Finally free and able to flex his boundless creativity, 03 Greedo is ready to show the world he’s still one of the most talented artists in the game. Starting a new phase of his storied career, Greedy shares “Bacc Like I Never Left,” a new single and a resounding statement from the Watts, CA native. Recorded in Greedy’s halfway house in Texas, “Bacc Like I Never Left” finds the rapper twirling taffy-like melodies over room-enveloping production by Bighead. Switching flows as he creeps through the beat’s copious negative space, the L.A. legend makes clear that he’s been working hard behind the scenes: “Before I even got released I put some water on my neck,” he sings.
The Alamo Records signee debuted the new song during his performance at Billboard’s The Stage @ SXSW. His first full performance onstage since 2018, the 35 minute set was a cathartic and celebratory moment for Greedy, who performed hits from throughout his career, including his RIAA-certified hits “Substance” and “Trap House,” early highlights like “Sweet Lady,” and hard-hitting anthems like “Never Bend.” Appropriately, Greedy put a particular focus on his 2017 mixtape First Night Out, performing 4 songs from that tape including “Rude” and “Zoning.”
