The son of Sudanese parents, Bas was raised in Paris until the age of eight, when his family moved to Jamaica, Queens. He didn’t start rapping until 2010, and that was on a lark, after he was coerced by a friend.

Touring with Cole fostered the fledgling rapper’s development as a performer, while mixtape releases such as Quarter Water Raised Me and Quarter Water Raised Me II elevated his profile.

Cole signed Bas to Dreamville releasing Last Winter, jokingly referred to as “An album from a n*gga who ain’t got alotta fans yet”. It was released as a digital download and a CD in April 2014.

Bas talks 'Milky Way' with Complex

Complex sat down with Bas to talk about his new project, what it was like working with World Series champion Jose Altuve, and plans to release more music with his labelmates.

Full Interview

Milky Way

This is Bas 3rd studio album. ‘Milky Way’ is about finding ground. About not poisoning your own well. About finding and tethering yourself to the love that truly fulfills you. That is the Milky Way. The only way to go.





Bas and J. Cole Celebrate Good Fortune In 'Tribe'

Though understated, there’s a special kind of lightning that strikes when J. Cole and Bas get on a track together. The Dreamville members (Bas was signed to J. Cole’s label in 2014) have a knack for playing off each other from one verse to the next in a way that sounds like old friends catching up over drinks on a porch sill. With past singles like 2013’s “New York Times” and 2016’s “Night Job” under their belts, the pair add another track to their collaborative catalog with “Tribe.”
