Discussing the aftermath of J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar's lyrical exchange, DaBaby disclosed that a prominent "lyricist" contacted him with an offer to manufacture a fake feud for publicity.

According to DaBaby, the unnamed rapper, renowned for his lyrical prowess, reached out just days after the J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar incident. 
In their conversation, the rapper proposed the idea of instigating a faux rivalry, citing the buzz generated by Cole and Kendrick's back-and-forth as inspiration. Expressing his initial reaction, DaBaby recounted:
He shot me a text, he was like, ‘Hit me, you gon’ like this.’ I called him and was like, ‘What up?’ […] He like, ‘You wanna go up? How you feeling?’ I’m like, ‘What’s up? Talk to me.’

The proposition was to engage in a diss track exchange, despite maintaining a cordial relationship behind closed doors.
