"No Drama" opens Atlanta rapper Bali Baby's concise new project Bali Blanco in a blaze of glory. Featuring a noisy knock of a beat from 12HUNNA, who produces across the project, the first voice we hear is that of YG, who delivers catchy tough talk on the hook, making the most of the beat that's a little spacier than his average West Coast record. When Bali appears, we're reminded just who's project we're listening to, as she taunts her enemies in her signature conversational flow before pushing her voice into a pitched up double track that brings out the eccentricities in her voice. It's a confident opener that leads to some more melodic numbers later on. Listen to the full project here.
YG shared his uncompromising single "Suu Whoop" in February. His third studio album Stay Dangerous is expected to be released sometime in 2018. Unlike Still Brazy, it will once again feature production from DJ Mustard.
I'm walking out and they are staring
And my shit red, there's no comparing
You know I'm really daring
My secrets I'm not sharing
No talking 'bout the money convos
Bitch, I'm hard of hearing
