The three teenage lady-rappers of Brazil’s Pearls Negras are those kids you’re not cool enough to hang with, but really really would like to, or at least glean some fashion advice from. “Make It Last” is one of the six deliciously bouncy tracks on their debut mixtape, Biggie Apple, which was released earlier this year. Pearls Nigras seamlessly trade spitfire verses and badass sentiment; the video is old-school VHS quality, as visually colorful as the trio’s textured beats. Fans of Santigold and M.I.A. will find a home in this fun favela funk. Watch Pearls Negras ruin a perfectly somber funeral (and look great doing so).
