DaBaby is hoping to secure a feature from JAY-Z on one his records. In the wee hours of Friday morning (June 25), the “Rockstar” emcee shared at tweet in which he expressed his desire to work with Hov while simultaneously taking initiative to make the collaboration come to life.
“Who I gotta talk to get JAY-Z on a song?” he asked.
Throughout the course of DaBaby’s career, he’s worked with a slew of artists including Roddy Ricch, Lil Yachty, City Girls, Moneybagg Yo and Quavo. The possibilities of him collaborating with Hov in the near future are not entirely far-fetched.
As REVOLT previously reported, the “Suge” rapper will be headlining JAY’s annual Made in Festival when the event makes its post-pandemic return in September. The show, Hov said, will be a special one considering it will mark its 10-year anniversary.
“We are thrilled to announce Made in America 2021 on the legendary Benjamin Franklin Parkway,” JAY said in a statement. “This year will be like no other as Made in America celebrates 10 years of music history making moments.”
Furthermore, DaBaby was included twice on one of Hov’s previous playlists. In 2019, “Suge” and his “Cash Shit” collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion were both named on JAY’s favorite songs of the year list.
It remains to be seen whether DaBaby will get his desired collab with Hov, but until then, he has a lot more to keep his mind occupied.
In addition to preparing for his headlining performance at the Philadelphia festival, he recently released two singles: “Ball If I Want To” and “Red Light, Green Light.” He is also up for seven trophies at this year’s BET Awards, including Best Male Hip-Hop Artist, Album of the Year for Blame It on Baby and a Viewer’s Choice Award. His work alongside other artists earned him four additional nominations in the category of Best Collaboration.
