But, when she dropped the video for her comeback song "Sausage" this week, the rapper proved that theory wrong. In the video, which debuted on World Star Hip-Hop Thursday, Lil' Mama raps about safe sex, channels Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson and Madonna, appears to have a Jamaican dancehall party and shows off her "mean" strut, among many other things.
"Eggs, bacon, grits (sausage!) / you better use a condom if you taking that (sausage!)," Lil Mama says in the lyrics, referencing the popular #SausageMovement on Vine. This song marks the former America's Best Dance Crew judge's first released track in more than five years, and when Twitter got wind of it, it turned into a top trending topic.
"Lil mama just doesn't allow herself to be defeated. that's admirable," one user tweeted. "I didn't finish the Lil Mama video because I got tired. I had to lay down," someone else said. Essentially, Twitter went in on the video:

And someone else wrote, "I actually like the Lil Mama video."
