In preparation for his forthcoming mixtape, Barnacles, SahBabii is back with his first new song in over a year, "Double Dick."
Gliding over futuristic trap sounds from Teezr, Sah's mumbled croons and floating oohs are perfect for a late night at the strip club. Given Sah's affinity for tough, animated worlds and slimy sea creatures, though, his version of the club would probably be run by sexy mermaids and a straight-faced boss with characteristics similar to Mr. Krabs.
Sah's two "dicks" include the one on his body and the one hanging from his gun, aka a drum magazine. As we listen to the lyrics and compare with the video for the song, it's clear he's more interested in using the former.
"Hippo booty bouncin' / Rhino booty bouncin’ / Elephant booty bouncin' / That ass outta control, I think it needs some counselin,'" he sings.
But we know he's not afraid to use the latter either. Boom boom boom!
Sah has been wielding a weapon ever since 2017 when he blew up with the catchy hit "Pull Up Wit Ah Stick." In a profile for The New York Times, Jon Caramanica succinctly describes the song as well as Sah's broader style as "a study in contrasts, full of tough talk delivered in a sweet, lithe, almost naïve voice."
As a recluse, he prefers to record within the confines of a bedroom rather than a professional studio, allowing him to explore the absurd limits of his imagination.
No matter how far he ventures, though, he'll likely have trouble separating from an inflection originally introduced by Young Thug. Other young artists from Atlanta like Gunna and Lil Baby struggle with the same issue.
Nevertheless, Sah was able to arrive somewhere cool with Squidtastic in 2018. It's a playful yet focused cult classic emphasized by standout songs like "Anime World" and "Squidrific."
While he's stayed relatively quiet for the past year and a half, Sah's name and game have slowly continued to leak into the limelight. Most recently, you could hear him magically refraining about his collection of AK-47s on "Amazinggg," part of the deluxe version of Trippie Redd's A Love Letter To You 4.
Barnacles doesn't have a release date yet, but we're more than ready to dive back into the Atlantis-esque universe SahBabii has created. 🦑
