DaBaby’s 2019 XXL Freshman Freestyle
Laced with his signature bravado and casually menacing gunplay, DaBaby's freestyle is everything fans love about the rapper distilled into a tidy one-minute portion. He starts things off by letting viewers know there's only one DaBaby.
"Shit, I can't name a nigga that flow like I flow, get it out the mud like I did/Told ya out the door what I'm on," the 27-year-old "Suge" rapper spits in his opening couplet.
"Ride through another nigga hood, they look, I stare back/Have you plugged up to machines, fucking with me, gon' need a care pack," he raps at another point of the freestyle.
DaBaby's freestyle is just one example of his rhyming skills, which are something he's flaunted from the start of his rap career. Since he first started rapping back in 2014, the rapper, born Jonathan Kirk, has delivered ferocious bars coated with bits of humor as he's carved out a lane for himself in the industry. His videos echo those lyrical sensibilities, blending outlandish situations with ruthless bars.
Over the course of several projects, including Baby Talk, Blank Blank, Baby on Baby and more, DaBaby has only honed his writing technique and become a more distinguished MC. After being named a 2019 XXL Freshman, he's looking to take things to another level—and you shouldn't bet against him doing so.
