Baby Blue started her rap-thing quite massively and at a young age: before she even had a mixtape out, her voice and bars were featuring uprising UK singer/rapper Estelle on whose debut album The 18th Day Blue had two parts. Also she collaborated with MCs like Shystie, Ms Dynamite, Nolay and Sway and the second mixtape Out Of The Blue Vol 2 happened to be quite successful. She is part of the Female Takeover in the UK and has a distinctive presence in their collabo projects Rock that Mic and Game Over.

 

In the last two years she produced a couple of singles (Double Up, Play, Paper Haters, Run), showing collabs with J2K and Scufizzer as well as with Wretch 32. Within the ‘industry’, Baby Blue is respected for not giving up her aims and keeping on doing her thing.

Though I personally have to admit that I don’t understand the path she’s walking down this moment. She holds back an announced album for two years now, while  – to my opinion – simultaniously overconceptualizing her artistic profile [clips and interviews] in terms of styles and goals. I don’t really feel what she is doing lately.

 

Anyhow, there is an album to come up, lets see what it does to our ears and steps. And of whatever quality that output might be: without doubt has Baby Blue already been a figure in the first decade of UK’s second generation of rap, that to me is for sure.
