On Friday (November 12), 2021 HipHopDX Rising Star DDG performed his 2020 certified platinum remix to the smash-hit “Moonwalking in Calabasas” on the Dean Tent stage. Not only did DDG get the crowd hyped as soon as the beat dropped, but he also brought out Blueface to join him live.
Blueface also performed his 2019 verse to NLE Choppa‘s “Shotta Flow” and his 2018 viral-hit “Thotiana.”
The two paired up for 2020’s “Moonwalking in Calabasas” remix and currently boasts over 68 million YouTube views. The single is from DDG’s 2020 project with OG Parker, Die 4 Respect. The breakout hit gave DDG all the momentum needed to solidify why he’s one of the hottest artists coming up, as well as a DX Rising Star.
DDG has a song out now with Nakkia Gold called “Trap Santa” just in time for the holidays.
According to The Detroit News, a federal judge sentenced 42 Dugg — born Dion Hayes — to three years of probation and slapped him with a $90,000 fine for illegal possession of a firearm.
The “We Paid” rapper was indicted on illegal gun possession charges back in March of 2020, after federal agents received an anonymous tip that he had fired a weapon inside an Atlanta gun range. Although it shouldn’t be an issue to fire a gun at a gun range, the problem was the Detroit native couldn’t possess firearms after being convicted of felony firearm possession following a 2010 carjacking.
After learning his case had been finally closed, 42 kept it short and sweet in his reaction on Twitter with “Tired.”
However on Thursday (November 11), 42 Dugg had more to say when he went after SayCheeseTV for not posting about him beating his case while reporting on his arrest prior. Dugg posted a series of photos with his lawyer, who he deemed to be his “GOAT.”
“Who is YOU TA ME,” he wrote. “Wanna google summ BITCH GOOGLE MEE @saycheesetv I ain’t see no he beat his case post LOL oh ok.”
