Perhaps we can start this off by unpacking what the word “Mbama” actually means, just in case you don’t get the meaning from the song itself. A “Mbama” is a slap, and so yeah there is no hidden message to decrypt whatsoever. The song slaps (allegedly). Period!
There is so much going on in this song, you might just get lost within the layers of sirens and machine guns (and possibly choppers). So yes, the song is quite peculiar, but perhaps that is how art ought to be. Then again it is not uncommon for rap tracks to take this direction, and sometimes all we need to be able to do is Milly Rock (or the occasional head bob) to a song. VI The Law’s bars are quite clever (we’ll give him that) and I’m positive that this song will resonate with most of y’all “TrapHeads”. Also, an uncomplicated and catchy chorus is always well appreciated, considering the genre in which it is delivered.
M.B.A.M.A is perfect as a bragging trap-anthem, it is definitely not lacking in the “overused trap snare” department. In fact, it’s thriving in that department. And we need not worry ourselves much about the meaning of the song (no one actually listens to trap for the meaning in the songs). The track is certainly a certain type of vibe and I can think of a number of scenarios in which this song would be appropriate.
