After hearing Masika Kalysha‘s flow on her latest single “Masether,” fans are encouraging the reality TV star to go back to the drawing board and try again.
Just in time for Friday the 13th, Kalysha dropped a rap track using Nas’ classic “Ether” beat, paired with imagery of dogs baring teeth and the former “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood” star sitting on things, including a couch, her daughter’s pimped out mini ride, and on a boulder in what appears to be a desert setting. “Say my name, Say my name/ You’s a b**h, you’s a lame/ They do anything for clout, You use my name for fame,” she raps in the short clip.
Kalysha encourages those who would like to see the video in its entirety to subscribe to her OnlyFans page, where it dropped exclusively, but, judging from the response on social media, the effort may not be her best bet at securing more subscribers on the platform. To say that fans weren’t feeling the visuals or lyrics would be an understatement.
“It’s a no for me 😂,” laughed one viewer.
“Let it go..the beef & the rappin😩🙅,” a second pleaded.
“Lmao why is khari car being sat in 😩😭,” questioned a third fan.
“We going through a pandemic!!! Why do this to us too😩,” a fourth bemoaned.
“WE DONT WANT IT,” declared a fifth.
The 35-year-old singer has been trying to make her way onto the music scene consistently since 2015, after landing a bad record deal at the age of 18. She learned her lesson from the experience and bided her time before jumping back into the industry.
“As a female who didn’t have proper representation and was trying to figure out how to fund her own career, a lot of these men, even some of these women out here, become vultures and they feel like ‘you have the void, and you need money, I got money, and so I can manipulate you to do these things.’ And that’s just not what I wanted. So I took a break from focusing on music to focus on making money,” Kalysha told Atlanta Black Star in a July interview.
“I did not want to start putting out music or consistently working until I was financially stable to where nobody could ever try to dangle a dollar over my head,” she explained. “That’s what I did.”
“Masether” is Kalysha’s follow-up single “Cappin,” which was released in May 2020.
