This is different.
Unlike most records we’ve heard from her over the year, Elle raps instead of sings on her latest release.
“These are the woes of a 20 something year old, single black female addicted to retail,” raps Elle. “Wondering what life would be like if I was a hoe/ If I would’ve gave it up to everybody that wanted some, my Louboutin count would be at 101/ and rent? I’d never pay that sh*t again.”
4 Letter Word still has no release date, but will reportedly feature an interlude by Taraji P. Henson’s Empire character Cookie.
In the meantime, listen to Elle spit a couple of bars below.
