Today, Inland Empire rapper GirlzLuhDev releases his new single “Mario Chalmers.” Listen here. Made for two-stepping and cruising, the single finds Dev building off the sound and appeal of his 2020 hit “Tooka.” The record clocked in over 17 million streams and spawned TikTok creates from the likes of Josh Richards from Sway House. Blessed with a slinky voice and unteachable confidence, the ex-basketball star proves once again he’s ready to take his talents to the top of the rap game.
Produced by Jestindothat, “Mario Chalmers” is a trunk rattler, with Dev’s crooning floating over the earthy low end like a hot air balloon. He laces his brags with NBA references, a nod to his past life playing ball, and he also throws in a reminder that he’s still hitting the books (“I try to log into school but I’m just too damn lazy”). His buoyant energy is infectious.
