Baby Tate Adds A Verse To The TikTok Viral Sensation ‘Period Ahh, Period Uhh’ By Britt Barbie

TikToker Britt Barbie shook up the internet with her “Period Ahh, Period Uhh” performance over Drake and Future’s “I’m The Plug,” an instrumental from What A Time To Be Alive. While the post garnered many reactions, it’s evidently inspired some artists to spit some bars. Baby Tate was one such act, adding a verse to the viral sensation.

In a video posted Friday, Tate spits “Period ahh, I’m on my period, uhh / She thought she was f*ckin’ wit’ me, that b*tch is delirious, huh / She Britt Bardie, I’m a Bratz doll, I think big, b*tch and not small / Bad b*tches to the front please, other hoes to the back wall.” The Atlanta rapper closes her short verse with “and that’s” which seamlessly transitions into Britt Barbie’s repetitive refrain of “period ahh, period uhh.”

Most recently, Baby Tate appeared on “Sailor Moon 2.0” with Laya, in addition to a verse on JID’s “Surround Sound” with 21 Savage from The Forever Story. Her last album, After The Rain: Deluxe was released in 2021 with features from Flo Milli and 6lack.

Baby Tate’s ‘Pedi’ Ushers In A New Era For The Young Rapper

2021 has been good to Baby Tate. After announcing her name change earlier this month — dropping from the “Yung” from Baby Tate — the rapper is celebrating a transition to a new record label with a brand new single and video. Previously signed to Issa Rae’s Atlantic-backed Raedio label, Tate will now be releasing music through Warner Records, and her first new song is a celebration of all things petty. A play on the word “Pedi,” as in short for pedicure, the rapper twerks and interrupts plenty of events throughout the chaotic video. “I’m pettier/pedier than my toes,” she raps on one of the verses sandwiched between the song’s speedy hook.

Earlier this year she told Uproxx in a cover story that helping others feel comfortable with themselves is part of why she puts herself out there so boldly. “I’ve always been a bold, out in the open person as long as I feel comfortable. I’ve always wanted to allow other people to know that it’s okay to be themselves too. I just like to laugh and make people laugh and have a good time in life because YOLO.”

YOLO indeed! Check out the new video for “Pedi” above and look out for a lot more coming from this young talent very soon.

Yung Baby Tate Has Updated Her Rap Name — She’s Just Baby Tate Now

For young rap stars, sometimes learning how to change and grow is the most important part of evolving into the artist they want to become. And for Uproxx cover star Yung Baby Tate, that evolution means a name change: She will now be going by just Baby Tate. She’s not the only rising female rapper to recently undergo a nomenclature shift — Latto is the second artist name that Alyssa Stephens has used since breaking out in the hip-hop world. While Tate’s shift isn’t due to backlash from fans like Latto’s was, it still represents a brand new era for the young artist.

Along with her name change, she let fans know that she’s now signed to a new label, Warner Records, and that new music is coming very soon. After initially signing a deal with Issa Rae’s record label Raedio, Tate has now made the jump over to Warner.

“New name, new label, new song drops 10/29,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

While she hasn’t shared any other previews of what the song might sound like, a tagline on the song’s artwork offers a hint: “I might be crazy but at least I’m authentic.” Keep an ear out for that new song dropping later this month, and lots more updates from the newly-minted Baby Tate.

Yung Baby Tate Encouraged Fans To Post ‘Natural’ Selfies In Response To A Troll’s Body-Shaming

In addition to cultivating a flourishing career, Atlanta rapper-singer Yung Baby Tate is apparently a world-class clapback artist, as she recently proved when an Instagram influencer tried to body-shame her for having natural belly fat.

Ayesha Howard, who goes by on Instagram, commented on a photo of Yung Baby Tate performing at Afropunk over the weekend, apparently incensed by Tate’s caption praising natural bodies. Quoting Beyonce, Tate wrote, “As Queen Bey once said, “wanna see some REAL A$$?! Baby here’s your chance!” Shoutout to all my natural bellied bodies. I see you, I am you, I love you. No matter WHAT my body looks like, it is MINE and I love it! Please go project your insecurities onto a piece of paper, burn it, and throw it away. Then go look in the mirror and tell yourself how much you are loved.”

Howard, who seems to have taken the caption as a diss to women who get plastic surgery, commented, “I’m all for being natural and loving the skin you are in but that’s not just what a natural body looks like that’s a natural body with no discipline, structure and poor eating habits in their lifestyle…Girls that work out don’t look like this.” She also equated the belly fat to poor health, which… girl, no. “She’s a performer she should want the best for herself all around,” she wrote. “[I]t’s not just about looks but in her job presentation is everything and she needs to be healthy enough to do it.”

Tate apparently had time to respond. In a tweet, she attributed Howard’s comments to pettiness and jealousy, writing, “Everyone is saying imma eat the unmarried Ayesha up for her comments on my belly but honestly her life is rocky enough. I think she saw the word “baby” in my name and got triggered so I’ll give her a pass on this beautiful WEDnesday.” Tate wasn’t finished yet, though. Next, she posted a clip of herself driving in her car and lip-syncing to her upcoming single “Pedi” on which she crows, “Real ass bitch and I might be crazy, but at least I’m authentic.”

Finally, she turned the whole exchange into a positive, teachable moment, posting a tweet reading, “natural bodied babes quote this with ur fav body pics!” Since then, she’s been retweeting and affirming followers sending her their photos, and reminding followers that “MY BODY is MY BODY to work on or NOT!”

See the exchange and Tate’s encouraging comebacks above.

Yung Baby Tate Backs Up Princess Nokia On The Flouncy ‘Boys Are From Mars’

Riffing on the popular dating advice book, Princess Nokia points out the differences in genders on her new single “Boys Are From Mars.” Offering her own, slightly salty advice to listeners, she asserts that not only are men and women from different planets but that it’s also up to women to set the terms of engagement in the gender war — and in love. Yung Baby Tate joins her sister-in-arms to spit her own clever verse goofing on men’s inability to deliver and telling girls to “focus on yourself” while doing helpful activities like tai chi and yoga.

“Boys Are From Mars” is Princess Nokia’s second single of the year after the J-Lo-inspired “It’s Not My Fault” which symbolized coming of age for “the average millennial woman, taking control of herself as the subject.” However, whereas “It’s Not My Fault” and Nokia’s other most recent video, “I Like Him,” took a techno-futuristic approach to their respective visual components, the lyrics video for “Boys Are From Mars” takes its inspiration from retro cinema instead — particularly the Saturday afternoon matinee double-features of the 1970s, which featured Blaxploitation and martial arts flicks as their main draws. As the lyrics flash on the screen, the two artists can be seen in silhouette, throwing flare-legged high kicks and waving curved Chinese swords.
