Quality Control songstress Lakeyah drops her first solo release of 2023, Want Em Hood. The fresh track is a fearless rework of Gorilla Zoe’s 2007 hit record Hood N*gga and combines pearl-clutching rhymes with brazen confidence. Rich with sparse trap production and her signature brand of braggadocious rap, the self-described “Female Goat” instantly envelopes the listener with a sharp cadence. Behind the track, Lakeyah explains:

‘Hood N****’ is one of my favorite tracks that was leading the early 2000s. That was my favorite era of music and I wanted to exude that fun, feel-good but braggadocious vibe. ‘Want Em Hood’ is perfect for the summer and it’s empowering for my guys and girls. We love 'em from the hood!”

Released last month ADD IT Up continues it momentum. Having gotten cosigned by Kash Doll this new tempo is becoming a fan favorite. Not to mention, Lakeyah is gearing up for the return of BET's unscripted reality series The Impact Atlanta, doubling back for season two after a successful run with season one. Stay tuned for Lakeyah and follow her on Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube. Listen to the official video below and stream the single here.
