HHO: Introduce yourself to the fans
Port Baby: What’s good HipHopOverload its the God Port Baby from Charleston, South Carolina aka The Land of the Geechee.
HHO: How did your artist name come about?
Port Baby: My name came from a childhood friend, Ivan Doctor, who we called Black. Charleston is nicknamed “The Port City” so he took that, added the “Baby” to it and the rest is history. Rest in peace to my brother Black tho. He was just killed earlier this year.
HHO: Who were your musical influences growing up?
Port Baby: I was influenced from all artists in the game period. Anywhere from Michael Jackson to 2Pac…. From Janet Jackson to Madonna. They all were and are living proof that the shit can be done! Even today’s artists.
HHO: What hip-hop albums did you grow up listening to?
Port Baby: Of cousre Pac, Big, Jigga. All of Cash Money, No Limit, UGK, All Hypnotize Minds, 8 Ball & MJG, Outkast… I can do this all day… Also some artists from home who pioneered the Geechee tone.
HHO: What is the current single/project that you are promoting?
Port Baby: Currently Im pushing my new album titled “The SetUp”. It features my single “#SupPort” with a cameo from DKay. (We’ll be seeing more of her real soon.) The track was produced by homegrown producer DJ Atiyah. Also look out for “#TheseHoesOverrated” produced by another homegrown talent, Cash First.
HHO: How did the record come about?
Port Baby: I dropped “The SetUp” in leau of all the normal stuff thats out. We all need substance now and then so i figured I’d hand off some jewels at the same time keep it hood.
HHO: What would be your dream collaboration with any rapper or producer?
Port Baby: All my dream collabos are dead… MJ, Pac, Big, Prince, Aaliyah etc… But i wouldn’t mind a Kendrick or Cole verse right now. They in a certain lane right now and thats what seperates us from all. Erikah Badu is also one on my list. My dream producers would be Timbaland and Mannie Fresh. Those two always had a distinctive style.
HHO: How is the response from your fans & djs been?
Port Baby: My fans have definitely been supporting me as well as djs.
HHO: What artists do you listen to the most?
Port Baby: I’ve been listening to more fruitful music. More substance, more knowledge and information. The other stuff is cool but I’m big on the energy music brings so I’ve been mindful on what i feed my soul.
HHO: What are your plans for 2017? What are you doing that others are not?
Port Baby: 2017 is all about “The SetUp”. Im taking it places and waiting responses. Hopefully it breaks through and the world gets a load of Port Baby and Charleston. This is the new wave.
