Da Baby Career
DaBaby began his career in rapping in December 2014 and in January 2015 he released his mixtape ‘Non-Fiction’ under the name ‘Baby Jesus’. The mixtape received over 10, 000 streams in the first 48 hours with no promotion apart from a post he made on his Instagram account.
During an interview, he revealed that early in his life he listened to Eminem, 50 Cent, Lil Wayne, everything that his two older brothers were listening to. As he grew older he said that Lil Wayne was of big influence as at that time he had an understanding of what he was listening to.
“I had already been successful with the things I was doing on the streets; I really kind of got bored with it. I was all about touching people and influencing people, I always been that type of person. I was the one teaching people things, I just always had a way with my words and I always spoke with substance. I figured what better way to touch people and change people lives than with the music because a lot of the things that I listen to before I started rapping—I started rapping in 2014—they were rapping about my actual life.
I had a couple of foreign cars and this at the age of 21. I was staying at a condo downtown, things like that. If everything I was listening to is so relatable than me, I can paint a better picture of these things. I always have been the type of person who said what’s next. So I started rapping. I didn’t even know what the term producer meant. But when I made my first song and it was a hit and I took off running from there.”
