There’s a moment on her new song “Art” when the Vancouver-based, self-proclaimed "fetish rapper" Tommy Genesis drawls: Are you Awful born and bred? It’s not only a call for deviance, but a shout-out to Awful Records—the independent label and community of DIY artists ruled over by cult rap producer Father that she joined last year. We are children of the internet she sings over a slick trap beat, and it serves as a reminder that the self-proclaimed Baby Awful owes much to the internet for uniting the Vancouver-based creative polymath with her Atlanta-based crew. The track is the delicious first taste from Genesis’ second full-length project, World Vision 2, set for release at the end of this month.
