Sada Baby, Big Sean, And Hit-Boy Throw A Mansion Bash In The Psychedelic ‘Little While’ Video

Detroit rapper Sada Baby first came to prominence with the fun-loving, goofy dances he did in the video for his breakout viral hit “Bloxk Party,” so it’s only right that he returns to such shenanigans in the video for “Little While,” which has even more potential for hit status — at least, algorithmically, thanks to its guest spots from Big Sean and Hit-Boy.

Much like the video for “Bloxk Party,” the clip for “Little While” revolves around a house party, except that now, the stakes and the budget are much higher, causing the venue to change up proportionally. Now, instead of an Airbnb, Sada’s shooting at massive mansions, complete with valets and check-ins, elaborate decorations, and a noticeable increase in the ratio of women to men, including a cameo from fellow emerging Detroit rap star Kash Doll (who should really get a verse on any potential remixes).

“Little While” is Sada’s second major foray into the techno-style drum programming that his hometown pioneered after “Whole Lotta Choppas,” which famously featured a Nicki Minaj verse on its remix.

Sada Baby Taps Into His Techno Roots Again On ‘Little While’ With Big Sean And Hit-Boy

Up-and-coming Detroit rapper Sada Baby has been on the rise since his 2018 record “Bloxk Party” went viral, securing him a record deal and the attentions of such luminaries as Big Sean and Nicki Minaj. The latter featured on a remix of his TikTok-favorite 2020 track “Whole Lotta Choppas,” and Sean included him on the hometown-praising “Friday Night Cypher” from Detroit 2.

Capitalizing on these connections, Sada Baby released yet another Big Sean collaboration today, the Hit-Boy-produced “Little While.” Like “Whole Lotta Choppas,” it employs a techno-influenced beat that taps into his Motor City roots while offering an upbeat departure from his usual gritty sound. In an interview with Apple Music, he explained the intentions behind the beat choice.

“I’m the type of artist that likes to dance and just give the energy through the music,” he elaborated. “So songs like ‘Whole Lotta Choppas,’ and this one are intentionally made for people to have fun. I feel like I do those with ease. I have a lot of them, but I never wanted that to be my main thing. That’s what people expect from you.”

He also said hearing Detroit 2 prompted him to scrap his entire debut album and start over. “Me hearing his album made me scrap everything that I had, as far as [how] we’re going to structure these songs and then put them into the album,” he said. “So nope. I scrapped it and set up fresh studio time in LA to start from scratch.” He says he’s now three weeks away from completing the recording process, leaving him with enough material for three planned mixtapes next year as well.

Lil Yachty’s Upcoming Mixtape ‘Michigan Boy Boat’ Will Spotlight Rappers From Detroit And Flint

Lil Yachty had a big comeback in 2020 thanks to the release of Lil Boat 3. The 19-track album was a return to form, highlighted by moments like “Oprah’s Bank Account” and contributions from the likes of Future, Tierra Whack, Lil Keed, Young Thug, and more. Six months later, the rapper returned in November 2020 with a deluxe reissue that featured eight additional songs. Now he’s ready to make his first big mark in 2021 thanks to the upcoming mixtape Michigan Boy Boat, his third release in less than a year and which will spotlight rappers from Detroit and Flint.

The rapper made the announcement on his Instagram page, with the following caption: “It’s on – 4/23/21… dis 4 my second home… let’s rap.” While it’s unknown how many songs will appear on the mixtape, Lil Yachty tagged a number of artists on the image, including Swae Lee, Sada Baby, Tee Grizzley, YN Jay, Babyface Ray, Louie Ray, Icewear Vezzo, and more.

The rollout for the project began with the single “Royal Rumble,” which boasts appearances from Krispylife Kid, RMC Mike, Babyface Ray, Rio Da Yung OG, and Icewear Vezzo.

Lil Nas X Responds To Sada Baby’s Insensitive Comment About DMX’s Reported Overdose

Fans have been rallying around DMX following news of his reported drug overdose and hospitalization. While many are using this time to pray for DMX’s health, Detroit rapper Sada Baby decided to make an insensitive comment about wishing death on Lil Nas X following his single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).”

After news broke of DMX’s hospitalization, Sada Baby took to his Instagram Stories and wrote: “Lord we said Nas X not DMX.”

Lil Nas X responded to Sada Baby’s jab in true Lil Nas X fashion. Rather than making an argument out of it, Lil Nas X decided to troll the rapper by reminding him that the song is still No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. “this is so f*cked up omg,” Lil Nas X wrote in response. “everyone stream the number 1 smash hit Montero (Call Me By Your Name) out now on all platforms!”

This isn’t the first time Sada Baby faced backlash for some comments he made about other rappers. Back in November, the rapper found himself in hot water after he discredited female rappers who have OnlyFans pages or were previous sex workers. “Ain’t nobody takin’ you seriously as no motherf*ckin’ artist. Care ’bout none of that sh*t,” he said. “B*tch, you known for shakin’ ass, showin’ titties, f*ckin’ OnlyFans all that type of sh*t. Whatever, b*tch. Don’t nobody give a f*ck about recordin’ no motherf*ckin’ music.”
