Sada has long-since solidified himself as one of the most original voices in hip-hop today and he’s been on a tear since 2017’s Skuba Sada. He attacks every song in an aggressive display of his quick-witted lyricism, hilarious one-liners and a style that’s solely his. After relieving himself of some label turmoil earlier this year, he jumped out the gate with the surprise release Brolik followed by Skuba Sada 2 and the subsequent deluxe version. He’s been gifting YouTube loosies in between each effort. Describing them as memorable would be an understatement.
When watching “Big Drip Squad”, “Outside”, BfB Da Packman’s “Free Joe Exotic” and especially the dance music-infused “Slide”, there’s a quick realization that Sada Baby is in his prime with a constant northbound trajectory.
Bartier Bounty 2 taps Lil Yachty, G Herbo and even Detroit legend Dej Loaf, but this project is not about the features. Sada, who is already a noted Nickelback fan, adds more melodies to his arsenal this time around on tracks like “50 SHADES Of Red” and “Aunty Stella.” That diversity only makes the capital-A aggressiveness of the project resonate more. His voice is at a-near constant sneer to match the furious pacing until the surprising collaboration with Dej Loaf that showcases a smoother version of the 27-year-old rapper. Street anthems like “Trap Withdrawals” approach standard topics of growing up hustling with bombastic brilliance. “Horse Play 2” even samples Linkin Park’s “In The End” and makes it work. Bartier‘s sequel takes all of Detroit’s current hip-hop momentum and propels it to Super Saiyan-level dominance thanks to Sada Baby’s need to experiment.
