North Carolina rapper DaBaby and Roddy Ricch have a reason to smile right now. The duo won big at the Billboard Music Awards securing Top Rap Song for their hit “ROCKSTAR” anthem.
DaBaby + Roddy Ricch Win Top Rap Song
DaBaby pulled through to the event to accept the massive award. He also took time out to thank the fans for holding them down and making all of the success possible.
“To be able to put out a song like ‘ROCKSTAR’ at the height of the pandemic – it’s nothing short of a blessing. I say all that to say it wouldn’t be possible without God and my team and I appreciate all y’all. And oh yeah, and most importantly, last but not least, the fans and the supporters because if y’all don’t press play, the music don’t get heard. Appreciate y’all!”
Despite the heartwarming moment, a massive cringe alert happened courtesy of Texas hip-hop artist Post Malone‘s “Rockstar” song actually getting mistakenly played as Baby’s version.
People didn’t hold back and unloaded pure jokes and fury in the YouTube video’s comments section.
“They played post Malone and not even his song lol”
“They really played the wrong rockstar😭somebody gettin fired lmao”
“so who’s gonna tell the dj that’s the wrong rockstar?💀”
“I- who was in charge of the music 😂🤦🏾♀️”
“Ayyo that’s not his rockstar 😅”
