Ever since I heard Sada Baby’s music so long ago, I knew he was going to be a star. His enthusiasm, charisma, and talent are simply infectious, and after listening since probably last year, I have yet to be disappointed by either a song or a project in its entirety. Bartier Bounty 2 gave us a mixture of old, well-known talents that are captivating as well as some new sounds from the Detroit artist like a bit of singing and more melodic deliveries, so his arsenal of talents was simply expanded unbelievably.
I was lucky enough to get an early listen to “Whole Lotta Choppas” about a month before it released, and as soon as I pressed play on the unreleased track, I was sold one hundred percent. The beat, produced by CoalCashBlac, was as energetic as it was addictive, and Sada took some time to boast some lively bars that were bound to get stuck in your head even though he never really heightened his enthusiasm as he has done in the past. His straightforward delivery and insistent flows were flawless, and I just enjoyed the song itself overall. Somehow, it didn’t even cross my mind that the song would blow up on TikTok, but the energetic basis of the song made it a perfect fit for the social media platform, and although I think it would have taken off regardless, TikTok definitely helps project it into the mainstream unlike any sort of promoters ever could have.
Despite giving birth to her firstborn son just a few days ago, Nicki Minaj just couldn’t stay away from music during her pregnancy and decided to join in on the fun for a brand-new verse on the “Whole Lotta Choppas” remix, so I couldn’t be more ecstatic about that. Nicki comes in right off the bat for the fresh new verse, speaking some prefaced words that mention how she was nine months pregnant but still had to hop on the track. As she comes in, her flow matches that of Sada’s with some consistent lines that also subdue her typically wild and spirited mannerisms. There is a hint of attitude behind her delivery which is nothing new, and it couples with the typically assertive flow that Sada has been known to use flawlessly.
I can’t necessarily proclaim that it’s the best verse I’ve ever heard from her, but it nestles itself wonderfully right into the rhythm and tempo of the song, so I have absolutely zero complaints. Her lyricism is incredible, mentioning things like the very important and relevant Black Lives Matter movement, wordplays regarding Giannis Antetokounmpo, and even mentioning how she hopes her newborn son gets to have a playdate with Drake’s son Adonis. Aside from the incredible lyricism and effortless cadences, the song also has a lyric video that animates some of her lines and truly points out the incredible bars she put together, making sure you can ingest and interpret every single word she spits.
I was a little disappointed that Sada Baby didn’t include a fresh new verse but rather stuck with the original, but I can’t be too upset because, as the old saying goes, if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. I’m also excited to see if Nicki’s new addition to the song will catch fire and reignite the flame that the original song has been spreading throughout the past month or so because I can only imagine Nicki fans are going to take this and make it into their own, whether that’s on TikTok or anywhere else. Either way, I’m totally here for the brand-new remix of the incredibly popular song “Whole Lotta Choppas”, and if you’ve memorized every lyric at this point, as most fans have at this point, you’ve got some more learning to do, so I suggest you tune in and start remembering Nicki’s verse right away.
It’s obvious that 2020 didn’t turn out nearly how anyone expected at the top of the year. With a global pandemic shaking things up, a pivotal presidential election coming to a head, numerous generational talents passing away, and racial injustice protests taking place across the country, it’s safe to say...
