Video: Matti Baybee, "Somebody"

Chief Keef's baby cousin Matti Baybee returns—and sounds grown!—on new single and video, "Somebody."

Young Legend, last summer's debut mixtape from Chief Keef's younger cousin Matti Baybee, was a blast of sparkly, sing-song proto-bop, with lyrics about stunting at the mall and other teenage flexes. Now 16 years old, he's back with "Somebody," a new single and video (produced by Marley336 and shot by Zae)—and he sounds grown! His professed love of r&b occasionally snuck into his earlier work, namely his obsession with melody, but it comes through full force here, its chorus interpolating Aaliyah (by way of Drake) over a beat that sounds like flower petals opening in slow motion. He also references Atari, which predates him by about two decades. Young Legend 2 is expected April 1.
