 DaBaby Compares Himself to Eminem, Challenges J.Cole and Kendrick Lamar

DaBaby has stated that he can rap on an equal level with Eminem, J.Cole, and Kendrick Lamar.

The famous rapper made the boastful claim while appearing on Math Hoffa's My Expert Opinion interview show, and stated that he avoids rapping about negative aspects of his life because he doesn't want to exploit it, but that if he did rap at that caliber, he would be just as good as the aforementioned G.O.A.T.'s.

“If I don’t feel like you know nothing about this shit, I’m not about to try and exploit my real life anyways, I’m just doing me,”Baby said.

“So when it come to like pain or anything that affects me or effects somebody I love I couldn’t dealt running around god damn exploiting that shit. I can’t do it.”

He went on to claim that he's in the "music business," and that his music is tailored to whatever his audience is feeling at the time.

“Ok you can put this beat on and I’ll go Eminem level on that bitch, you gotta get one of them to come fuck with me. You gotta go get Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, I don’t wanna disrespect nobody but boy, raise your hand,” Baby said. “I’m like that. N-ggas know too and I’m like that for real I don’t gotta talk about nobody else story. I’ll talk about me.”

This is not the first time the "Bop" rapper has made such an assertion. Back in February, just before running through an L.A. Leakers freestyle, Baby made a similar assertion, saying that someone should put him in the studio with a legend.

“Don’t get it fuckin’ twisted,” he told Justin Credible and DJ Sour Milk. “I like to turn people up, I like to make people feel good, but at the same time, you gotta get Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole for me, n-gga. Nas, JAY-Z. You gotta go get them ones.”

Baby sang on how he's lyrically on par with 50 Cent, Will Smith, and even the late 2Pac during another freestyle he did for Funk Flex in October.

The recent claims come after Baby's latest project, Baby On Baby 2, had terrible first-week sales of 16,000 album-equivalent units and didn't even crack the Top 20 on the Billboard 200. This was a drop in the bucket compared to his last effort, 2020's Blame It On Baby, which opened at No. 1 with 124,000 album-equivalent sales.
