The 16 year-old drill phenom out of Harlem, Edot Baby, releases his latest single, “Illegal” accompanied by a GTA-themed visual. 

“Illegal” is the latest in a series of hard-hitting drill tracks from Edot - flexing his signature take on the Brooklyn drill flow over a classic, tightly produced 808-heavy drill beat. “I stay breaking rules, I’m illegal with it” raps the young Harlem drill artist, who at 16-years-old is literally well under the legal age to do just about anything. 

The Aklo91-directed visual - assisted by well-executed VFX from Lore Bans - alternates between scenes depicting Edot as a Grand Theft Auto build-your-character, and scenes depicting Edot and company roaming around the streets of NY like a free-roam GTA server. The new video is the latest in a series of well-performing singles and tightly produced visuals from Edot, showing the progression he’s made since he first dropped last year in terms of the development of his sound and stepping up his production game. 

Edot Baby first started making noise in early 2020 with the release of the track “Ready 4 War” - when the baby faced, tough talking 15 year old from Harlem caught the attention of the city. One year later, the video for “Ready 4 War” has 2.5M Youtube views and over 1M streams on Spotify. Over the course of that year, Edot has remained consistent, dropping a series of singles and videos - tracks like “War Cry” “Different Shit” and most notably “Ride the O” - the latter of which is about to crack 1M streams on Spotify. Edot has also collaborated with a number of other popular drill artists including Bizzy Banks on the song “Demonstrate” and Leeky G Bando on “James Bond” - not to mention features from OMB Jaydee and Sha EK on his debut EP released this past December, fittingly titled The Baby In The Game. 

Between his almost unbelievable youth, building momentum, and a growing catalogue of well performing drill tracks - Edot Baby is definitely one to watch in the NYC scene. Check out the video for “Illegal” below and stay tuned for more from one the hottest and certainly youngest artists rising out of Harlem, NY.
