Hip Hop’s newest rising star made his debut appearance on New York’s Saturday Night Live (SNL). DaBaby took the stage not once, but twice to perform his hits “BOP” and “Suge”.
DaBaby is up for two Grammy nominations at the 62nd Grammy awards show. Winning his first Grammy for “Best Rap Song” or “Best Rap Performance” won’t come easy. The North Carolina star will go up against the likes for Cardi B, Offset, and Nipsey Hussle.
Pressure isn’t something that can’t stir DaBaby off his rise. Just as he suggested via his Instagram, when captioning a video of him watching himself perform on SNL, “Grammy Nominated #Suge Performance Live on @nbcsnl. Ima dawg under pressure.”
DaBaby’s second studio album “Kirk” debuted at number one of the Billboard 200. An album which he introduced to the world with the intro first. A move his says was intentional. “It’s definitely how I wanted to set the tone for the album and just you know give the fans, the listeners a different side of me. Let them get to meet me personally. Let them all know what all that transpired in my personal life during my break through as a major artist,” DaBaby says during an interview the Breakfast Club.
One single that contributed in a big way to his second studio album’s success, is the hit ‘BOP”. During the SNL performance, DaBaby brought along the Jabbawockeez dance crew. The crew joined him on stage for both “BOP” and “Suge” performances.
DaBaby would not only perform his two hit singles, but would also be featured on a sketch titled Hip-Hop Carolers. In the sketch, DaBaby robbed a family while they were distracted by Christmas carolers.
