How to produce a DaBaby style beat on BandLab

One of hip hop’s biggest breakout stars in 2019, DaBaby has already got three banging albums under his belt and the North Carolina rapper doesn’t look like he’s going to take his foot off the pedal any time soon. From not knowing he went viral on TikTok to landing so many No. 1s on the charts, DaBaby is one of the most talked-about rappers today.

Armed with a brutal and distinct rapping style, a flow characterized by his staccato and syllable-smashing delivery, DaBaby has a signature sound that’s brand new and exciting. You’ll sometimes find him rapping immediately the second the beat hits, going from 0-60 in less than the time it takes you to fasten your seatbelts.

In this video tutorial, we’ll show you how to create a DaBaby style beat from scratch on BandLab’s web Mix Editor.
