About Baby Bash
Rapper and singer Baby Bash spent nearly a decade in the California and Texas underground scenes before becoming a pop-savvy hitmaker and collaborating with the likes of T-Pain, Akon, and Frankie J.
• Before he found gold and platinum success, Baby Bash was known as Baby Beesh—a nickname derived from the Mitsubishi car he once drove around the Bay Area.

• In 2003, Baby Bash teamed with future Ariana Grande producer Happy Perez for “Suga, Suga.” The melodic track led to a $250,000 Universal Records deal.
• Baby Bash earned his first gold plaque for his 2003 major label debut album, Tha Smokin’ Nephew. The Universal-backed album features Chingo Bling and Frankie J.
• In 2007, Baby Bash scored a second smash with the Lil Jon–produced, T-Pain–assisted “Cyclone.”
• He guested alongside Jennifer Lopez on Santana’s 2008 track “This Boy’s Fire.”
