Born in Paris, raised in New York, Bas has a relatively global approach to hip-hop, most evidently on Milky Way, the rapper’s third and most recent album. ASAP Ferg-assisted single “Boca Raton” features a Brazilian-inspired sample from producer Sango, resulting in a low-key summer banger. The J Cole-assisted “Tribe” has been in heavy rotation on 101.1FM* for the past few months, and it’s a catchy one with more Brazilian undertones. Also performing: Rexx Life Raj, K. Roosevelt, Innanet James, Correy C, and Slitty Wrists.
*It seems weird to call it WBRU still.
