Atlanta’s Answer to The Future: Why We Must Listen to SahBabii
Written by Greg Harris
The Peach state has experienced its triumphs with the likes of the Atlanta Falcons defying the odds and shocking the world with their appearance in the Super Bowl, Migos having the number 1 single and album in the country with Culture, and Donald Glover winning a Golden Globe for his hit show, “Atlanta”. These things that are shaping the city’s powerful modern state continues to evolve with the younger generation. We’ve seen it in the star power that Lil Yachty, but Sahbabii who’s known his instant hit record, “Pull Up With A Stick’ featuring Loso Loaded, provides an element where he provokes mystery, a strong sense of individuality and personality, and the voice can lead him to star power.
In his most known body of work, “S.A.N.D.A.S.”, takes a clever acronym for faletio and turns it an descriptive melodic tale of the Atlanta native speaking on conquering the odds that he’s up against in records such as “King of the Jungle”, creating modern prolific and witty jams about sex and street life in “Eazy” and “Cracks and Crevices” to creating a reminiscent single that brings back the bounce of the Futuristic Swag movement with “Bullshit”.
"The difference is found in Sah’s appeal and poster boy mentality he carries with his new age southern flavor. Similar to what Playboi Carti has but it’s still rough around the edges and speaks directly to what Atlanta represents and that’s capability to balance the floss with the mannerisms of the street. "
The versatility that he displays gives face to some of the early melodies of Young Thug. Well the comparisons may be close but that’s just a basis of how they deliver their music but it’s a difference in the message because it’s a level of swag that Sah brings that Thug lacks and that’s being directly connected to the younger demographic. During Thugs ascend to the top, Thug was classified more of a weirdo that turned into hip hop’s enigma with his odd delivery and off the wall subject matter. The difference is found in Sah’s appeal and poster boy mentality he carries with his new age southern flavor.

Being flown out overseas by Thug, revealing Drake is going to be on the remix of his hit single, and being played worldwide its safe to say that it is a lot of pressure at Sahbabii’s front door. Where it may seem like a lot but it’s a level of certainty that he’s carrying through it all, sort of like it was destined to a degree. Well only time will tell, and things are looking on the up and up for this shining Georgia product, who’s looking to alter the game with his presence.
