Returning to the scene after a two-year absence, Baeza celebrates his 24th year, his first as a father, on the 24 mixtape, releasing via EMPIRE. The follow-up to his 2015 debut The Man, which boasted appearances from E-40, Kap G, and others, 24 is a versatile, smooth project for the summertime, entirely produced by Baeza himself. Featuring everything from breezy, club-ready rap-n-b anthems like “Do What You Do” and “Who You Came With,” to slow jams like “Slow Wind,” to bar-heavy rappity-rap tracks like “Balmain,” 24 suits any mood. A perfect soundtrack for driving at night or basking by the pool, 24, which boasts feature appearances from Lazy Boy and 2uesday, the 24 mixtape releases on July 14th.
Baeza released his first single and video, “Far From Ready,” when he was 18 years old, gaining him millions of views on YouTube, which he parlayed into a massive social media following.

Blessed with an entrepreneurial spirit, the Mexican-American artist is the creator of a successful clothing line called Striktly Business.
Today, the young artist shares “Stay 100,” a airy, club-ready track with a Mustard-esque bassline and infectious auto-tuned vocals. A devil-may-care anthem for those who lvoe to party, “Stay 100” is an effective mission statement for Baeza: “I’m touchin’ 100s tryna get the bands up.” Featuring an energetic guest spot from popular Bay Area rapper Lazy Boy, “Stay 100” is an addictive slice of hedonism from two rappers who commit to everything 100%.
