By now you’ve heard the lineup for Bandersnatch 2018, which only means that it’s time for you to get to know your lineup! Meet SahBabii, one of our Bandersnatch artists. We could not be more amped to see his performance.
SahBabii was working in an Atlanta Dicks Sporting Goods Wearhouse when he released his third mixtape “S.A.N.D.A.S.” He was fired two weeks later, while his song, “Pull Up Wit Ah Stick” was starting to take off on SoundCloud.
At 20 years old, Sahbabii leveraged social media to collect over 30 million streams on the hit song. Soon after, a former Dick’s Sporting Goods employee helped him book shows at nightclubs and college campuses. Sahbabii now tours the world promoting his most recent album, Squidtastic.
SahBabii doesn’t fit the mold of the Atlanta Rap scene. First off, he was born in Chicago and moved to Atlanta at just 13 years old. His sound has been compared to a mash-up of Drake’s melodies and Young Thug’s psychedelic vocals.
All his work features an unfamiliar vocabulary as well. For example, his song, “Eazy” uses the word “moocheezy.” No one is entirely sure what it means, but what’s great about his music is that people can interpret any meaning they want to. His vocabulary in his songs are so unique that he has taken to selling a dictionary of the words he uses at his shows.
As if we couldn’t be more impressed, SahBabii’s uniqueness doesn’t stop there. Surprisingly, he started recording songs in his living room with his older brother on a broken microphone. Now, he has millions of listeners, and fans around the world.
We can’t wait to see what he’s got up his sleeve, and we know his unique sound will only leave you wanting more!
