Hot Coko

type:
Music
Current Status:

Hip-Hop/Rap

We gave it a C+

Hot Coko, the solo debut from the ex-SWV siren, plays like a game of Name That Diva: Too often, she obliges Mary J. Blige fans with copycat vocals of their idol while faithfully replicating Faith Evans’ smooth sound. But when Coko’s flamethrower pipes cook the chocolaty-good hip-hop soul rhythms that drive ”Triflin”’ and ”I Ain’t Feeling You,” she’s not just a sister with a voice but with an attitude.
