DaBaby & Friends

Rapper DaBaby dove headfirst into music, making a sharp turn from petty crime and legal issues to pursuing rap full-time with no previous experience. Beginning in 2015 under the name Baby Jesus but soon altering that to DaBaby, the Charlotte, North Carolina rapper ambushed the music industry with constant mixtape releases, making waves with tracks like 2016’s “Light Show” as well as performances at South by Southwest in 2015 and 2017. His style grew progressively harder and more aggressive as his discography expanded, with melodic and lighthearted flows becoming more confident and fluid by 2018’s Blank Blank mixtape. Building upon the buzz of his early work, he topped the Billboard 200 with 2019’s KIRK and 2020’s Blame It on Baby, which featured the chart-topping single “Rockstar” with Roddy Ricch.
