DaBaby Kirk Album: 20 of the Best Lyrics
Few artists have impacted the 2019 hip-hop landscape in the manner that DaBaby has. His hit singles, show-stealing guest appearances and gregarious personality have made him into a bonafide star.
After gaining traction with a succession of mixtape releases, the North Carolinian, who inked a deal with Interscope Records, made his ascension into the mainstream with his debut album, Baby On Baby. Released in March, the album peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 and was led by the single "Suge," which scored the rapper his first Top 10 hit as a lead artist.
Despite his music being in heavy rotation, the 2019 XXL Freshman doubles down with his new album, Kirk, his second full-length release of the calendar year. Thirteen tracks in length, with appearances from Nicki Minaj, Migos, Chance the Rapper, Gucci Mane, Lil Baby, Kevin Gates, Moneybagg Yo, YK Osiris and Stunna 4 Vegas, Kirk is a star-studded affair that looks to bolster DaBaby's popularity even further.
With DaBaby's new collection capturing the attention of the rap world, XXL takes a deep dive into the album to pick out 20 of Kirk's most impressive lyrics. Prepare to mash that rewind button.
"How a nigga perform on BET and a year ago couldn't afford a sandwich?/I had to move in with TG when I went broke movin' out to Cali/What you know about smilin' every day for all your fans, actin' like you happy?/I spent a hundred thousand layin' my daddy to rest, but I ain't braggin'/I got some questions, I'm a die about respect if I don't get answers/My mama stood up in that chair, took it like a G when she had cancer/My brother be thinkin' that we don't love him and let him struggle like we ain't family/Like I won't give up all I got to see you happy, nigga" —DaBaby
"And these niggas know I been a boss ever since Rick Ross was the biggest boss/Got diamonds all over my teeth, I been eatin' chicken, I need me some dental floss/Hold my watch in the air, it's no longer hot, you can go turn the condition off/I'm hittin' this ho on the low, she fuck with me hard, she say that her nigga soft/Why you talkin' so low, 'cause if a nigga find out and he try me, I'm knockin' a nigga off" —DaBaby
"She need to be talkin' 'bout suckin' some dick, I nut in her mouth and she gargle/If she spit out that rich nigga shit without swallowin', me and her havin' some problems/We havin' revolvers strictly for murder and plenty of pistols and choppers/Ayy, when you gon' stop, whenever the fat lady sing, I don't listen to opera/You know how I give it up, fuck around, fucked up my hand, beat a nigga up/Pull off on a nigga like vroom, he don't got a car, he still catchin' the city bus" —DaBaby
"I'm going back to Cali like Biggie, 'bout to go get a pound just to smoke/They told me to come work on my album, I'm tryna go find out the price on a boat/My lil' bitch act like Megan Thee Stallion, she ghetto and nasty, she drivin' the boat/All this shit that they makin' be boring, play me something to bop while I ride with the pole" —DaBaby
"I needed some shit with some bop in it/I flew past the whip with that blunt in my mouth, watch the swervin', that whip had a cop in it/My bitch got good pussy, fly her 'cross the country,I finish the show and I hop in it/I got me a milli', I did it legit-ly, I'm still with the shits, I'm a hot nigga" —DaBaby
"Fill 'em with vibes, get in and ride/And no, a nigga not blind, but I keep the stick and I'm firin'/I ain't met a nigga in life, that's fuckin' with me, say he did, then he lyin'/Got so many vibes stuffed in the car, we can fuck them hoes six at a time" —DaBaby
"My bitch drink Bacardi, I'm in this bitch feelin' like 'Set, quarter mil' on my neck/One-point-two on the crib, four hundred thou' on the whip, dickin' down your lil' bitch/I'm 'bout to go buy me a coupe, pull up, make the doors raise the roof/Louis V army fatigue, hop out with a pole like a troop/Baby Ray Allen from three, you leave me open, I shoot/We like Martin and Pam at the hotel, we kickin' hoes out, get the boot" —DaBaby
"Takin' a trip to Mexico, I'm comin' right back in town/I sell a lotta perico, been tryna slow it down/Takin' a four, I put a two on that and then I make it bounce/I took a thirty-six to a hundred and eight and weigh up every ounce/I'm a plug, workin' a drug hub out in H-Town/Hey, what up? You my lil' love bug, you with Gates now/Penetrate while I grip her waist, push her face down/Concentrate, this that bass, makin' great sounds" —Kevin Gates
"When a nigga go home, I don't answer my phone/Everybody want to leech, everybody want a loan/Everybody wanna talk, everybody wanna clique/I don't wanna be friends, get off my dick" —DaBaby
"These fuck niggas made me sick, they got me nauseous/Paranoid, all this money movin' cautious/Flippin' quarters on a corner to a baller/Run up on Gucci, you gon' see the coroner/Bright carats on my chest not foreign/Paris freshin', we fresh like a foreigner/Nigga tried to rob me, now he a goner/Gucci Mane preach the gospel to the mourners" —Gucci Mane
"Shoes too big, but they use hair strands as a lace and they break/When it's hot outside, you don't want fans in your face/But you might want a fan in your face when yo' man got a heat and the hand in the waist/Gotta keep a cool head, niggas got PTSD these days/Some folks ain't live to see these days/I be in the lab like Dex, coolin', takin' these Dee Dee breaks/The PD way, I could write a book like TD Jakes" —Chance the Rapper
"But she got that ass, though, told her how to throw it right/She treat me like a motorcycle, ride me like a motorbike, vroom/I just took off, check the speed/I just made 100k off a show, I just made 50k off of weed/You know I like to play with your ho, I choke her and pull out her weave/I told her, 'Bae, I gotta go,' she beggin' me 'Stay over, please'" —DaBaby
"Walk in the bank with a M in a tote, I'm tryna make a deposit/Let 'em try play with the money, shawty gon' take off your noggin/Long as she want it and pick it, I'm buyin' it/I had the Rover for a year, I don't drive/I get 'em whacked, I don't advise 'em to try it, yeah/I'm runnin' shit, I ain't lyin'" —Lil Baby
"Big speaker like an 18-inch sub, I'm a hundred, you a dub/Lookin' for me, I'm booked up, 50 Cent, I'm in the club/Diamonds on my earlobe, ice on dyke, 150 on studs/Rugrat, young nigga got it out the mud" —Moneybagg Yo
"They wanna know if he can rap, I tell 'em, 'Really'/Tell my bitches, 'Call me Meek' 'cause I done finally got a milli'/You know how bitches like to act when they get pretty/Like to turn a nigga down, that's how I act when I get jiggy/Fuck around and tell her, 'No,' I wanna fuck the bitch that's with ya/We out of Backwoods, shit, fuck it, get a Swisher" —DaBaby
"I told her I keep hearin' voices/Why he rich and he keep wearin' Forces?/These niggas, they lactose-intolerant/Bitch, I'm married to cheese, no divorcin'/Bitch, you can't get a ring if you want it/I pull up with a bitch that's so thick, think I'm Norbit/I'm slammin' the ho like I'm O'Neal/She want money for pussy, bitch, no deal" —DaBaby
"I'm still in the city, bitch, no doubt/Gotta give me six figures to go out/I count up 50k for a walk-through, he try me at my show, we gon' show out/I just left the club with your ho, fucked her right on the floor, say I fucked up her blowout/My bad, boo, I thought that was weave/Orange juice, the first nigga try me, I squeeze" —DaBaby
"Starting not to get head 'til I want some, she eat up the two-ball, the screwball like ice cream/Who you know wear designer with Nike, I smile and I show off my dimples, I'm icy/Name a label that's fucking with my team, somebody come give me a challenge, excite me/Nigga better stay 'way from that water, I let this bitch off, it's gon' hit you like lightning" —DaBaby
"You know I ain't never had shit/Now I'm somewhere in a meeting getting my ass kissed/By a white man 'cause his daughter fuck with my adlibs/I done dropped dick in her friend, I'm like, 'My bad, sis'/That nigga act like he too good, even for a bad bitch/I'm a buy a Lambo 'fore this album hit the fans, bitch/Tell the valet park my shit at the front, I'ma hit the gas bitch" —DaBaby
"These niggas, they know I'm a dawg, I ain't worried about him, I know he a bitch/The next nigga that come play with me, I'ma send him to go ask Tupac for a pic, bitch/They say I'm the hottest new nigga, go check the thermometer, that nigga sick/Nigga must have a fever or somethin'/Heard he was born up in Cleveland or somethin'/Let me give you a history lesson, we moved back to Charlotte, 1999/I ain't sayin that none of that matter 'cause if somebody touch me, then somebody dyin'" —DaBaby
