Ivorian Rapper Andy S Delivers Hot Fire in ‘Mi-Temps’

Following a year-long hiatus, the rapper kicks off a new chapter with her latest single.

Get ready for a rapid-fire delivery from Andy S, a 22-year-old rapper from Abidjan, Ivory Coast who personifies "spit fire."

The rapper debuted a new track last week, called "Mi-Temps," a heavy hitting French rap that has quickened lyrics spilling over a looped chant echoing in the background. The passion and cadence with which she spits the chorus evokes trap vibes—perfect for jumping up and down, and shaking your hair in rhythmic defiance. "Mi-Temps" was produced by Ugandan/South African producer Mark Akol and mixed by Sipho the Gift.

Mi-temps is slang for "half-time" and the rapper says this in the description underneath the track:

"I had disappeared a little bit from the scene... I didn't feel well, I needed a break. Thank God this half-time was positive for me I worked in the shadows on quite a few projects. 'Mi-temps' is a big freestyle to blow the whistle of this new chapter."

It makes sense as Andy S has been gone for over a year. Her most recent track on her YouTube channel is "Hey Hey (This is a freestyle)" from July 2018 and she's been quiet ever since. Hopefully we hear a lot more from her in the future and this is truly the new chapter she says it is.

Check out the new single, "Mi-Temps," and watch a video from last year displaying more of her lyrical prowess, "2k18," below:
