Breaking into the scene at 14 with her debut single 'These Heaux', Bhabie has transformed into a platinum-selling hip-hop sensation, boasting global scale fan adoration and sold-out shows across the world.

The Florida-born, Los Angeles-based rapper will bring her brash and brazen bars, clever choruses, and attitude for days to Auckland venue The Studio on Thursday 23 April, followed by Melbourne's 170 Russell on Thursday 30 April, Brisbane's Fortitude Music Hall on Wednesday 6 May, and Sydney's Metro Theatre on Thursday 7 May.
Off the back of her debut mixtape 15 (2018), which included RIAA Platinum-certified single ‘Gucci Flip Flops’ ft Lil Yachty, Bhabie headlined five shows across Australia and New Zealand and sold out all dates on her Bhanned In The USA tour across North America and Europe. She earned herself a 2018 Billboard Music Award nomination for Top Rap Female Artist, and secured her position as the youngest female rapper to ever chart on the Billboard Hot 100.
