Pinch me if you’ve heard this one before: Big Baby Scumbag drops a project, full of his trademark booming voice, lines that provoke belly-laughs, and references to a vast range of topics. Despite sticking to the formula that he is best at, www.flexedupshawty.com still feels like a breath of fresh air, especially compared to a lot of the artists within his lane. Having previously pushed boundaries on Big Baby Earnhardt—adding rock, country, and electronic to his musical palette—he continues to play with some of those sounds here and there. But for the most part, he stays true to his roots of a more hardcore style of trap. But the NASCAR Enthusiast sets himself apart easily, even while seemingly coloring within the lines through his unique style and persona. The album is further aided by him changing his style to a more chaotic and in-your-face delivery. Overall, Big Baby Scumbag is one of the best budding stars in trap, and www.flexedupshawty.com is nothing but a further example of his talent. – Alan (8.6/10)

www.flexedupshawty.com is yet another offering from the internet’s disciple, Big Baby Scumbag, and it delivers bass in spades with mostly confrontational energy. “BOBBY HILL,” “JACKIE CHAN,” and “JOHNNY CAGE” each greet you differently, but they all meet the same hard-hitting standard time and again. Big Baby parses the album’s heaviest moments with ravey instrumental interludes and catchier, yet still bass-driven tracks with more singing and a little less shouting. Baby’s rowdy energy is never truly diluted, and he manages to offer versatility among the tracklist with a decent variety of skills applied. It may not be Big Baby’s absolute best project to date, but it does come with some of Big Baby’s best material yet. – DeVán (7.5/10)

Big Baby Scumbag—aka Big Baby Earnhardt, aka Bebe Grande, aka Black Joe Dirt, whatever you call him—delivers once again on his second project of 2020. Over bouncy trap beats with plenty of Southern flavor, the eccentric Florida rapper delivers a plethora of quotables with unrelenting energy and his ever-present sense of humor. While certainly not the most consistent project of the year, the high-points ofwww.flexedupshawty.comserve as further proof that Big Baby is one of the hardest out right now. – Dominick (7.5/10)
