A sure future icon of this strange, waning decade continues her chaotic ascent: there are two new Bhad Bhabie singles in the world.
“Lotta Dem” and “Spaz (feat. YBN Nahmir)” are out now. And you can listen to botha dem right now down below.
The partnership with YBN Nahmir continues a streak of canny pairings for Bhad Bhabie, including Megan Thee Stallion’s appearance on the recent “Bestie” remix, Lil Yachty’s appearance on “Gucci Flip Flops” (which was recently certified platinum, making Ms. Bhabie the youngest person to go platinum with a single this decade), and DMX’s appearance in the video for the original version of “Bestie.”

It’s a classic tale: A previously average kid finds a piece of enchanted basketball memorabilia in his gym locker, puts it on, and immediately starts making, like, nothin’-but-net half-court free throws on the reg.
Like Mike? You say. Nah—more like Like Scottie — specifically that other genius of the ’90s Chicago Bulls, Scottie Pippen.
Such is the premise of the new video by YBN Cordae for his new track, “Scotty Pippen.” While Cordae needs a bewitched Jersey to be the best at B-ball, he needs no such mystical help in order to be an excellent rapper, and the track makes for a tantalizing first taste of YBN’s upcoming group mixtape, with Cordae switching fluidly between several flows in just over two and a half minutes.
