DaBaby accepted the award in a green and pink ensemble, his fingers covered in glistening rings with bracelets and a chain to match, and a fedora atop his head. Upon his arrival onstage, he asked fans in the audience how he looked holding the esteemed award, and was met with a rising crescendo of cheers. During his speech, DaBaby reflected on "having the balls" to put out an album during the height of the pandemic. "It's nothing short of a blessing," he said. "If y'all don't press play, the music don't get heard."
