DaBaby may be pulling ahead in the battle of the babies.
The North Carolina rapper wants more.
He's the new Billboard cover boy and in the inside of the industry mag he explained what a generational talent he is when asked about a shut out he got from LeBron James.
"It's just the way I'm set up," he said. "Being that once-in-a-generation, once-in-a-lifetime, once-in-an-era type of star. Like I got the creativity of a Kanye [West], the consistency of a Lil Wayne, the versatility of a Drake to make male and female songs. I’m still about whatever, like a [Lil] Boosie or a Gucci [Mane]. I’m God’s work, bro."
Later in the chat, DaBaby added funkmaster Rick James to the list of artist he thinks he's like.
"And that’s what I’m gonna be: a bad motherf*cker [like James]. And with the sh*t I’m gon’ do and whatever lane I’m in, I’m gonna bend the rules. I’m gonna stretch it out and see what’s been done, see how to do me and how to do it differently."
Feel free to disagree. But there's no doubt DaBaby has come a long way from the guy who walked around in a diaper at SXSW and then killed a guy in a Walmart.
