DaBaby is the living embodiment of controversy in rap music. Baby has been savaged by fans for making homophobic comments on stage. Baby mama drama with DaniLeigh reached the national headlines. The Charlotte rapper now has to answer to criticism about his past.

The RapTV.com Twitter page recently posted a list of rappers along with their high school GPAs. Several big names were included in the list including J. Cole, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and Childish Gambino, who all had excellent grades. DaBaby was listed as having finished school with a 1.8 GPA. That would make him roughly a C-average student.

DaBaby has called out the tweet as a lie. A quote tweet with a series of cap emojis came shortly after the list was posted. Fans are asking to see the receipts.

The list didn’t cite any sources. There were no attachments of scans of report cards or interviews where the rappers talked about their grades. DaBaby could be telling the truth.

In the long run, it doesn’t matter how DaBaby performed in high school. Success in the rap game takes talent and determination. A rapper’s high school GPA has almost no bearing on things.

DaBaby still felt it necessary to call out the tweet. This will surely create even more unnecessary drama. DaBaby seems to thrive on that sort of thing.
