DaBaby had the perfect reaction to landing his first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with Roddy Ricch collab "Rockstar." The track from the MCs third studio album, Blame It On Baby, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated May 2, gives DaBaby his first No. 1, while landing Ricch his second.

In the first in a series of tweets about his chart coronation on Monday (June 8), DaBaby wrote simply, "I came from nothing."

DaBaby expanded on the joy of his latest chart triumph in another tweet a short time later, writing, "Nah fr, I really came from nothing. I'm not perfect at all but look, I done been through it all, and still got PLENTY more to go through. If you willing to go through it with me, grab my hand let's go. If not, F--K YA. I wish you the best."
