One of the top hip-hop artistes of 2020, DaBaby gave back to back hits in the previous year and keeping in mind the same, he had a bold statement to make when he took to his official Instagram account most recently. But wait, the North Carolina native was not alone as he posed alongside one of the greatest ever to touch the mic — Lil Wayne — while passing the comment.  

What exactly did DaBaby say?

While posing for his Instagram pictures with Lil Wayne, the 29-year-old hip-hop artist made it very clear to the other rappers that the hip-hop crown belongs to him and Wayne. While hitting the studio in Miami for apparently a new song with the Wayne, Dababy captioned his multiple pictures as, "Best rappers alive. @liltunechi,” along with an emoticon of a goat aka “Greatest of All Time". In other pictures posted in the same slideshow, we could see Lil Wayne and DaBaby posing behind the mic which we assume is for their upcoming collaboration. None of the rappers have spilled any details on the same. MEAWW will keep you posted. 



 

How did fans react?

The bold claim about being the "best rappers alive" made by the six-time Grammy-nominated artist led to a debate on the internet. Both the rappers enjoy a massive fan following across the world, but as we all know, Lil Wayne has been in the game for more than two decades now while DaBaby rose to fame only two to three years ago. Speaking on who’s the best rapper between the two, a lot of social media users rushed to Twitter with their opinions. One user stated, "Lil Wayne sure but DaBaby.. wouldn’t say he’s the best." Another expressed, "AND WE GOT DABABY AND LIL WAYNE TOGETHER. THIS TRULY A TIME TO BE ALIVE." One claimed Jay-Z was the king of hip-hop saying, "Dababy raps his a** off, as a matter of fact - he raps better than Lil Wayne at the moment. Plus he's supposed to say he's the best rapper alive!! However, the best rapper alive is Jigga."

One user tweeted, "Ugh! I am legit boycotting Lil Wayne because of his ANTI BLACK positions. A lot of people are. This is not a good look for Dababy. He doesn't need Wayne, the Martian needs him." Another added, "That’s nice! But if lil Wayne number 1, dababy def ain’t 2." One stated, "This dababy yute better shut his mouth dont ever disrespect lil wayne,” while another asserted, “DaBaby thinks to highly of himself considering he hasn't even dropped a single memorable verse & puts out the same tired a** song every couple of months. Same beat, same cadence, same lyrical content. You're not Lil Wayne, & hoppin on everybody's song ain't gonna change that.”



 



 



 



 



 



 



 

Hip-hop giant's collaboration

The upcoming yet-untitled track of DaBaby and Lil Wayne won't be their first collaboration as they earlier teamed up on the remix of Jack Harlow’s 2020 hit single ‘Whats Poppin'. The track also featured Tory Lanez. However, the song was not a stand-alone track from Dababy and Lil Wayne. DaBaby was also supposed to have an appearance on Lil Wayne's album ‘Funeral’ but things did not materialize due to legal issues.

Speaking to Complex about the same, artist Mack Maine had earlier said, "We had two joints that didn't make it that were just monsters. We had one with DaBaby, but we had some clearance issues. They should still be collabing soon, whether it’s on Wayne or DaBaby's next album."
