It’s only been a year since Tampa, Florida’s Baysiqly kick-started his solo hustle with debut mixtape Leonidas, but the Vagabonds member is already laying The Foundation for a lifelong career in the game. Just how big is he dreaming? On a freshly-released standout off his sophomore street album, the artist envisions the bright future ahead of him, and describes the work he’s been putting in to turn his reveries into reality. K Da Great, the project’s sole producer, layers soul samples and pensive keys over a driving percussion rhythm as Bay emphasizes his ambition, drive and tenacity. For more from this enterprising up-and-comer, check out his Diary of a Dreamer tape, available on Audiomack as of last Tuesday, October 15.
Update: The Foundation is no longer available for stream.
