New York, NY -- There's a storm brewing in Shreveport, Louisiana. It is a storm that takes the form of a cultural movement destined to alter Americas cultural landscape the same way the crunk movement led by Lil Jon altered pop culture a few years ago. This new movement is called the Ratchet movement and it is helmed by a dynamic artist aptly named Hurricane Chris. The eighteen year old Shreveport native is currently causing quite a commotion down South with his blazing hot Polo Grounds Music/J Records single, A Bay Bay.
According to Hurricane Chris, A Bay Bay has its genesis in the namesake of the Ratchets movement cornerstone DJ, Hollyhood Bay Bay, who spins at a club called KoKo Pellis. Whenever the DJ would come in the club the crowd would start chanting hey Bay Bay, hey Bay Bay. After a while the crowd would do the chant whenever the club got ratchet regardless of who was on the wheels of steel.
That became so catchy that I changed it from somebodys name to a slang A Bay Bay, says Hurricane Chris. Now its a word, it means fa sho.
