Now only does Drake’s OVO team do pretty well when it comes to the quality of each individual artist’s output, the diversity of sound and genre and achieving some of the highest levels of commercial success, they’re also capable of building up the artistic abilities of individuals who exist outside the normal confines of music. Case in point: OVO’s latest major prospect, Canadian rapper BAKA NOT NICE.
Up until very recently, BAKA NOT NICE was immersed in legal drama and was best known as a member of Drake’s security detail. Come summer of 2017, he officially signed to OVO Sound, had a debut solo single and a full wealth of creative work ahead of him. After only three minor appearances on a trio of past Drake records, BAKA NOT NICE is ready to emerge as his label’s next star. Beginning to lay the foundations for a successful career, the former bodyguard serves up his sophomore single as a solo artist, “Money In The Bank.”
Loaded with an on-trend, contemporary beat and a AutoTune-tinged flow surrounded by a swirl of melodies, BAKA NOT NICE’s “Money In The Bank” is the sort of single that’s tailor-made for mainstream audiences. While time will tell if he succeeds at reaching the heights his labelmates have hit, his chances are stronger than ever thanks to his 2017 releases.
You can take a listen to BAKA NOT NICE’S “Money In The Bank” above, and stay tuned for more from the OVO artist.
