Skilla Baby Hits with G Herbo Assisted Single ‘B’cuz’

Detroit rapper Skilla Baby returns with “B’Cuz,” a hypnotic new single that pairs him with the Chicago legend G Herbo. Listen HERE via Hitmaker Music Group/Blac Noize! A lead in to the forthcoming deluxe edition of last year’s We Eat the Most, “B Cuz” is available now at all digital retailers. The single premiered on BET JAMS Billboard in Time Square.

In the same way that the rappers’ voices intertwine and compliment each other, “B’Cuz” is full of references to John Wick and impulse-purchased chinchilla coats that are counterbalanced by references to the real-life violence that still seems to lurk around every corner. “Don’t mean I ain’t paranoid just ‘cause I’m not in the hood,” Herbo raps during the hook, before Skilla takes it upon himself to clarify that that doesn’t mean they’ve changed: “I’ve been trying to chill, but I still will get on some hood shit.”   

“B’Cuz” arrives just weeks after the menacing single “Ok Bet” and Controversy, the full-length project that pairs him with fellow Detroit native Tee Grizzley. Prior to that, Skilla had dropped “Marty McFly,” which demonstrated Skilla’s singing ability and came complete with a Back to the Future-themed video.

The rapper previously made waves with 2022’s We Eat the Most. The 7-song set cemented his credentials as one of the most insightful newcomers in hip-hop. Whether decoding social media posts (“Duck Your Taco”) or recounting hardships (the hit single “Tay B Style”), Skilla always approaches topics from a unique angle.

A protege of hometown hero Sada Baby, Skilla is carving out a lane as one of the Motor City’s most distinct voices. Though just 24 years old, the MC has amassed an impressive body of work, beginning with Push That Shit Out Skilla, his careening debut album from 2019. Three tapes followed in 2022, We Eat the Most, Detroit Raised Me, and Crack Music 2, underlining his reputation as one of the genre’s most enthralling and prolific artists.
