BigKayBeezy released his debut album in 2020. The project – titled GG4L – introduced an ascendant star with dark and deeply personal lyrics, while his second project of the year, Bad Intentions, showcased his more playful side and an innate ability to imbue rhymes with effortless confidence and magnetic bravado. The project features his most successful track to date, the Polo G – assisted remix of booming, braggadocious “Bookbag 2.0” which has already amassed over 18M streams to date. He also recently showcased his talents on the ferocious “Walk Down,” featuring Pooh Shiesty, which highlights his ability to go toe-to-toe with the hottest rappers in the game, and on “Don Juan Pt. 2” where he flexes a drill flow reminiscent of his legendary forebears in Chicago. Still, even with these star-making collaborations and testaments to his talent, he isn’t letting himself look too far ahead. He’s taking his time, exploring all the sounds he’s always wanted to try on.
On his more recent singles, like “Heartless,” he’s dabbled in a stirring sing-song flow as indebted to R&B as it is to rap. But no matter what mode he chooses to operate in there are two universal truths: his bleak bass-laced beats will blow out even the sturdiest of speakers, and his bars would tear up any rap battle blowing through the Windy City. “I remember stealing from Walmart/Now I’m a Target/So please don’t get me started,” he croons on “Heartless.” Just like his rising fame and success, this versatility comes naturally to Beezy but it was also a conscious choice he made early in his career.
