DaBaby, you might already know who he is, and there’s a chance that you might be his biggest fan.
In 2019, from being a southern mixtape rapper, the artist became a major label sensation.
From his super hit single ‘Suge’ to the diaper-wearing cameo in the ‘South’ by Southwest. DaBaby has proved to master both spiting lyrics and showmanship.
But as much as DaBaby’s fans love his music, they are strangely curious about his height.
The fans started to become more interested in DaBaby’s height after the rumors, which say he’s the shortest rapper in the industry.
In today’s blog, we’ll find out how tall DaBaby is, along with other essential details about DaBaby’s music career. So, without waiting any longer, let’s jump straight to our first topic.
What’s the Height of DaBaby?
There’s a persistent notion on social media that DaBaby is shorter than most rappers. Surprisingly, the truth is something else.
According to the Capital XTRA, DaBaby is 5’8 tall.
DaBaby is the same height as Ice Cube, Kanye West, Ludacris, and Eminem, as per certain reports.
So while he’s not too tall, he is not short either.
Moreover, he also stands higher than Eazy-E. In addition, you’ll be surprised to know that he is taller than Lil Jon (5’6), Kendrick, and DJ Khaled (5’7).
To be honest, DaBaby seems unconcerned about the jokes about his height. He’s pretty busy focusing on his music career. With that said, let’s understand some details about DaBaby’s music career.
DaBaby’s Increasingly Trending Music
DaBaby is one of the most well-known rappers in the music industry. In 2019, he had his breakthrough, and he’s been serving his fans with great music ever since.
Every singer or rapper has that one song that helps him create his mark in the industry. Do you know which song was it for DaBaby?
In 2019, DaBaby released an album named ‘Baby on Baby,’ which helped him gain mainstream attention for the first time.
Plus, the album contained hit singles like ‘Suge’ and ‘Baby Sitter,’ which feature Offset. In the same year, he released his second album called ‘Kirk’ along with some huge singles, ‘Bop’ for example. These albums and singles helped him reach new heights.
Kicking off 2020, DaBaby released the year’s first album in April, named ‘Blame it on Baby. The album came as a surprise as he released a hit single, ‘Find My Way,’ before, and fans weren’t expected to come across any new creation from the star artist.
However, the album also had one hit single, named ‘Rockstart.’ This is DaBaby’s first song to be counted in the list of chart-topping hits on the Hot 100 Billboard.
After a while, DaBaby’s other single called ‘Blame it on Baby’ debuted as the No.1 on the top 200 albums chart on the Billboard.
However, there’s an interesting fact about DaBaby’s songs that you might not have noticed. He shot most of his songs in Charlotte, as it’s his hometown city and his primary home.
The Real Name of DaBaby
Do you know that DaBaby is not DaBaby’s real name? It’s his stage name. A stage name is a name that artists give themselves to get recognized more quickly in the respective industry. So if DaBaby is a stage name, what’s the star rapper’s real name?
The real name of DaBaby is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk. He was born in 1991 on December 22 in the Ohio city of Cleveland. At the start of his career, people called him ‘Baby Jese’; however, the artist changed to DaBaby, according to the Cheat Sheet.
You might like his old stage name and wonder why he’d changed to DaBaby. Well, there’s a reason behind it. He changed it because he assumed it did not fit as per the current hip hop industry and was ‘too politically controversial.’
Talking about DaBaby’s family, he’s a father of his three children. One out of three children is the artist’s stepson he had with his ex-girlfriend MeMe. All of his kids are away from the spotlight without disclosing even their names on the web.
How DaBaby Responded to the Headlines?
‘Blame it on Baby’ was a big hit single. Despite being a hit, it has some backlash. After the song, music fans demanded the artist to change or switch his flow.
Some fans even started to say that all his music sounded the same.
The rapper said in an interview with ‘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.”
Regardless of all the criticism, it appears that DaBaby’s stardom hasn’t dimmed down a bit. In fact, his music is getting popular with time. Unfortunately, it’s been a while since he has released any single or an album.
We are sure that you might be waiting for his new songs just like his other fans. Well, if he drops a new album this year unexpectedly, don’t be surprised; it’s his style to serve his fans.
To summarise, we have understood that DaBaby’s height is 5’8. We also discussed the increasing popularity of his songs, the artist’s real name, and his reaction to fans’ demand for switching his flow.
We hope now you know that DaBaby isn’t as short as the rumors have portrayed him.
