Lola Brooke Reflects On Humble Beginnings In “Shelter Baby (Be That Bi**h)” Music Video

Lola Brooke continues to bring the heat with her latest music video for the single “Shelter Baby (Been That Bi**h).”

The track hails from her debut album, Dennis Daughter, which gives new supporters (and old) a full scope of who the Brooklynite is and how she came to “be that bi**h.”

“Shelter Baby” hears much of Lola’s braggadocio side as well as tidbits of her humble beginnings as a teen who once worked in temporary housing. As she raps about rags to riches, she clearly couldn’t fathom the life she lives today, many years ago. However, her determination for better has always been there.

“Just to be that bi**h/ It took some time for me to be that lit (Be that lit)/ Shelter baby, didn’t know that I could be that rich,” she spits while wearing a Jean Paul Gaultier ensemble.

The Ben Marc-directed visual sees the petite giant in a replica of a shabby shelter, where she raps atop an old mattress, in front of a mirror, and near bullet-wounded windows and tattered blinds.

Last year, the “Don’t Play With It” artist spoke with Vulture about her first job working in a men’s shelter and helping those less fortunate than she was.

“You never treat people like sh*t,” she said. “I’m the same person catering to these people and telling them when they could sleep and when they could wake up. I have authority to make them feel like I’m bigger than them.”

“Shelter Baby (Been That Bi**h)” hails from the 12-track project that contains the popular singles, “Disrespectful,” “Don’t Get Me Started” featuring Coi Leray and Nija, “You” fetauring Bryson Tiller, and more.
