A Bay Bay is a song from Hurricane Chris, a rapper from Shreveport, Louisiana. It is his debut single off his debut album 51/50 Ratchet. It was released in June 2007.
The music is typical of Shreveport's Ratchet Music movement due to its use of repeated synthesizer hooks and minimal drums and bass. The chant "A Bay Bay" is derived from "Hey, Bay Bay" with Bay Bay being the nickname of local DJ Hollyhood Bay Bay. People in the club would chant his name for a new song, soon it became used in many clubs for a new song.
The single is currently garnering national airplay thanks in part to being featured on numerous mixtapes and its catchy chorus.
