With a rep for top notch bars under its belt and a hub for legendary creatives with lengthy careers, New Jersey serves any MC following in its footsteps with big shoes to fill. Thankfully, with her new video “Issues”, the Newark phenomenon known as Pineapple CITI is proving to be up for the task.
Bouncing effortlessly between modern flows to make the trap bounce and the kind of classic cleverness that the lyric-lovers get hype over, CITI gives both sides the full package. With the prestigious Billboard Magazine showing love with a premiere and the world renowned Clinton Sparks co-signing as well, it looks like her competition will be dealing with “Issues” for quite some time.
