MITMondays: DaBaby - Baby on Baby
Recently, Charlotte native DaBaby released a project by the name of Baby on Baby. DaBaby has been gaining traction recently with a single thats been doing well, 21, coupled with creative and comical videos that are sure to grab your attention. The latest release from Charlotte’s rising star is sure to do just that. Baby on Baby is 13 tracks and spans just over 30 minutes. This is the perfect pocket in regards to the length of the project as it isn’t to short but it isn’t a hard listen either. As for the content, I was impressed with the beat selection and how he decided to deliver the stories told.
The album starts out with the hard hitting intro track Taking It Out. DaBaby definitely grabs your attention with this track with not only the beat but with his words as well. Stand out bars include,” I’m thinking about taking it out , Cause I cant pop shit with my grill in” and “ You will never hear a diss, I ain’t gon’ sh*t”. This was great way to start the project and being that this is my first time listening to a DaBaby project, I was engaged from the start. A trend that I picked up while listening is that DaBaby waste no time at all. On all but two songs he begins rapping within the first 8 seconds of the track. I don’t even know how or why I picked up on that but I like it nonetheless.
As the project progresses we begin to see a few features including Offset, Rich Homie Quan, Stunna 4 Vegas, and Rich the Kid. It was good to see Rich Homie Quan out here still getting to it. He was a good fit for the track he was on and I want to see Rich Homie Quan more as the year progress. Stunna 4 Vegas happened to be on one of my favorite song of the project called Joggers and provided a great verse too. Joggers is just a great track about what is probably my favorite article of clothing and another song where DaBaby displayed his lyrical prowess. DaBaby ends the project with the track Walker Texas Ranger and he ends with a banger. This was one of the first tracks I heard from DaBaby and like I said previously it caught my attention. Even though the song is great the video is even better and we can see DaBaby display his creative.
