and come strong the whole song without fading out and taking her foot off of the gas on songs like "ChaseDaMoney Freestyle" and "Southbeach Freestyle". The rapping on "No Hook" receives a 6/10 on our Intersect 1-10 rating scale.
THE ART BEHIND THE SINGLE
It seems like "No Hook" is a "level up" type of song. It seems like Mulatto is essentially saying that she can talk her stuff now and that anyone who held her back can kiss her behind. The lyrics and the fact that the song is short and to the point without a hook insinuates this carefree boss mentality. She disses the reality show The Rap Game that she used to be on, disses random internet trolls, and ends the song with "work hard and pray harder, bitch that's all I know." The message behind the single is strong and distinct. Therefore, on "No Hook", the art behind the single receives an 8/10 on our Intersect 1-10 rating scale.
