Mama Told Me came out a couple of years ago with Big Boi’s first solo album, Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors. The Outkast rapper delivers some sick lines while Kelly takes the hook and provides her own melodic verse in the center of the song.
It’s hard to find a lyrical message as the song is kind of random in the words, but the general idea is that they were told how to go about becoming famous and are trying to utilize this advice to become as famous as possible. I still really appreciate the track and it has given me a fond appreciation for Big Boi.
Overall, I would give the track a 9.25/10. Lyrics are a little off-topic and Big Boi’s raps can often get a little old, but the beat is pretty retro and neat. Song is very enjoyable, I seriously recommend a listen below:
