Have you ever wondered what the net worth of DaBaby is? DaBaby has achieved mainstream success and popularity in recent years and is currently enjoying the spotlight as one of the most recognizable rap artists in the game. As of 2021, DaBaby has a net worth of $5 million. In this post, we will explore DaBaby’s path to celebrity status.
DaBaby was born on December 22nd, 1991. His real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk. DaBaby was born in Cleveland, Ohio but moved to Charlotte, North Carolina in 1999.
After high school, DaBaby attended the University of North Carolina for two years before dropping out of his studies. DaBaby has said that the reason why he left college was that it was largely his parent’s idea and that he never had any interest in going. Instead, he wanted to pursue a career similar to his early role models like Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, and Eminem.
DaBaby began to seriously embark on his music career in 2014. DaBaby’s first release was in 2015 with his debut mix-tape called Nonfiction. DaBaby also released other mix-tapes in his early days, such as God’s Work, Baby Talk, Billion Dollar Baby, and Back On My Baby Jesus Sh*t. During these times DaBaby actually performed under the name Baby Jesus, later changing it to avoid controversy.
DaBaby later signed to Arnold Taylor, the president of Southern Coast Music Group label. This was the same radio promoter that contributed to the rise of other Southern rap stars such as Yo Gotti and Future. DaBaby was able to achieve a lot of exposure from this venture and began to achieve considerable success. Because of this success, DaBaby was able to accomplish a seven-figure recording deal with Interscope in late 2018.
DaBaby’s Path To Success
DaBaby released his debut studio album on March 1st, 2019, and it was titled Baby On Baby. Baby On Baby was released under Interscope and it was very successful. The album came in at 25 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and the hit single Suge was immensely popular.
DaBaby collaborated with numerous artists following his album release. Megan Thee Stallion, Quality Control, and Dreamville are some examples of artists that he made music with. DaBaby released his second album, Kirk, a tribute to his last name, on September 27th of the same year. The artist finished 2019 on a great note, having the most Billboard Hot 100 entries of any other artists that year (22 entries).
DaBaby carried his momentum into 2020, with the release of another album called Blame It On Baby. This album has his most popular song to date, Rockstar, which featured Roddy Rich. Rockstar was rated number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 7 consecutive weeks in the United States and also reached the coveted #1 spot in the United Kingdom as well.
DaBaby has continued to steadily release singles throughout 2021, including Masterpiece, Ball If I Want To, Red Light Green Light, and Giving What It’s Supposed To Give.
Record Label and Artistry
Starting a record label has been a dream for DaBaby. So, he started the record label Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment in 2017, making his dream a reality. The record label currently has 5 artists signed onto it, and DaBaby himself has expressed that his plan for the future is to be a producer instead of a rapper.
DaBaby has a signature sound to his music that helped him break out into the rap scene. He has said that Future, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West are among his influences. Charlie Holmes of The Rolling Stone has described his music as “staccato, precise, and brutal rapping style, a syllable-crushing force delivered with such forward momentum it often gives the illusion that he starts rapping before the beat begins.”
DaBaby Net Worth 2021
As of 2021, DaBaby has a net worth of $5 million. Most of his wealth is from music sales and streams, and with having so many popular singles it is not surprising to see that he is a millionaire. DaBaby also shows no signs of stopping any time soon so one should expect to see his popularity grow in the future.
