“We didn't have shit,” 2KBABY says of his upbringing in Louisville. “We were really starving. That shit's fucked up.” You don’t need to read interviews to get acquainted with the life story of the 19-year-old rapper, though. 2KBABY puts it all in his music. With a natural knack for melody that separates him from most peers, he makes songs that paint the picture of a young artist who isn’t afraid of the hardships from his past, but also has ambitions to take over the world. Over the past few months, he’s been getting buzz for tracks like “Old Streets” and “Dreamin,” which show his effortless ability to write sticky hooks that have a way of climbing inside your brain and never leaving. And he says he already has songs with collaborators like Sonny Digital and DaBaby in the can, so it looks like Masked Records’ first signee will only build on his momentum in 2020. —Eric Skelton
