Early life and education
Baby Bash was raised in Vallejo by his white father and his Mexican mother; not a lot is known about his parents, as they prefer to be left out of media. Baby Bash hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, and this is why most people believe him to be an only child.
As his parents spent most of their time working, and were also apparently in and out of jail, Baby Bash was raised by his grandmother.
He credits his father and uncles with his interest in music, as they exposed him to various genres during his teenage years. Baby Bash grew up being interested in basketball, and dreamt of becoming a professional player, and joining the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played for his high school team, however, after having suffered an ankle injury, Baby Bash had to give up on basketball.

Career as a rapper

Baby Bash gained some recognition thanks to “Savage Dreams”, but mostly because the album featured various musicians, including SPM, Jay Tee and Don Cisco. On 11 June 2002, his second album “On tha Cool” was released under Dope House Records. Johnny Z and Happy P were its producers, and many rappers were featured on the album, such as Russell Lee, DJ Kane and Mr. Shadow.

In 2003, his third album was released entitled “Tha Smokin’ Nephew”, and it peaked at #48 on the Billboard 200 Chart, marking Baby Bash’s first chart appearance.

In 2005, he released his fourth album “Super Saucy”, and its single “Baby I’m Back” found itself at #19 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.
