So here's an unexpected surprise. Amil Kahala Whitehead, known simply by her stage name Amil, has released a record in which the New York rapper is dropping bars over a sample of Jay Z's "Where I'm From." Moreover, she's singing the hook to Faith Evans' "You Used to Love Me," though not with the same soulful vibe that Evans employed. Still, hearing something new from Amil is fascinating considering the former "First Lady" of Roc-A-Fella Records has seemingly disappeared since her mildly successful run as a solo artist in the early part of last decade. Sounds like she's making a comeback. Check out "Remember" below.

On a related now, check out Amil's interview with Billboard, where she talks about working with Jay Z and walking away from Roc-A-Fella. Amil is currently prepping the release of her mixtape A Moment In Life, which includes guest appearances from Havoc, JT Money, and Killah Priest.
