BIOGRAPHY

 CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA NATIVE “DABABY” BEGAN RAPPING IN DECEMBER 2014. IN JANUARY 2015, WITH LESS THAN A MONTH OF EXPERIENCE AS AN ARTIST, HE WENT ON WITH THE RELEASE OF HIS DEBUT MIXTAPE TITLED, “NONFICTION,” UNDER THE NAME “BABY JESUS. THIS RELEASE ACQUIRED OVER 10,000 STREAMS, IN THE FIRST 48 HOURS, WITH NO PROMOTION, OUTSIDE OF POSTS ON HIS INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. DABABY’S BUZZ QUICKLY SPREAD THROUGHOUT CHARLOTTE AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS, BECOMING THE FUEL THAT EVENTUALLY IGNITED DABABY’S CONTAGIOUS BRAND AND SUBSEQUENT MUSIC CAREER. A FEW MONTHS LATER, DABABY BOOKED A SPONTANEOUS FLIGHT TO AUSTIN, TEXAS, FOR “SXSW 2015,” WHERE HE RECEIVED THE OPPORTUNITY TO PERFORM HIS NEW MUSIC, ON SEVEN DIFFERENT STAGES, OVER THE COURSE OF THREE DAYS. WHAT EVERYONE THEN LEARNED WAS THAT ‘DABABY’ WASN’T JUST ANOTHER LOCAL RAPPER WHO HAPPENED TO PUT OUT A GREAT PROJECT, BUT WAS ALSO A FEARLESS PERFORMER. WITH NO PRIOR PERFORMING EXPERIENCE, LET ALONE SPEAKING ON A MICROPHONE PERIOD, DABABY WAS A STANDOUT PERFORMER, AMONGST THE MASSES. BY THE TIME SXSW ENDED LARGE CROWDS WERE CHANTING THE LYRICS TO HIS SINGLE “BABY JESUS,” SOME EVEN APPROACHING HIM FOR AUTOGRAPHS. DABABY ACQUIRED A NUMEROUS AMOUNT OF FANS, FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, DURING SXSW, WHICH TURNED INTO A CULT FOLLOWING.UPON RETURNING TO CHARLOTTE, NC THE CITY THEN KNEW FOR SURE THAT WHAT THEY HAD IN DABABY WAS MORE THAN A LOCAL ARTIST WITH BEGINNERS LUCK, BUT A POTENTIAL SUPERSTAR, WHO SEEMED TO EMERGE OUT OF NOWHERE. THAT SEPTEMBER, HE FOLLOWED UP HIS NEW FOUND SUCCESS WITH ANOTHER MIXTAPE TITLED “SO DISRESPECTFUL.” EVEN THOUGH JOHNATHAN HAD NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE ENGINEERING MUSIC, DABABY DECIDED TO SHOW HOW EASY HE CREATES GREAT MUSIC, BY RECORDING EVERY TRACK ON HIS NEW PROJECT, AT HIS HOME STUDIO. THERE IS EVEN MENTIONED IN THE INTRO THAT HE RECORDED SOME OF THE SONGS IN HIS UNDERWEAR. NEVERTHELESS, THIS MIXTAPE SURPASSED 17,000 STREAMS, IN UNDER 48 HOURS, AGAIN WITH NO ADDITIONAL PROMOTION OUTSIDE OF HIS INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT. (@BABYJESUS704) HE CLAIMS THAT HE PUT THE MIXTAPE OUT JUST TO SHOW THAT HE’S JUST AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER THAN ANY ARTIST IN THE GAME. THIS PAST DECEMBER, DABABY RELEASED HIS 1ST INDEPENDENT ALBUM, “GOD’S WORK: RESURRECTED,” VIA EMPIRE DISTRIBUTION. HIS LEAD SINGLE, “LIGHT SHOW,” HAS BECOME A VIRAL HIT, GARNERING OVER 270,000 VIDEO VIEWS AND EVEN MORE AUDIO STREAMS. THE AMOUNT OF EVOLUTION IN DABABY AS AN ARTIST, FROM THE FIRST NINE MONTHS, IS ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE, BUT AT THE SAME TIME UNDENIABLE. IN THE WORDS OF THE YOUNG MASTERMIND, “I THINK IM BABY JESUS!”
