Dreams come true. At the age of 12, Baby Money imagined himself as a famous rapper in the future, and never let go. He grew up artistically in Detroit’s hyper-competitive music scene. His commitment and belief in him paid off over time. Especially around 2021, when its popularity started to increase, thanks to the single “Moncler Bubble” and the project Young nigga, old soul. Baby Money is a sharp, technical rapper with a good sense of humor who spits on making money and showing off like it’s second nature. His style is reminiscent of early Detroit rap, but his ever-updating flows bring him back to the present.
The noise he made locally in his hometown of Detroit began to spread beyond the city’s borders, which put him on the radar of Atlanta’s independent label Quality Control Music. At the level Baby Money was rising to, there were plenty of record labels that wanted him on their team. While being clear about their intentions, QC met the rap newcomer where he was. This base of trust, along with Baby Money respecting the label’s reputation for promoting artists to an acclaimed level in the music industry, sealed the deal. Baby Money’s contract with QC was announced in January this year, and easy moneyhis first project with the label, was released the following month.
It felt like the new deal propelled him forward, as the time between the 2022 efforts easy money and new money, which arrived last week, showed clear growth. Now Baby Money seems more comfortable and fully embraces his path. At the end of the day, his preteen dream came true, with one of rap’s most famous labels behind him.
Prior to their most recent project, Baby Money recorded for The break: live to talk about his arrival. Check out the interview below.
