Capitalizing on the recent, rightfully-deserved attention he’s received for unique regional hits like “Period” and “Fuh Nuc,” fast-rising Stockton hometown-hero Haiti Babii is announcing plans for his debut studio album and releasing its lead single to give listeners a preview of what’s to come. Known as Warrior, Haiti Babii’s upcoming full-length project is being introduced with a new video for its Philthy Rich-assisted cut “Without You.”

“With me being born in Oakland and raised in Stockton, it’s just a wonderful combination,” Haiti Babii shares with us, opening up about his reasons for collaborating with Oakland-rap heavyweights like Philthy Rich. Besides the aforementioned star, Warrior will also feature collaborations with ALLBLACK, DaBoii and D-Lo.

Haiti Babii’s Warrior was born out of a desire to perfect his current signature sound and chart the next stage of his artistic development; with Warrior, Haiti Babii intends to “redefine the West Coast” using his forward-thinking, inimitable sonic approach.

“Keep it original and authentic — show love,” Haiti Babii tells us when asked about his personal motivations for Warrior. “That’s the whole point of me stepping into this game: to show as much love and leave a beautiful legacy behind … Every second is a new sound in my songs, so every time you go back to listen to my music, you find something new — it never gets tiring, it never gets boring.”

You can check out Haiti Babii and Philthy Rich’s Josh Fields-directed music video for “Without You” above, while Warrior is scheduled to see release on April 26.
