A couple months after sharing his very impressive studio project Bartier Bounty, Detroit star-in-the-making Sada Baby reconnects with his close collaborator FMB DZ for a new single and visual, “APE DRIP.” Put together by CT Films, the “APE DRIP” vignette shines the spotlight on the inimitable chemistry that produced last year’s “Rock With Us,” which we featured as one of our favorite songs of 2018.
“In Detroit, you don’t send nobody nothing,” Sada Baby previously explained to FADER, opening up about how he originally linked up with his “APE DRIP” cohort FMB DZ. “If you’re gonna do a song with a n***a, you gon’ pull up. Me and DZ met ‘cause his manager is my cousin. Us being damn near the same age and being the youngest niggas out, we just clicked. Our shit started taking off at the same time. We literally went from ashy, no jewelry, rerocked clothes, to clean shit together. Our hair was even short together type shit.
“I freestyled for a long ass time. That’s all I used to do growing up: freestyle for hours and hours, say a bunch of sweet shit and then never remember it the next day,” Sada Baby added, elaborating on his start in rap. “Taking it serious and actually rapping? About four or five years ago. I was rapping with my right hand mans, Tooda Man. He was really the only reason I was rapping.”
