DaBaby released his new album Kirk lat night. Shortly before, he dropped by Ebro Darden's Beats 1 show to discuss that and more.

One topic that came up was Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. DaBaby said he's able to understand their music on first listen, but their message is hard for others to grasp. DaBaby is featured on the Dreamville's Revenge of the Dreamers III LP with Cole.

"When it comes to the music, the traits you got to have in order to make lit music, club music, to have the swag with it, to have the lingo, I got those traits just from my environment and how I came up. And I got the brains to be able to play around with words," explained DaBaby, who recently said he charges six figures for a feature. "Like when I listen to a Kendrick Lamar verse, a J. Cole verse, I hear everything they're saying. Like the first time I listen to it, I understand it. I can digest it."

"A lot of people can listen to sh*t like that and... it goes over their head," he added. "You get what I'm saying? It goes over their head. A lot of people just want to hear the beat. I can do both of them. Like [the song] 'Suge.' I'm just popping sh*t on sh*t."

Do you agree about K Dot and Cole's music going over people's heads?
