In an interview with Lyrical Lemonade last year, DDG spoke of his start on the video-streaming platform. He explained: “I been doing YouTube for like six years maybe.

“My rap career started back when I used to do little diss tracks on YouTube, but they used to hit though. I would get five million views here, ten million views there.”
