Hip Hop fans pay attention to who’s dating who just as much as they tune into the music. The new couple that’s been heating up lately is 2021 HipHopDX Rising Star DDG and R&B star Halle Bailey, and fans can’t get enough of the two.

During a recent conversation on DJ Akademiks’ Off the Record podcast, the Michigan native opened up about his blossoming relationship with Halle and professed his love for her. According to the Die 4 Respect rapper, his lady makes him a better artist and person.

“I honestly get inspired by my girl. She honestly motivated me to be better and work harder and get to certain levels,” he said. “I look up to her in a sense ’cause it’s, like, I never been around nobody that really… ’cause I feel like I’m always the motivator, I’m the inspirer. I’m the muthafucka inspiring muthafuckas to do better.”

He added, “It’s like I’m in a different mode now where I’m getting inspired by somebody. I feel like it’s healthy in that way for me ’cause it’s like a weight off my shoulders. It’s like, ‘Ok, I need to work harder.’ It’s challenging in a good way. It just makes me want to go harder versus feeling overwhelmed or some shit.”
