Persuaded by his friend, Bas has entered the hip-hop scene in 2010—releasing his first-ever mixtape 'Quarter Water Raised Vol. 1' in 2011. He's recently achieved his first RIAA Gold Certified single with his 2018 smash hit 'Tribe'. More recently, he's contributed to J.Cole's latest project 'Revenge of the Dreamers III' which received strong praise from Pitchfork and includes appearances from the likes of Vince Staples, Ty Dolla $ign, T.I., Mez, Reason and Smino. He has featured on four of the album tracks: 'Down Bad', 'Don't Hit Me Right Now', 'Self Love' and 'Costa Rica'. For Bas, touring with Cole fostered his development as a performer, whilst launching project releases (such as 'Quarter Water Raised Me II', 'Last Winter' and 'Too High To Riot') elevated his profile.
Released last year, Bas' third and most recent album 'Milky Way' was met with critical acclaim—with DJ Booth calling it "a unique sonic experience" and HipHopDX praising it for its "solid production, solid sound and great vibes." His latest EP 'Spilled Milk Vol. 1' came out last August 9 and it includes a collaboration with fellow label artists JID, Ari Lennox and Earthgang.
