Mai Maxi confesses her love for New York with "N.Y.N"

Mai Moxi is a Liberian-American Cleveland, OH native R&B, Neo-Soul, Hip Hop artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Her new single "N.Y.N" aka "New York Nigga" prod. by Ohio's own JaySwifa aka is a personification of her love and appreciation for New York as a young lady from the Midwest.

Dropping on Mai Moxi and notable rapper Tupac Shakur's birthday, Mai's play on acronyms in naming the song is a nod of respect to late rapper Tupac and his acronyms T.H.U.G L.I.F.E and N.I.G.G.A. The "N.Y.N" Acronym for "New York N*gga" & "Now is Yesterdays Never" meaning. What one person says is impossible yesterday can be the reality you live today. Cleveland, OH native rapper Charles Hamilton's "Brooklyn" Girls" inspired this record and the hook is a nod of respect and homage. The lyrics are reminiscent of a female spin on "Jay-Z's "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "What They Really Want" of late rapper DMX
