Fresh off receiving their 2019 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, Parliament delivers with high energy vocals by George Clinton and Picasso Paid. The track’s accompanying video seamlessly mixes apocalyptic visuals, slick futuristic fashions, and the legendary Blackbyrd McKnight’s soaring guitar solos over a trap house hip-hop beat.
“Mama Told Me” is the second single from Parliament’s first new album in 38 years, Medicaid Fraud Dogg, and it doesn’t disappoint. The track follows last year’s hit “I’m Gon Make U Sick O’Me (feat. Scarface)” which garnered wide acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone and Vice.
“Mama Told Me” pulls you out of your comfort zone, and touches on classic life lessons from childhood. The track sets free the youth in all of us and rips right through the barriers that hold us back.
