UNDERVIEWS Exclusive: Hey Baby by Squiint
It wasn’t until sometime mid-2018 when I had the chance to meet the experimental artist known as Squiint.
During one of RentsDue’s infamous Aux Wars events, smugly and confidently, Squiint presented to the panel with his tunes. It sparked enough interest in me that I started following Squiint and his teammates on Twitter right away. Since then, his charismatic character and A+ quality Tweets (and TikTok’s) have led us to build a relationship beyond than merely acquaintances.
Born in Miami Springs, Squiint has elaborate understanding of Florida culture. Squiint was raised in Dade County, currently residing in Broward. Throughout his life, Squiint has been able to experience various cultures in Florida—being one of America’s hotspots for diversity—allowing him to create a unique style and sound that backs his strong personality.
Since elementary school, he was surrounded by music. Squiint’s music features heavy rock-like influence, telling me recently that “I’ve been around music since elementary school pretty much, middle school did orchestra and in high school I was in Marching Band. Towards the end of high school I was rocking in both a Metal band and a Ska band.”

Squiint mixes various genres to create a unique sound within his music. Claiming the title of “Best out of Miami Springs” and “Scene Kid Overlord,” his unique style and appearance (not to mention his extremely comedic personality) makes him a unique and remarkable entertaining person to follow on social media.
Like many of today’s independent artists and “SoundCloud Rappers,” Squiint prides himself with the fact that he is fully responsible for his media. Being a consummated drum player among many things, Squiint manages everything, artistically and producing: he creates his cover art, shoots and edits his own videos, writes his own songs, manages the marketing—all while maintaining his comedic and charming internet personality.
A quite impressive feat from an indie artist.
Today, we present Squiint’s new single Hey Baby as an UNDERVIEWS exclusive. I personally reached out to Squiint to offer him a promotional plan for his track, following his hilarious unintentional promo seen below:

In under 2 minutes, Hey Baby exposes the softer side of the rugged person that Squiint is. In an extremely creative, colorful, and sight catching homemade video, Squiint talks about how his love has been clouding his mind. Expressing his love for his girl, making sure she knows she is wanted and cared for. Like many of us in real life, Squiint appears to struggle with the emotions provoked by his troublesome relationship.

Without a doubt Squiint possesses an interesting life ahead (and behind) him. We suggest following him on Instagram, on his entertaining Twitter, and his TikTok. Wether you enjoy his music or not I can personally guarantee Squiint will make you laugh… or at least crack a good smile off you.
