Yung Miami Breaks Down The Wildest "Rap Freaks" Name Drops

A week after appearing on Quavo’s Freaknik-inspired single “Strub The Ground,” City Girls rapper Yung Miami doubled back with a solo track of her own. Titled “Rap Freaks,” the brief new track finds the Florida rapper name-dropping several of the most popular artists in the music industry, from Tory Lanez, DaBaby, and Megan Thee Stallion to Diddy, Cardi B, and Nicki Minaj.
