Rapper 2KBABY makes reflective, vulnerable songs about the struggles and hardships he's faced growing up in Louisville, Kentucky. His sparse, guitar-driven freestyle "Old Streets" became a viral hit in 2019, leading to a deal with Warner Bros.
Originally known as Lil Sage, the MC began uploading tracks in 2017, including collaborations with friends like BBlasian and Lil Zayo. A single and video titled "Like This," sporting more of an emo influence than his earliest tracks, made the rounds in 2019, but "Old Streets," originally recorded as a freestyle for online channel SayCheeseTV, ended up going viral. Warner Bros. signed the young artist and gave the track an official single and video release.
