'Fearless' Album Release Party 

Babii Cris performs her new project with a live band.

San Francisco rapper Babii Cris is a certified Triple Threat — as the name of her first album asserts. In addition to her skills on the mic, the young artist is also a prolific producer and audio engineer. On Triple Threat, she handled all aspects of the project solo. But for her new release, Fearless, she teamed up with Japanese producer Junknuts, who created jazzy, effervescent beats with a Nineties boom-bap flavor for the project. Cris and Junknuts found each other on SoundCloud and executed a cohesive vision despite the cultural and geographic barriers. Fearless also showcases Cris’ multifaceted vocal abilities and lyrical breadth. Throughout, she rhymes about everything from relationships to social justice, showcasing her arsenal of versatile flows. Celebrate the release of Fearless with Babii Cris at Layer Studios on May 21, where she will be performing with a live band.
