DaBaby had a breakout year this year and is looking to make 2020 even bigger. The 2019 XXL Freshman recently announced he has an upcoming track with Lil Wayne on deck.
On Wednesday (Nov. 27), the North Carolina rapper was interviewed by Viva Lakoi and Angela Yee for 104.5 The Beat about his great year. During the interview, he revealed his glow-up has allowed him to get noticed by the likes of Tunechi, with whom he recorded a collab.
“I got a song with Lil Wayne, that was amazing, so I’m good,” DaBaby revealed, around the 2:40 mark in the interview, when asked who his dream collab would be.
DaBaby said Weezy’s people contacted him about the record. “They reached out,” he said. “They sent me a record. It’s a great record, too. Yea, for sure.”
The collab is extra special considering DaBaby looks at Wayne as the best to ever do it. “It’s amazing,” DaBaby added. “That’s the G.O.A.T. of my era. That’s the G.O.A.T., who I was probably most highly influenced by music-wise growing up. It had to be, if you my age.”
DaBaby is on cloud nine after being nominated for his first Grammy Awards. He is up for trophies for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for his single “Suge” at the prestigious music awards show.
His new Kirk album peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart the week after its release. The new LP features guest appearances from Chance The Rapper, Migos, Nicki Minaj, Kevin Gates, Lil Baby, Gucci Mane and more.
