Songfacts®:

  • Brs Kash is a rapper from Atlanta who broke out with this crude ode to a certain sexual act.
  • Part tongue-in-cheek, part seriously sung, Kash shows his affection for his sexual partner. He explained to XXL that he made the song as catchy as possible in order to dampen any hullabaloo over its oral sex subject matter.

    "['Throat Baby'] is real, like no matter how much a person or a woman might feel like the song is so disrespectful, she know one day that she was in those shoes of being the throat baby, like it's controversial," he said. "So, she can try to deny it as much as she want to, but she know that she was a throat baby one day. It don't matter if she grown and you changed your life over, you know what it is. So, I just feel like it's controversial. It's real and you can sing along. I put it in a way that you can sing along."
  • Adam Slides (YoungBoy Never Broke Again's "Rough Ryder") and Chidi "Chi Chi" Osondu (Lil Baby's "On Me") supplied the beat.
  • Lil Wayne, Trippie Redd and others recorded remixes of the track. They sparked a viral dance challenge on TikTok, which helped the song land in the Billboard Hot 100 a year after its release.
  • DaBaby and The City Girls jumped on a remix on January 21, 2021 sending the song into the Top 25 of the Hot 100.
