Although commenters seemed to be 50/50 on the decision — DDG confirmed in his latest YouTube video that it would be his last. Additionally, the 25-year-old creator with 3.24 million subscribers wiped his entire channel clean of past vlogs and video content.

More Details Regarding DDG’s “Last YouTube Video”

In the video titled, “My Last YouTube Video… **I deleted everything**“, the rapper says he is more passionate about music than creating YouTube videos.

  “I was doing Youtube to eat. I was doing Youtube to pay my bills and make money… if you told me right now you wouldn’t make a dollar off rapping, I would still do it. I don’t want no plan B.”

The 25-year-old’s decision comes on the heels of his latest single, ‘Famous,” which had some people criticizing his lyrics after he opened up about his insecurities in his relationship with Halle Bailey.

“I been so insecure that I be thinkin’ you really be f*****g n****s you in movies with// But on the internet, I just be coolin’ it, but in my head, a n***a really losin’ it// Gotta be payin’ good ’cause you keep doin’ it, I might just tweet somethin’ just to ruin it// I got a platform, I’m abusin’ it// It’s a couple things about your job I wanna know // When you shoot your movie, do these n****s turn you on? // When you leave the set, do y’all still text each other phone? // Just because they filmin’ it, it don’t mean that it ain’t wrong.”

Many were appalled at the rapper’s lyrics and suggested that Bailey break up with him. Additionally, many social media users responded by calling DDG a “failed rapper.” However, the 25-year-old reportedly addressed the criticism and explained that the song is just for “entertainment.”

The Rapper Addresses His Previous “Twitter Antics”
DDG is no stranger to clapping back on Twitter. Earlier this year, the rapper reportedly found himself involved in a feud with content creator Solluminati. Solluminati fired shots at DDG, claiming his name stood for “Doo Doo Garbage.”
In each social media incident, DDG’s rap career appears to be the punchline. However, his recent pivot could be an effort to prove the naysayers wrong.

Earlier this week, the 25-year-old addressed his past behavior, which may also point to some upcoming changes.

“Looking back on my Twitter antics and rants these pass few months ngl I was trippin”

Despite DDG’s current success, he has admitted that quitting youtube is a significant risk and could end his relevancy. Last year, he ignited a heated Twitter debate when he said YouTubers/streamers make more money than rappers.
