Lil mama has made her comeback to rap with her new safe sex mantra “Sausage” earlier this month, but even though the song has a positive message, fans and critics alike have a lot of negative feelings about the new video that accompanies the track.
The visual, which resembles her 2007 “Lip Gloss” storyline, features a day in the life theme accompanied by synchronized choreography. Moments after the Walu-directed video appeared online, Twitter users have called her out for using “any and everything that’s been trending on black Twitter” and slammed her for not featuring the original “Sausage Movement” founders.
However, Mama sticks to her roots. The Brooklyn girl with the old soul gets nostalgic over the throwback beat. She hits every eight-count while showcasing her moves on the basketball court, which is quite entertaining. Unfortunately, she looses the concept when she takes on a weird homage to Mary J. Blige. The rapper puts on black sunglasses and a scarf around her head just like MJB does in the video for “Not Gon Cry.” She also takes lines from the Grammy Award winner’s song for “Seven Days.”
Overall, the song is a mashup of old school and new R&B and hip-hop, including Cheddar Da Connect’s “Flicka Da Wrist” and Pete Rock’s remake of Isaac Hayes’ “Walk on By.” However, even with all of the tributes and effort, it doesn’t seem like Lil Mama can redeem herself and achieve the height of fame and recognition she once had. There really seems to be no coming back after she bumrushed the stage during Jay Z and Alicia Keys “Empire State of Mind” performance at the 2009 MTV VMAs.
