Now, As the rise of female emcees have gained more spotlight in today’s music scene, Bali Baby continues to stay on her grind as being someone who not only remains fluid in her wardrobe choices, but in her music which ranges from hard beats to trippy melodies. After several successful mixtapes and filming her YouTube series, “Ganging with Gang”, Bali is currently on her PlayGirl world wide tour and promoting the release of her latest most experimental project, “Baylor Swift.”
