His messages connected with people all over the world and inspired young dreamers to chase after something bigger and better. StreetBaby Quon is one of those young dreamers, and he’s currently on a pursuit to realize those dreams with a full-fledged music career that is starting to gain attention all across the U.S.
The South Carolina-based rapper is on a mission to follow in Nipsy’s footsteps by inspiring and teaching the next generation of hip hop fans. His style isn’t mumble rap. It’s lyrics that actually make sense and, like Nipsy, draw the listener into deeper thought while also reflecting positivity and a real-ness with which almost anyone can connect. He’s not afraid to talk about the lowest points of his life because it lets people know how far he’s come and in turn, inspire others to make their own lives better.
“I want to be remembered for that real-ness and for having a very unique sound,” StreetBaby said. “I’m very versatile. I’ll hop on any beat. Some artists are very picky about the beats they hop on, or there are certain beats they hop on and still sound the same every time. But I’ll hop on any beat and make it sound original. I can adapt to any situation. I’m more of a new-school rapper with an old-school mentality.”
That unique style is put on full display across StreetBaby’s three newest singles. The first is called “Hood Rat,” a club banger with a street edge that talks about StreetBaby’s childhood growing up in a rough neighborhood. Slated to release at the end of June, it’s a song that enlightens listeners as to things they might have heard about but have never seen when it comes to life on the street. It’s also a song that’s entertaining and at times funny as opposed to being overly serious.
“I want people to actually enjoy it,” StreetBaby said. “I think it’s gonna be the song that gets me over the top.”
Another song recently released is “Back Ends” which is another club banger with some street edge that plays off a BlocBoy JB vibe. StreetBaby refers to it as a “dance song for the clubs and the partyers.” Ultimately, the song is about the “little something extra” a person might get for doing a job well such as the back end pay a performer sometimes receives after a great show.
The third single is “Problem” which is the most personal of the three stories for StreetBaby. It’s based on the true story of his problems growing up in Seneca, South Carolina. It specifically highlights the things that happened on Fourth Street where he lived for most of his life. He uses the problems of his past as a counterpoint to the problems of his present and uses those things to inspire others to push past the hardships and keep working toward a better life. Unlike the other two singles, “Problem” is more of an R&B/hip hop crossover with a more chill vibe.
StreetBaby Quon is slated to perform on July 22 in Atlanta at 182 Courtland St. NE.
