DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s collaborated single “Rockstar” has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The “Suge” rapper shared the news on his Instagram story.
The track currently sits at the No. 9 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 after spending three weeks on the chart.
The Charlotte native recently released his sophomore album, Blame It On Baby. The project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The LP featured appearances by Future, Youngboy Never Broke Again, Ashanti, Megan Thee Stallion, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, Quavo and more.
While appearing on “The Breakfast Club,” DaBaby addressed the criticism surrounding his flow, which some say sounds the same.
“As far as switching the flow, I have no problem rapping circles around any one of these niggas,” he said. “I couldn’t find myself entertaining that. I could joke about it just like I joke about everything else. I’ll make a conscious album right now, I’ll record the whole shit today. On some J. Cole vibes. Joyner Lucas. I can get in there too.”
“At the end of the day, I understand what’s going on,” he continued. “You gotta milk the game. You gotta take advantage of it. If I switch it too quick, you ain’t gon’ like it. You gon’ be like, ‘Damn Baby, I wanted you to turn me up.’ When you got something going, you would be a fool to step on your own toes and go left with it.”
During an interview with Ebro Darden last month, DaBaby announced that he is already planning to drop another project before the end of this year.
“You asking if I’m gonna drop another album?” he said. “Damn right. Definitely, definitely, for sure. I can’t not do that. I gotta put out more.”
Congratulations to DaBaby and Roddy Ricch!
