He told the publication, “That really wasn’t even my idea to do that skit. That was Yachty’s idea. That was just a joke Yachty made. He didn’t warn me about it or nothing. Everything we did in the skits was just off the top of the head. It was all improv. Really, the funniest s**t we did ended up not making the final video. I need to call him and tell him he needs to post it or something, because it was hilarious. Everybody on set was dying. I couldn’t even keep a straight face.”
He continued, “That was dope, though. I don’t ever run away from addressing s**t like that. It was just funny as h**l when he did it in the skit, so I just kept going. It was all natural. Wasn’t none of that planned out. That was fresh to me when I heard it.”
He always released music at this cadence
While it may feel like the DaBaby has been inundating audiences with his music too frequently, it’s actually not a surprise if you are a longtime fan. Before be broke through to the mainstream, the rapper typically released projects back-to-back without much time in between them.

When I have nothing to listen to, that’s when I say, all right, somebody needs to drop some music. I’m about to do it. I’ll let the game tell me when to drop music. If it was up to me, I’d drop music every damn day. But that ain’t really the way it go.”
