How tall is 42 Dugg?

42 Dugg is 5ft 1in (155cm).

His small stature first came to fans’ attention when he appeared next to Future in their music video for Maybach. The song, which appears on Dugg’s Free Dem Boyz tape, features the Mask Off rapper. Fans were quick to comment on how small Dugg looked next to Future’s 6ft 2in (188cm) frame.
