Within the space of just two years, DaBaby has upped his feature price by $295,000 with the help of a No. 1 single and various platinum plaques to his name.
Over the weekend, the Charlotte North Carolina-bred rapper took to his Instagram Stories to reveal he’s currently charging $300,000 a verse. He did so by posting a photo of his “Leave Me Alone (Freestyle)” video on YouTube, in which he brags about charging $5,000 for a feature in January 2019.
“From 5K a verse to 300K a verse,” he wrote.

With over 8.4 million YouTube views, “Leave Me Alone” finds DaBaby chronicling his come-up over Brooklyn native Flipp Dinero’s song of the same name.
“Somebody tell these rappers leave me ‘lone now,” he raps. “My feature price went up, I charge $5K for a song now/That’s too high for you? Fuck you, I should really charge you ten/I went and broke bread with the family when I could’ve bought a Benz.”
“It’s six digits,” he told L.A. Leakers‘ Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk. “God is great. It’s six of ’em. It’s six digits at least.”
The revelation arrives shortly after reaching a big milestone to support his asking price. On February 9, DaBaby celebrated his Roddy Ricch collaboration “ROCKSTAR” hitting a billion streams on Spotify alone.
“Grammy nominated song of the year & Billboard #1 Hit for 7 weeks in a row is now at a BILLION+ streams on @spotify alone,” he wrote on Instagram. “Real n-gga Rockstar, do anything but play wit em. appreciate y’all dearly for listening and enjoying. #ROCKSTAR.”
