“All my first everything, my little run, it came out of that studio [Cartier County],” Sada Baby explained to us earlier this year, sharing some insight into his back-story for an April edition of our Conversations With series. According to the fast-rising Detroit star, Cartier County served as both the titular inspiration for his Bartier Bounty album and the place where he launched his career as a rapper. “When I came, [I] was just droppin’ million-view video after million-view video, I was rookie of the year over there … I was Grant Hill of the Cartier County.”
“Watching the dope boys live their life all through the city … They was rapping about Detroit shit when they first started,” Sada Baby adds, opening up about his primary influences. “All Blade Icewood’s early shit, he rap about Detroit shit; Streetlordz, [Streetlord] Juan and them, they was rapping about all Detroit shit. I think a lot of other motherf*ckers, they base or patent their style off somebody else’s pattern; Detroit people, we just go for what we know, and if it don’t work, it don’t work — motherf*ckers just keep doing it.”
