High on life after news of Splendour in the Grass, Baker Boy’s latest track is hip hop with a bop. Mr La Di Da Di opens with a cracker line “I don’t need no butlers cleaning cutlery“ and boasts finesse and sass all the way through with a catchy chorus that grabs you from the get-go. Staying true to his community roots you know you’re in for a cheeky time. Vibing off Bruno Mars and Baker Boy’s own deadly groove the track reflects on Baker’s two worlds; the calm bush life v’s the new challenges in the urban jungle.
