Lil Baby might be one of the most efficient acts in hip-hop at the moment. Last year, the Quality Control emcee dropped off a total of four full-length projects, including the first parts of his “Hard” series with Harder Than Hard and Too Hard.
This year Baby didn’t slow up, coming through with his debut studio album Harder Than Ever and slid through with the highly-anticipated Drip Harder collaborative effort with Gunna—seemingly the only other rapper of the same bracket whose work ethic could touch Lil Baby’s.
Now as Baby’s Street Gossip mixtape has been unleashed, the duo has expectedly collided once more for a track off the project, hopping over a Metro Boomin soundscape on “Ready.”
The formula doesn’t change much as the two wade in familiar waters, trading off on lyrical flexes, keeping baguettes and panoramic ceilings front of mind.
I can't fuck with none of y'all niggas, y'all disgust me
When you with your maggot ass friends, don't discuss me
FN with extended clip, I hope them try to rush me
I hear 'em sayin' such and such, a nigga ain't gon' touch me
Big body Benz, 'member I used to be dusty
Now I want my money all hundreds in a rush please
