Amine’s debut studio album “Good For You” is the bomb diggity! From the triple platinum banger “Caroline” to “Spice Girl’, American rapper from Portland, Oregon, Amine, has us all in love with his upbeat vibes and sultry raspy voice. The album features samples from Ty Dolla $ign on “Veggies”, Nelly on “Yellow”, Offset on “Wedding Crashers”, Charlie Wilson on “Dakota”, and Kehlani on the bonus track “Heebiejeebies”. ‘Good For You’ has an extremely lighthearted mood similar to the cover infused with dope polyphonic synths, glossy melodies, and just the right touch of AutoTune. Mad credits to Amine for his visionary and clever bars on the slower more mystical tracks like “Sunday” and “Turf” where he gets introspective to “Money” where he critiques materialism.
Top 3 Favorite Lyrics from the Album:
“Let’s get gory/Like a Tarantino movie/Don’t wanna talk it out, can we fuck it out?/’Cause we gon’ be up all night, fuck a decaf/You say I’m a tall thug, guess I’m a G-raffe/If ya want safe-sex, baby use the knee pads/Freaky with the sticky icky/Baby give me kitty kitty” – Caroline by Aminé
“I wouldn’t do much for money man/Aminé ain’t Juwanna Man/Now they all, women makin’ calls/Like, ‘Aminé, do you got that paper? Let me hold it’/Mama need a whip and my daddy need a crib/Got a phone, lil nigga, why the fuck I need a Rollie?/Black pepper chicken and chow mein, my favorite/Sayin’ you ain’t racist really sound racist” – Money by Amine
“Stuntin’ with my dogs like my first name Cruella/Black girls love me ’cause a nigga got some feta/And white girls love me like my first name Coachella” – Yellow by Amine
