Lizzo's new video for 'Batches & Cookies' is better than Gucci Mane's new mixtape

Lizzo’s new video for ‘Batches & Cookies’ is better than Gucci Mane’s new mixtape

Sep 11, 2013

Lizzo is one of a very fortunate few to tread water in the Twin Cities’ entertainment industry, and ironically enough, she’s a transplant- only two years into her tenure. When the boisterous multi-instrumentalist, emcee, and singer joined Sophia Eris and Claire de Lune to form The Chalice they tipped Minneapolis’s already-rich hip hop community on it’s head. Her confidence evokes that of the 90′s stars like the late Left Eye or Missy Elliot; her ability to flip styles is flawless, and the way she glides to and from spitfire versus to diva-like belting is dizzying, to say the least. What’s more? She’s real. You won’t find any Twitter breakdowns or grandiose stories of trap kingdoms come in Lizzo’s corner. You get raw talent, and that’s it.

In support of her impending debut on preferred indie powerhouse Totally Gross National Product, Lizzo will be hitting the road with Har Mar Superstar, P.O.S., Big Krit, and Shabazz Palaces. Check out the careless and colorful video for “Batches & Cookies,” and find tour dates below.
