DDG Says YouTubers And Streamers Earn More Than Rappers: ‘It’s Not Even Close’

While many have dreams of attaining stardom through a music career, DDG dished on a potentially more lucrative avenue to success: streaming and video creation!

The rapper, who got his start as a YouTube content creator and continues to upload on the platform, spoke on the subject through Twitter on Tuesday.

Seemingly without provocation, DDG dove into a comparison between what he earns as a rapper and what he makes through YouTube. Specifically, he shared that YouTubers and streamers “make more money than rappers,” and he went as far as to add that “it’s not even close.”

Twitter Discusses DDG’s Proclamation

As is the case for situations like this, people swiftly began to chime in online. However, rather than tearing into DDG, many agreed with his statement.

Largely, the rationale was behind the fact that musicians are often indebted to their labels.

Fellow musician Cochise also agreed with DDG’s statement. In fact, the “Hatchback” artist even revealed that he’s been expressing similar sentiments “for years.”

Various YouTubers and Twitch streamers jumped into the conversation as well, including Mr. Beast, KSI, and Stable Ronaldo.


In spite of the widespread agreement, it was also stated that the comparison is dependent on how poppin’ the rapper is.

Others questioned why, if what he says is true, DDG would continue to pursue music when he could fully commit to YouTube instead. However, the answer was simple: “passion for it and another income.”

He Said What He Said!

Despite what people may have to say, DDG doubled down on his comment with a follow-up tweet.

“I ain’t arguing wit no n***a I’m richer than.. lol you got it lol bro.”

Humorously, DDG also called on Mr. Beast to back him up and “drop a screenshot of [his] analytics page.”

This situation comes on the heels of DDG becoming the talk of the Twitter timeline for sharing his “real voice”

As The Shade Room previously reported, the humorous moment went down during an appearance on the Dope As Usual podcast, and he left both hosts and Twitter users in awe!
