What a difference a year makes. Much has changed since the last time I spoke with SahBabii not quite twelve months ago—back when people were still allowed to go outside and Purell was cheaper than kush. At the time the soft-spoken trap surrealist was considering retirement at age 22. “I’m working on Wolverine right now,” he said in April of 2019. “That might be my last project.” Squidiculous as it may sound, that was how he really felt. But much to the delight of his dedicated fans, the artist born Saaheem Malik Valdery caught a second wind late last year. Evidence of fresh inspiration appeared via Twitter on October 11. “I’m still dropping this month,” he tweeted out of nowhere, followed a month or so later by this: "Bitch We Go Mufuckin BarNacles."
