In the vast landscape of hip-hop music spanning the past five decades, every region has etched its own distinctive genre, sound, and style. New York boasts the origins of the art form, characterized by its foundational boom-bap beats and narrative lyrics, born from the energy of block parties. Meanwhile, nestled in the South, New Orleans is renowned as the heart of bounce music, a rhythm that pulses through its streets and culture.
At the epicenter of this infectious bounce phenomenon stands Nuski Baby, an artist who not only upholds the bounce tradition but also propels it into modern prominence. Nuski Baby, whose artistic journey commenced at the tender age of 8, has independently carved a path for herself and her camp “Real Nigga Relate,” effectively putting New Orleans on the global musical map.
With an impressive following of nearly 2 million on Instagram, Nuski Baby’s impact is undeniable. Her dominance in the bounce scene over the past few years has solidified her status. However, her journey is not solely about achieving fame; it’s a mission to represent her city’s vibrant musical legacy and take it to new heights.
Nuski Baby’s influence on the music scene has been picked up by French Montana and his team. The duo joined forces on the exhilarating track “Good Summer,” where French and his producer, Rook, ingeniously sampled Nuski Baby’s distinct bounce essence for the hook. The lyrics reverberate with the energy and attitude that define bounce music, resonating with both Nuski Baby’s roots and her aspiration for a broader stage.
“Ask me how I’m feeling today, woke up with the money on my mind I’m ok But if a hater talking then it’s fuck what they say Real ns relate and you bitches all fake
Hit em with that uptown block, flash
Hit em with downtown block, flash Hit a n up just to f***k Hit a, hit a, hit a, hit a

Nuski Baby’s unapologetic bounce rhythm seamlessly intertwines with French Montana’s urban soundscape. The track captures the essence of NOLA’s streets, offering a tantalizing taste of the bounce culture that runs deep within the city’s veins.
As Nuski Baby continues to rise, she stands as a beacon for bounce music’s enduring legacy and its evolution into the global music scene. Her journey reminds us that, while geography may shape the sounds we create, it’s the artists like Nuski Baby who mold those sounds into a universal language that resonates with hearts around the world.
