Most of us come into this world with nothing to prove. Over the course of our lives things fall into shape and bam! We push ourselves in ways we never imagined.
Shootah Baby has become the personification of the grind as he’s worked endlessly to prove to all those who doubted him that he could indeed to it.
He showcased that poignantly in “Applying Pressure” A single that was not only his introduction to the world, but a proclamation that he’d arrived.
Influenced by Lil Wayne’s array of beats and the hustler that is Gucci Mane,Shootah Baby has built a sound for himself that is one part emcee, two parts businessman.
He’s a self-proclaimed workaholic that doesn’t quit when times get tough. Those times only drive him to work harder.
That hard work is what led him to being recognized by DJ Steph Floss, and playing SXSW a few years back. Since then he’s toured the Midwest, including his recent 2017 summer run throughout Ohio.
