DaBaby’s first rap name was Baby Jesus

Before Jonathan Lyndale Kirk was known as DaBaby, in 2015 his first rap name was Baby Jesus, he then changed it to DaBaby. DaBaby performed under the moniker, Baby Jesus, until 2017. Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, DaBaby took off after he released his debut album Baby on Baby in 2019.

During an interview with XXL, DaBaby talked about his name change: “shows me the amount of love and respect people have for me. To change the name and not lose any traction, that’s something a lot of people have trouble doing.”

Packing the mail it’s gone!
