The outspoken voice of a new generation of female hip-hop artists: ATL’s Bali Baby shares the songs that move her at home and on the road.
Bali Baby first emerged in 2016 with her viral hit “Dip Dip Freestyle,” and has amassed a loyal online following with her ability to cultivate a new persona at every turn. There’s her R&B-tinged “Bubbles Bali,” her rap moment on “Brazy Bali,” and a feature on Trippie Redd’s “Woah Woah Woah.” On her debut album Baylor Swift she introduces a new personality, a character that is equal parts horror and sweet pop star. In this episode of Headphone Highlights, the diminutive Atlanta MC shares the songs that move her when she’s hype and throwing up gang signs, but also when she’s riding in the car with her boo. Bali Baby finds kindred spirits in Hannah Montana’s double life, “20 Something” SZA and Lana del Rey’s vintage “Blue Jeans.”
