Smooth rapper Baby Bash can’t recall where he got the “Bash” moniker but his alternate name, Baby Beesh, comes from the fact he used to drive around in a Mitsubishi. Born in the Vallejo, CA, area in 1975 to a Latin mother and an Anglo father who both eventually became addicted to heroin, Baby Bash had some uncles who exposed him to all sorts of music and a grandmother who took over raising him. Part of the area’s underground Latin rap scene, Baby Bash joined groups like Potna Deuce and Latino Velvet with fellow Latino rappers Kid Frost and Jay Tee.

A trip to Houston, TX, to do a guest spot with the South Park Mexican crew was an eye-opener. Bash was impressed with Texas’ support of local artists and even more impressed that he could sell his house in California and buy two in Texas.

Meeting and eventually working with Frankie J. and the Kumbia Kings was a big moment for the rapper, but he was still eyeing basketball as a possible career and selling speed. He was too short for basketball, but things started to blow up on the music side when he hooked up with producer Happy Perez.He dropped his hopes of shooting hoops, quit dealing with drugs (minus his beloved weed), and released Savage Dreams under the Baby Beesh name on the Dope House label in 2001.

Listening to everything from E-40 to Tom Petty to Steel Pulse, Baby Bash expanded his sound and released the funky smooth single “Suga Suga.” It was huge in Texas, and Universal rushed to sign the artist. The hard work and diverse influences all came together on his major-label debut, Tha Smokin’ Nephew, released in 2003. Two years later he returned with Super Saucy. In 2007 his polished album Cyclone hit the shelves.  His fourth and fifth albums, Bashtown and Unsung, followed in 2011 and 2013, respectively.

Now Baby Bash is back with his 6th offering, “Ronnie Rey All Day,” and he is in seemingly good form.  One of his first singles off of the album, “Light Up, Light Up,” features an eclectic array of artists.  With vicious verses from Texas’ own, Z-Ro and Wiz Khalifa’s newest Taylor Gang soldier, Berner…along with a rasta-laden hook from newcomer/crooner, Baby-E, this new cannabis-inspired track proves that Baby Bash has mastered the formula for marijuana-musical success.
