He’ll be a full-time CEO of his record label.

DaBaby may still be a new jack in the music industry, but the rapper doesn’t plan on sticking around as an artist for too much longer. 

In a recent interview with XXL, DaBaby announced his intentions to get out of rapping in the near future. “Five year’s I’m (going to) be retired in five years,” he said.
