There is a lot of counterfeit charm in a city where everyone is doing what they can to make it in a business that’s all about who you know rather than what you know – in most cases. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case for the likes of Bricc Baby. The son of a drug dealer, he managed to make his way through South LA by getting to genuinely know those around him, and those people he interacted with ended up being fellow emcees like Kid Ink and Casey Veggies.
That’s the thing with hip hop, there’s an authenticity to that scene, and it shows. Even when he moved to Atlanta, he still brought that realness and hooked up with Future – yes, Future. With all of that, he’s not only about connections but making his way with his rhymes and just this month he dropped the follow up to last year’s Nasty Dealer with the aptly titled Nasty Dealer Pt. 2.
13 cuts deep, Nasty Dealer Pt. 2 opens up with a laid back intro and then gets into a joint featuring 21 Savage and Reese, “F It Up.” Still chilled, this track has a Future-like essence to it. Alongside Chris Brown on “Trap out the Uber,” we hear a slick beat that’s interlaced with Brown’s mainstream ways. Also working with the likes of Fetty Wap and Gucci Mane, it’s clear that this record has a lot of power behind it, but Bricc Baby also does what he do on his own on tracks like “Activis” and “Pablo.” If you’re a fan of modern rhymes with a West Coast feel, check out Bricc Baby’s Nasty Dealer Pt. 2, out now.
