On Tuesday, July 13, the Charlotte, North Carolina rhymer shared a post on Instagram with a photo of himself and the veteran rhymer, who Baby first met in person this week.
“Someone I’ve been studying for a MINUTE lent me a few hours of their time today. Niggas so scared to leave me in the room they fucked and let me end up in the room with it. @ 50cent ♂️ BIG MISTAKE! Beyond gratitude for the game couldn’t have come from a better source. Now watch me put this shit to use #BackToWork, “DaBaby captioned the picture.
In the comments section of the download, 50 talks about how he plans to play an OG-esque role with the former 2019 XXL First-year student.
“I lost the pop before he could get it, this one already had it and he’s listening,” writes 50. “I’m going to teach him all the mistakes I made, so that he could be better than me. THIS IS HIP HOP !. “
Prior to The tragic death of Pop Smoke, the rapper had met 50, who also trained Pop to rap. In an interview with The New York Times Last July, during Pop Smoke’s last days before his murder, Fif shared the story of their first meeting.
“The experience was a little weird,” said 50. “Because when I started talking to him at the office, I was looking and he was looking at his phone. He was typing at the same time. And there was a point where I thought to myself, is he listening? so I could kind of see what he was doing, and when I got to the other side of the table he wasn’t paying attention to me, he just wrote down what I said, very serious.
50 Cent also produced Pop’s posthumous debut album, Shoot for the stars Aim for the moon, one of the most successful LPs of 2020.
Although it is not clear which moves will materialize from DaBaby Now receiving advice from a veteran like 50, one thing is for sure, it can only increase from here on out.
Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Juice Wrld, Pop Smoke and many more have taught us quite a bit along the way.
