Remember “Harlem Shake”? Not the dance, but the electronic trap track that created a worldwide meme frenzy and made everyone hate that song. Before accidentally damaging his career with a viral hit, Baauer was a respected producer, working with Chuck Inglish and other rappers.
Now, the Connecticut producer is back with an equally bass-heavy track featuring UK emcee Novelist and New York rapper Leikeli47. Each rapper gets a verse on “Day Ones,” with Novelist setting a masterfully grimy tone and Leikeli47 following up with some savage bars.
Baauer’s debut album drops March 18. Are you feeling this rowdy track?
Before you cross that bridge better look both ways eh?
Like D-Rose we play no games, it's Brooklyn all day ay
See I tried to tell em before
they didn't understand but they do now
so now whenever they call
they gotta listen to the long beep now
