2KBABY also shares a scorching new remix of his breakout track “Old Streets” with Chicago rapper Lil Durk. The original track and video for “Old Streets” released last year, put 2KBABY on the map and garnered over 31.5 million streams to-date. Recently “Old Streets” experienced a resurgence on TikTok (over 29,000 uses). The announcement of the EP also follows his latest track and video for “FAXTS,” which released last month and has been streamed 2.6 million times across platforms, ramping up momentum surrounding the forthcoming project. COMPLEX asserted “With a natural knack for melody that separates him from most peers, he makes songs that paint the picture of a young artist who isn’t afraid of the hardships from his past, but also has ambitions to take over the world.” 2KABY details his rise and the EP in a recent interview with XXL HERE and further explains the sentiment behind the title Pregame Rituals below:
“‘Pregame Rituals’ is telling the story of everything before the deal and a little bit of life after the deal. This EP is my pregame ritual. I always do this before the game. I got to remember where I came from and what made me to get to this point. I always remember my brothers and my family, keeping my morals and principles I operate on, such as loyalty and love.”
Covered by the likes of COMPLEX, Pitchfork, HotNewHipHop, XXL, Lyrical Lemonade and more, 2KBABY is on a fast-track to success as he takes 2020 by storm. Stay tuned for Pregame Rituals.
