In the hook for “POP STAR,” Baby gets aggressive and says that he’s “ready to beat a n***a up” like he’s The Rock. While he was pumping iron, Johnson heard the line and took a time-out to show mad love to the rising star from North Carolina.
“Shoutout to my boy DaBaby,” said the wrestler. “His new album is out now called KIRK. This track right here is called ‘POP STAR’ with Kevin Gates. I appreciate the shoutout.” He goes on to hit his famous eyebrow raise when his name is mentioned in the song before congratulating both rappers on their success and their new albums.
Baby Jesus was happy to see that The Rock messed with the project, claiming high status as a result. “I’m officially a legend now dawg,” he typed as his caption, reposting the video to his account.
