DaBaby publicly stated the amounts he spent to secure a guest feature from Lil Baby, Boosie BadAzz, and Tory Lanez early in his career in an interview with BigBoyTV, which appeared on YouTube on Thursday (Oct. 27).
DaBaby claims he paid Boosie $15,000 for a verse on their debut song together. "I certainly paid him $15,000 on the first song and [$8,000] more on the second," he added.
"I paid Tory Lanez [$10,000] for a song called 'Squad Goals,'" he says. "I paid Lil Baby $10,000 for a song called 'Today.'"
Moreover, DaBaby said that Yo Gotti provided him a guest verse "on the love" for free. He also stated that he did not regret paying for guest verses when he was a newcomer to the rap industry.
DaBaby's guest feature fee has skyrocketed now that he's at a greater position in the rap world. A feature stanza from the "Rockstar" rhymer costs $300,000 USD. Lil Baby recently revealed that he charges between $300,000 and $350,000 for a verse.
DaBaby also said in the BigBoyTV interview that he receives a performance fee of $250,000 to $300,000 every concert.
