Heading to outer space (literally), multiplatinum Pontiac, MI rising rapper DDG blasts off to outer space on his new single “Elon Musk” [feat. Gunna] today. Listen to “Elon Musk”
On the track, a spacey 808-laden beat wobbles in between lithely plucked guitar. DDG leans into a slick and simmering flow before Gunna lands with his own unbreakable and undeniable bars. It all culminates on the viral-ready chant, “Like I’m Elon Musk.” DDG is currently training to be the first rapper in space, stay tuned for launch date to be revealed soon.
DDG has elevated the culture on his own terms. Last year, he graced the covers of KAZI Magazine, UPROXX, PREME, and XXLas part of the coveted 2021 Freshman Class. Not to mention, he has crossed the 1 billion stream threshold on the heels of his acclaimed project Die 4 Respect with OG Parker. It only sets the stage for a massive 2022 though.
DDG has quietly become one of rap’s hottest new stars. In addition to regularly attracting 6.3 million monthly listeners on Spotify, he has posted up over 1 billion streams, while his platinum-certified smash “Moonwalking In Calabasas” has surpassed 500 million-plus global streams and taken the #1 spot on Rap Caviar three separate times. He also delivered a knockout performance of “Moonwalking In Calabasas” on UPROXX Sessions—watch HERE.
Flexing with clever quotable bars, blockbuster hooks, and superstar power, DDG shakes up the status quo with unpredictable and undeniable bangers. After 2018’s Take Me Serious, he rose to the top of the hip-hop class on VALEDICTORIAN. Within just a year, the single “ARGUMENTS” scored his first gold certification. Igniting 2020, he achieved a major breakthrough with “Moonwalking In Calabasas (Remix)” [feat. BLUEFACE], earning a ubiquitous hit and his first platinum plaque in the process and paving the way for the acclaimed Die 4 Respect with OG Parker. Generating over a billion total streams and views and building a rabid fan base, DDG’s influence proves downright inescapable.
