DaBaby Says His Flow Is Top Five in the Rap Game
DaBaby has something to say about the continuous narrative that he has a singular flow.
The North Carolina rapper has heard from critics for a while that he only has one rap style. On Saturday morning (Oct. 17), the 2019 XXL Freshman addressed the issue on social media after being prompted by a Twitter user. "Better switch your flow..." the person wrote to DaBaby.
"Better switch yo life and quit playing with them pussy ass Pokémon cards ," DaBaby replied as a retweet.
He expounded in follow-up tweets. "Do y’all squares be forreal ?" he posted. "Y’all know dis flow Top 5 hottest in the game right now right? Y’all know this flow got Baby more dollars than instagram followers right? "
He later took an introspective look at the situation. "I gotta start caring a lil more, false internet narratives can turn into trendy topics if you don’t address em early. I just don’t be giving a fuck tho???. That’s not ok," he added. "Past year I done sat back and let the internet think what they wanna think... mfs think I’m single, married, taken, a liar, cheater, fighter, killer, dealer, real nigga, lame, trap rapper, pop star, rockstar. I’ll let a MF think whatever???."
Multitude of flows or not, DaBaby is still one of the hottest artists in the game. His most recent album, Blame It on Baby, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The single "Rockstar" featuring Roddy Ricch also reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Earlier this year, Baby announced plans to release a second album before the end of 2020. He leads nominations at the upcoming 2020 BET Awards with 12 nods.
