BabyK Osama, the rapper ushering in a new era for Jacksonville hip-hop, has just shared a new video for “Athletic” (feat. Doe Boy), directed by Diesel Filmz. “Athletic”, a hot-cut from his new project Before I Break Through EP that was released earlier in the month, is an in-your-face track that showcases BabyK’s heart-racing raps as he brings Doe Boy to add a seasoned, southern flavor to the song. The visual for “Athletic” shows BabyK and Doe Boy shoulder-to-shoulder, exchanging vivid verses alongside a massive pearl white truck and a backdrop engulfed in flames. After gaining momentum all year through his impressive single run including “Ticket”, “Dumb Shit” (feat. Jdot Breezy), “Monkey See Monkey Do”, and “Dirty Dancing” (Remix) (feat. Yungeen Ace), BabyK is continuing his momentum with the release of his new video “Athletic” (feat. Doe Boy).
BabyK Osama has captured fans with his vivid imagery, passionate vocals, and consistent releases. BabyK grew up on artists like J.Cole & Kendrick Lamar, but his influence also draws from the likes of Kodak Black and Lil Durk. He first started to take rapping seriously while he was locked up, spending most of his time in jail writing. After he was released, BabyK Osama dropped his head-spinning single “Michael Phelps Son” which was subsequently released on his 2021 mixtape, Judgement. He continued dropping new music at a steady pace through 2021 before following up with his next tape BabyK 2, in early 2022, featuring the notable single “No Drive By’s”. On the heels of his recently released project Genesis, BabyK is already plotting his next move. “I just know I can get better. Each tape, once something out, I just be like, ‘Okay…Onto the next one.’ Tracks like “Dirty Dancing” and “Ms. Stacy” portray the talent of a preternaturally gifted MC and hitmaker, but BabyK has been working towards this point with a relentless determination, which is why he knows he’s going to get even better, despite everything he’s accomplished thus far.
