Rapper/ YouTuber, DDG, stopped by the Zen studios to sit down with Nick Cannon and talk about his rapid success off the internet. The young rapper has definitely mastered the power of social media and has used his platforms to push his brand to its fullest capacity.
Getting his start on YouTube posting daily vlogs and prank videos, DDG gradually built a channel dedicated to his music. Among his three channels, the rapper now has over 5 million subscribers!
It’s only going up from here for the 22-year-old. His latest song featured on his music channel is, “Why/ Arguments Pt. 2″ with nearly 2 million views. When it comes to entrepreneurship, the Pontiac-made rapper is wise beyond his years! During the firing squad round, DDG said the worst advice he’s received is to stay in school. He believes that had he stayed in school, he wouldn’t be where he is today.
When DDG got through the firing round, it was time for a game of Connect 4. Before taking the dub, the Michigan native said, “I respect you as a person, Nick.”
Nick put up a good fight but, when it came down to it, DDG was going to win regardless! Nick was stuck in a trap and DDG walked away one band richer!
