A good playlist of Michigan rappers with “Baby” in their name would include Baby Smoove, Babyface Ray, Baby Money, Baby Ghost, BabyTron, and, last but not least, Babys World, a rapper I first came across three years ago. He popped up on a track on Drego and Beno’s 2019 apology tape Sorry For the AutoTune (they were dead serious), and he stood out on the posse cut “Further Than Close” with his slightly melodic delivery. He doesn’t use that flow much on his latest project Have Money Have Heart, but I generally prefer his more laid back cadence on cuts like “Memories” anyway. Over a piano-driven beat, he describes a lifestyle of Rolex purchases and drug deals, calmly calling out the broke dudes and 30-year-olds who get on his nerves. He’s doing the babies of Michigan justice.
With artists releasing songs at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average hip-hop head to keep track of it all—no matter how tapped in they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
