Newcomer DaBaby is looking to solidify his Rookie of the Year campaign by ending 2019 on a high note with the release of his forthcoming album “Kirk”, due out Friday. The Charlotte, NC native made the announcement via social media. The album’s cover art features an old photo of DaBaby as a youngster on his father’s lap celebrating one of his birthdays. The rapper kicked off the “Kirk” promotion with the release of the single “Intro” last week. The project includes special guest appearances by Migos, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Chance The Rapper, Moneybagg Yo, Lil Baby, Stunna 4 Vegas, YK Osiris and Kevin Gates. It’s been quite a run for DaBaby, who has gone from unknown to national hit maker. Fans can be sure there’s more to come.
