  • Lyrics
  • Originally released on New Year's Eve in 2012, this was later included on Banks' Broke With Expensive Taste album. The rapper described the cut at the time as "Trap, but it's Rave. it's Banjee, But still a lil classy."
  • The song title stands for "Bad Bitches Do It."

    Fans of early '90s new jack swing will associate the BBD initialism with the New Edition offshoot group Bell Biv DeVoe, comprised of Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe. They had a hit (#26 US) in 1990 with "B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me)?"
  • The song was co-produced by Sup Doodle and New York beatmaker Apple Juice Kid, who is a multiple beat battle champion. His previous credits include Wale's "My Sweetie (Spray It)" and MC Lyte's "Rockin with the Best."
