"Cyclone" is the second single by American rapper Baby Bash from his album Cyclone. The song features T-Pain on the last verse and Mickaël on the intro and chorus. The song was produced by Lil Jon and the song's beat structure incorporates typical southern hip hop claps and pizzacatos as well as Lil Jon's signature crunk synths and whistles. The Recording Industry Association of America certified the song as double platinum.[1] The catchy, up-tempo and club oriented southern hip hop track allowed the song to peak at #7 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
