As DaBaby’s popularity increases, so does its price. the old XXL Freshman currently charges a pretty penny to be featured on a track.
On Saturday, Feb. 13, the North Carolina rapper was sharing family clips on his Instagram Story when he posted a YouTube video for “Leave Me Alone Freestyle,” which he released over two years ago in 2019.
Shot just before DaBaby had his breakout year, the clip shows him flipping through a modest pile of cash while rapping. “Someone told these rappers leave me alone now/My price went up, I’m charging 5,000,000 for a song now/It’s too expensive for you? Fuck you, I really should charge you 10 / Went to break bread with the family when I could have bought a Benz,” he rhymes to the beat of the popular track Flipp Dinero.
In a bit of bragging, DaBaby provided an update on his current fee, letting fans know that things have definitely changed since January 2019. “From 5k a verse to 300k,” he posted on Instagram.
DaBaby’s prices rose dramatically soon after freestyle fell, mainly due to the success of his debut album, baby on baby, released in March of the same year. That fall, he revealed to hosts of the Power 106 LA Leakers radio show that his prices had reached six figures. “It’s six figures,” DaBaby said during the interview. “God is great. It’s six of them. It’s six figures at least.”
Now, six Grammy nominations and a No. 1 song later, DaBaby’s bag for 16 is even bigger.
