Amine Taps Missy Elliott and AJ Tracey for ‘RedMercedes’ Remix [LISTEN]
Aminé blew up last summer with his breakout song, “Caroline,” which eventually went platinum. Now the Portland native is back with the remix of “RedMercedes” featuring Missy Elliott and London grime rapper AJ Tracey.
Over a bouncy beat, soul claps and repetitive sirens, Amine and Missy Elliott rap metaphoric car lyrics as it relates to sex. Not so surprising, Misdemeanor has the best verse on the track.
"I see money, I'ma chase it / Ask them suckers why they always hating / Maybe cause your man wanna taste it / You know you like to see me when I'm naked," she raps, adding, "Junk in my trunk, gon' beat / Look back at it, I'm thick, thick / Big old hips, I'm thick, thick / You can hold me Rick James, I'm Rick, b---."
AJ Tracey also drops a good verse, rapping, "Humble and I'm British, I ain't polite though / AMG hotbox, high as a kite, bro / Rockstar life, might grab on your wife, yo / I do the stage proper, then I'm kicking the mic pole."
