With millions of YouTube views and an official co-sign from legendary emcee Bun B, 12-year-old rapper The Girl Lay Lay’s career is on the rise, and she hasn’t even learned to drive yet.
The Houston native recently released a new music video for his upbeat track, “Rich,” which features Bun B, the aforementioned UGK symbol. The material, on the other hand, is not what you would expect.
Rather than brag about her possessions (despite the fact that she wears a fat link chain in the video), Lay Lay discusses a number of topics related to her ability to amass wealth by the time she reaches adulthood. Lay Lay also sends out messages that are in line with the Black Lives Matter movement, such as asking cops to leave kids alone while they play hopscotch, tag, and other playground sports. “We don’t want any smoke with the cops,” she adds respectfully.
Bun B checks in providing wise rhetoric in which he spells out the many duties parents take on when raising their children. He emphasizes the sacrifices it takes on either the part of the child or the adult to ensure the former has an opportunity to be “Rich” one day.
