“Baba” – Aminé

My favorite fresh rapper from Portland is back it again with new music! Aminé’s latest single is entitled “Baba,” and it’s a goldmine. The track continues along the trajectory set by his first single, “Caroline,” a viral hit with 26 million plays on Soundcloud that is currently hanging out around number twenty five on the Billboard Hot 100. His latest has a more mellow, but equally danceable, sound with bouncy instrumentals and playful lyrics. Towards the end of the track, the West Coast rapper, whose parents are Ethiopian, takes a break from English lyrics and switches to Amharic to spit some game.  If his two singles thus far are any indication of Amine’s career in the music game, he’s going to be around for a while.
