Garnering even more momentum and preparing the fans for their Steady Leanin-hosted Norfside Fourside show this week, Bouvé, Major Baby, and StupidGenius are all here to bless our pages with a brand new banger entitled “Freebies”. But before we can get into the song, we need to get one thing straight. The North Shore is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting regions in the state in regards to music, and these three acts remain at the forefront of such an exciting shift. That being said, let’s delve a bit deeper into the unbelievable collaboration that they decided to unleash a few days back.
Produced by none other than hit machines Rocktee and Lil Rich, this track immediately finds its supply of energy through hard-nosed drums and twinkling melodies that will remain stuck in your head for weeks on end. Each new verse is brought forth with exuberant energy and a charismatic touch that gives each artist their individuality while still contributing to the team chemistry in whole, and in every aspect, “Freebies” is a star-studded collaboration that proves why the North Shore is coming up so quick right now. There’s no shortage of talent in the area, with Norfside Fourside to act as a manifesto of the hard work going on up there right now.

Making his debut on Graduation Music today is artist by the name of Major Baby, unveiling his latest track, “Stereotypes”, alongside Big Baby Scumbag. Joining the duo with work on the boards is Lil Rich, lacing the two with a beat that straight up slaps and furthermore, helping to make for yet another addictive track to come out of Massachusetts.
Although he has been releasing music of his own for a few years now, I’ll admit that Major Baby slipped under my radar for a while. However, once I started bumping his music, there was no turning back. He’s worked extensively with Gruca on the majority of the tracks he’s released, and I’m a big fan of the energetic, gritty feeling that accompanies the pairing’s music. “Stereotypes” falls right into this category, allowing Major Baby to further develop that sound he’s been working extensively on with a hard-hitting touch.
This record was my first time listening to Big Baby Scumbag’s music, as well, but the combination of him and Major Baby on this song works perfectly. Each verse seems perfectly-balanced in a way that truly showcases the unique talents of each artist, and it really is a great sampler of the music brought to you by these two rising rappers in their respective energies. Hopefully we will get to see this power duo works side-by-side again in the future.
