DaBaby was one of the most dominant rappers of 2020 as he was recently named Mediabase’s most played artist on Urban Radio. This past weekend, the Charlotte rapper also went to the studio with Lil Wayne, one of hip-hop’s best rappers to ever do it. The two took some photos together as well as Baby went on to post them on his Instagram feed. There, Baby had fans debating in his comments after a bold statement he made in his caption.
DaBaby Claims He And Wayne Are The Best Rappers Alive In Instagram Post
