Making a momentous return, Tampa Bay spitter Tae Bae is back with a brand-new single entitled “Deal” on Warner Records. It marks his first release of 2022 and sets the stage for what promises to be his boldest chapter yet.
The track hinges on a hypnotic guitar melody and jagged beat as Tae delivers a series of bulletproof bars. Leveling up his fiery flow, he consistently reminds, “They say life a movie, I told ‘em take a glimpse.” He rips through the production with hunger and heart, heating up the summer in the process. Ultimately, “Deal” finds Tae Bae rejuvenated, re-energized, and ready for the spotlight with a signature style of his own.
Last year, he unleashed “B.B.” [feat. Dreezy]. Right out of the gate, HotNewHipHop proclaimed, “The strip club friendly-anthem centers thumping bass as Tae Bae express his desire to spoil his woman with a Birkin Bag. Dreezy offers a much-needed perspective of a woman on the record.”
Right now, Tae Bae is cooking up more music for release this year. Get ready!
Last year, he turned up with the irresistible “K.A.T.” His record “Ova East” was named one of VICE’s “Best Songs of 2020”, and the DrewFilmedIt-directed video garnered even more attention. Before that, he dropped the bouncy “3 Bags” and the reflective club cut “Dusse’” with Wale. The strength—and continued acclaim—of these singles is indicative of Tae Bae’s staying power and talent. He’s spent most of 2021 and 2020 re-acclimating to the limelight after having served a nearly seven-year jail sentence. Prior to that, he was popping in Tampa Bay at the top of the 2010s. If the new music is any indication, his name has held weight all that time, and he’s on his way to returning to the top while fulfilling his promise as one of his city’s most gifted rappers.
ABOUT TAE BAE:
Tae Bae (as Tae Bae Bae) first gained attention in his hometown of Tampa Bay in the early 2010s with hit singles “Snatchin” and “Teco.” Just as he was receiving co-signs and collaborating with artists like Wale, Bigga Rankin and DJ Smallz, he began a nearly seven year prison sentence. Since his release, Tae Bae has been working hard to deliver a sound that both pays homage to his roots, but also marks a path forward. Tae Bae, short for “Tampa Bay”, knows that as he elevates his craft, he will also elevate his city. “I am Tampa, so where I go, the city’s going with me,” he says.
