DaBaby draws a lot of attention and he also makes some fans compare him to other artists. He’s tired of hearing people compare him to Ludacris.
While speaking to Billboard, DaBaby opened up on the red carpet of the BET Awards. He was asked about common comparisons to Ludacris. He also expressed the idea that the two are not the same artist. Luda inspired many rappers from that generation, not just DaBaby.
“I wouldn’t even say we’re one of the same. I feel like that’s too commonly used. I think people use that too lightly. I was inspired by Ludacris’ creativity with his music videos. [I was inspired] by a lot of people. Not only people like Ludacris, but people like Nelly. I mean, everybody.”
“I feel like as the generations unfolded, people from every era was inspired by somebody from the era before them. Even when it boils down to 50 Cent, Eminem, and Mystikal, everybody’s videos used to be crazy. Busta Rhymes’ videos used to be crazy [too]. So I definitely was inspired by Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, and several other artists with their music videos.”
You can compare DaBaby to many artists who he might have drawn inspiration from. He would still like to stand out as his own artist so one day others can say he inspired future generations just like Busta and Luca did for generations after them.
DaBaby will keep making records and continuing his char-topping ways, no matter who people want to compare him to.
