The son of Sudanese parents, Bas (born Abbas Hamad) was raised in Paris until the age of eight, when his family moved to Jamaica, Queens. He didn't start rapping until 2010, and that was on a lark, after he was coerced by a friend.
Writing and rapping to an instrumental of Kanye West's 'Breathe In, Breathe Out' sparked a series of informal sessions that led to being linked with J. Cole. Touring with Cole fostered the fledgling rapper's development as a performer, while mixtape releases such as Quarter Water Raised Me and Quarter Water Raised Me II raised his profile.
Bas tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Sep 2016.
