DaBaby Responds to Criticism That He Has the Same Flow on All of His Songs
No one can argue against the fact that DaBaby is one of the music industry‘s biggest talents at the moment. However, some music fans have been calling out DaBaby for having the same flow for all of his songs. In a new interview, the Charlotte rapper is responding to these claims.
After a successful 2019, DaBaby released his first album of 2020
DaBaby entered 2020 as one of the biggest artists in the world during 2019. He broke into the mainstream music scene when his single “Suge,” taken from his debut studio album, Baby on Baby, went viral. The song ended up reaching No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming a massive hit.
He also released a second album in 2019, Kirk, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard top 200 albums chart, becoming his second top 10 album. At last year’s Grammys, “Suge” was nominated for two awards in the categories of Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.
Earlier this month, he released his first album of the new year, Blame it on Baby. Though it was preceded by the lead single, Find My Way, the album was pretty much a surprise release. The album is projected to top Billboard’s top 200 albums chart, becoming his second straight No. 1 and his third straight top 10 album.
DaBaby addresses the talk of him using the same flow
One thing that fans and critics have accused DaBaby of is overutilizing his signature flow in most of his music.
The rapper switches up on his latest album, even singing a bit on the new album. However, the critiques continue to plague him. In a recent interview, he addressed everything that is being said head-on.
He told The Breakfast Club, “As far as switching the flow, I have no problem rapping circles around any one of these n***as. I couldn’t find myself entertaining that. I could joke about it just like I joke about everything else. … I’ll make a conscious album right now, I’ll record the whole s**t today. On some J. Cole vibes. Joyner Lucas. I can get in there too.”
The rapper continued, “At the end of the day, I understand what’s going on. You gotta milk the game. You gotta take advantage of it. If I switch it too quick, you ain’t gon’ like it. You gon’ be like ‘D**n Baby, I wanted you to turn me up.’ When you got something going, you would be a fool to step on your own toes and go left with it.”
This isn’t the only person who has been hitting back at the claims that the DaBaby uses the same flow. Producer DJ K.i.D., who worked on Blame it on Baby, also came out in the rapper’s defense.
He told Complex, “I was on social media, and some people would say, ‘Baby got the same type of flow. In the camp, we all know Baby don’t have the same type of flow. He was rapping the type of music we made on ‘Sad Shit,’ the melodic type of vibe, back before I even knew [him]. So it was like, yeah, I’m fixing to unleash and show y’all the type of music that I know I can make, that y’all ain’t even heard yet. He pretty much had to dumb down his music so the world could catch on.”
Blame it on Baby is currently streaming on all major music platforms.
