Lil Baba, one of Egypt’s most well-known producers, is responsible for several of the Mexico Crew’s biggest songs. Lil Baba’s production style is instantly recognizable due to his combination of powerful sound picks and lighthearted musical concepts, yet he still has enough curiosity and openness to venture outside of his musical comfort zone and embrace current trends and unusual genre fusions.
His most recent album, “SEIF.,” explores the hip-hop subgenres that are becoming increasingly prominent in the Egyptian rap industry. Old-school hip-hop, drill, jersey club beats, shaabi, afro-beats, and trap are all included in the track selection.
Lil Baba’s originality and variety are showcased throughout the album, which stands out as a fun perspective on the present state of Egyptian rap. Nevertheless, the album’s numerous changes in focus lessen its coherence and make it feel more like a collection of singles than a coherent set of songs.
