Lil Mama hasn’t dropped an album since 2008–that year’s VYP (Voice of the Young People) sported two charting singles, the Chris Brown- and T-Pain-featuring “Shawty Get Loose” and the inescapable song with which she’s most closely associated, “Lip Gloss.” (More recently, Brooklyn rapper starred as the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, a biopic on the famous group that aired in 2013 on VH1.) Her newest video, “Sausage,” is a strange confluence of different worlds. On one hand, elements of the track and tightly choreographed video suggest a bit of a revivalist bent; on the other, Lil Mama is grafting herself onto the ongoing “Sausage raps” meme, in which kids disrupt whatever they’re forced to sit through at school by rapping about breakfast meats. It truly is a brave new world.
