New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 23, 2004–Baby Bash’s first release from Universal Records, Tha Smokin Nephew has been RIAA certified for GOLD this week, with sales over 500,000 copies. The CD continues to hold strong on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart displaying a steady growth in sales after appearing on the chart for over 22 weeks.

To piggyback from his recent success, Baby Bash has gone back to lab and is set to release Tha Smokin Nephew Chop and Screwed March 4. The “chop and screw” method is a popular Southern formula crafted by the late DJ Screw, which slows down the track of every song creating the ultimate car cruising rendition.

Baby Bash made his way on to the Billboard charts in his first week of release with Tha Smokin Nephew. The hip-hop newcomer entered at #48 on the Top Albums Chart and #24 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart.

The first single from Tha Smokin Nephew, “Suga Suga,” has been on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart for 25 weeks. “Suga Suga” made upward moves from #10 before peaking at #7 on the Hot 100 Airplay chart and #6 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart, which Bash has remained on for over 20 weeks. “Suga Suga” has also garnered top ten positions on the Rap Singles Chart and Single Sales Chart where these positions held for more than 4 weeks in a row.

Bash recently completed a US tour featuring such heavyweights as Ludacris, Chingy and Bubba Sparxx. Bash had made numerous television appearances ranging from the #1 rated morning show Live With Regis and Kelly to The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Wayne Brady Show, On-Air With Ryan Seacrest, The Sharon Osbourne Show and Soul Train. With a hit single and a Gold record, it is apparent that this Houston rapper is no screw up!
