DaBaby‘s new album is finally out. The album dropped a little after midnight today. It’s all we expected. The rapper announced the album a few days prior to its release. With this new album, DaBaby‘s already shining star is about to shine brighter.
Earlier this year, the rapper dropped his debut effort Baby on Baby which bore the huge hit, Suge. Since then, his name has soared amongst the most heard music names this year. A little after the album dropped, he lost his father. The rapper talks about this in Intro, the first track off the new album.
He raps “They found him dead a couple days before I started tour /…/Same time I got the news, my sh*t went number one, that’s f**ked up”
He also shared the story on his Instagram in March “I got a text message saying my Album was #3 on the charts then talked to my lil brother and found out my pops passed away out of nowhere and my sh*t went #1 on the charts out of nowhere. My biggest loss and my biggest win at the same time. Errthang they love about me I learned from you”.
The new album comes two days after it was announced by the rapper. It features contributions from Chance The Rapper, Nicki Minaj, Migos, Lil Baby, Gucci Mane, Kevin Gates, Moneybagg Yo and Stunna 4 Vegas. Speaking about the album name in a recent interview, he said “My last name, the weight, it’s all about confidence, being a leader”.
