DDG already had a music background as a child thanks to his father being an engineer for local artists and his brothers being singers. It was 2015 when he began taking music more seriously by releasing diss songs on YouTube for fun, including a diss aimed at Lil Yachty called “Big Boat,” which caught a slight buzz on social media. He would get views in the millions for his rap-related videos and soon found himself collaborating with Famous Dex, Zaytoven, G Herbo, Black Youngsta, Queen Naija and more. It was the RIAA certified-Platinum single “Moonwalking in Calabasas,” featuring Blueface, that catapulted DDG into major recognition as an artist. DDG is a 2021 HipHopDX Rising Star.
DDG is signed to Epic Records.
DDG is a rapper, but competed in a “Social Gloves” boxing match where he won against Nate Wyatt.
“Moonwalking in Calabasas” was remixed by Blueface, YG, and Koba LaD. The remix with Blueface went platinum in less than six months after going gold.
DDG had a long-term relationship with Youtuber Kennedy Cymone. DDG has recently dated rapper Rubi Rose.
DDG has 1 living brother Dub, and 1 deceased brother.
DDG and Queen Naija are both from Michigan but became friends through mutual Youtube friends. Thay have made a few vlogs together before either of them were music artists.
