DaBaby claims to be able to rap on par with Eminem, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar.
The Charlottesville rapper made the conceited statement while a guest on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion interview show.
He claimed that if he did rap at that level, he would be just as good as the aforementioned G.O.A.T.’s but avoids rapping about negative aspects of his life because he doesn’t want to exploit it.
“If I don’t feel like you know nothing about this shit, I’m not about to try and exploit my real life anyways, I’m just doing me,” Baby said. “So when it come to like pain or anything that affects me or effects somebody I love I couldn’t dealt running round god damn exploiting that shit. I can’t do it.”
He continued by saying he’s in the “music business,” and that his music caters to whatever his fans are feeling at the moment.
“Ok you can put this beat on and I’ll go Eminem level on that bitch, you gotta get one of them to come fuck with me. You gotta go get Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, I don’t wanna disrespect nobody but boy, raise your hand,” Baby said. “I’m like that. N-ggas know too and I’m like that for real I don’t gotta talk about nobody else story. I’ll talk about me.”
This is not the first time “Bop” rapper has asserted something like this. A similar assertion was made by Baby moments before performing an L.A. Leakers freestyle back in February. He argued that he should be seated in the studio alongside a legend.
“Don’t get it fuckin’ twisted,” he told Justin Credible and DJ Sour Milk. “I like to turn people up, I like to make people feel good, but at the same time, you gotta get Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole for me, n-gga. Nas, JAY-Z. You gotta go get them ones.”
