Lotus & Glasses Malone releases a new song titled Mirrors (Thuggin) featuring Kendrick Lamar. kenny drops a guest verse on this new track by Lotus and Malone and its straight fire.
Sometimes, I look in the mirror
And ask myself, what I’m scared of
How dare the media portray me this way? I can hear the
Crowds screaming the weirdest of chants
They all in my era or that’s an error
Role model, I can’t, it’s like I’m a parrot
Apparently, I’m marking the dance
I seen done with the devil such a ghetto romance
Glasses Malone‘s explosive mixtape run placed him far ahead of the crop of “New West” MCs who emerged in the mid- to late 2000s. Malone actually grew up between the Watts and Compton neighborhoods in Los Angeles. His whole family was very deep in the illegal drug trade (his mother was convicted and sentenced to prison for 25 years). He eventually abandoned hustling drugs and gangbanging to pursue music fully. He immediately made a big impact with street albums The Crack Mixtape (2003) and White Lightning (2005), which together sold in the tens of thousands and provided a number of hits for L.A. radio.
