DaBaby net worth: Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, aka DaBaby, is a rapper with a net worth of $5 million dollars. Here are 10 things you should know about him.
1. DaBaby was born in Cleveland, Ohio, on December 22, 1991. His family later moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. DaBaby graduated high school and completed two years at UNC Greensboro before dropping out. He only went to college to appease his parents.
2. He originally went by Baby Jesus, but decided it was too controversial and didn’t mesh with the rap industry.
3. Years back, he got into a fight at Walmart, which turned into a shootout. A 19-year-old man died from a gunshot wound to the stomach. DaBaby admitted his involvement but claimed self defense, narrowly escaping a murder charge. He pled guilty to carrying a firearm—a misdemeanor—and received one year of probation.
4. His musical mentors include Future, 50 Cent, Eminem, Lil Wayne and Kanye West. He says he studies all the greats and will borrow from anyone with something to offer.
5. He and his on-again-off-again girlfriend, MeMe, have a daughter together and are expecting another child. MeMe also has an older son, from another man, that DaBaby helps take care of. As for DaBaby’s parenting skills, MeMe says: “He is actually an amazing father. Not only to our daughter but to my son as well. He has been in his life for a very long time. He’s an amazing father, I can give him that.”
6. He built buzz the old-fashioned way: taping flyers to light poles and slapping stickers all over Charlotte. He also sold both of his cars, at one point, so he could double-down on marketing. “I always said I’d get it back tenfold, and it happened,” he told Forbes.
7. Much like Drake’s OVO, DaBaby has his own sub-label, called Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment. Stunna 4 Vegas, DJ Kid and Rich Dunk are the main artists under this imprint.
8. He has quite the jewelry collection, which includes: a $40,000 Audemars Piguet watch, a $20,000 Cuban link, a $25,000 Billion Dollar Baby charm and more.
9. If you listen to his interviews and read his social media captions, you’ll notice three recurring themes: gratitude, ambition and positivity. Combine those together and you get a millionaire mindset.
10. Unable to tour due to the Coronavirus, DaBaby’s team estimates he’ll lose out on $7 million dollars in ticket sales.
