Bas recently unleashed his highly-anticipated project, Milky Way, which has received critical acclaim from old and new fans alike. The Dreamville signee stopped by Power 106 for an exclusive interview with DJ Felli Fel.
Speaking on meeting J. Cole back in the day, he states, “I met Cole when he came up to school at St. John’s. He was going to school at St. John’s. I was pretty much in town, as just a Queens kid. We used to actually hoop at a few parks in the neighborhood. That was before I ever wrote a rap in life. I remember one day he was like, ‘Yo, Jermaine raps.’ None of us even know. I was like, ‘Word? Light-skin Jermaine? He raps?'”
When asked which record is his favorite off Milky Way, Bas states, “Obviously, I’ve been working on it for 2 years. It’s hard to pick now, they’ve all been my favorite at one point or another.”
During the interview, Bas reveals being born in Paris, moving to Queens, New York when his 8, and being of Sudan descent. In addition, he reveals his creative process and names his top 3 favorite albums. Watch the 20-minute convo above!
