AceShowbiz - DaBaby goes above and beyond in narrating his life through his music. The North Carolina emcee released a new track called "Tough Skin" on Tuesday, August 9 along with its music video that shows him being crucified.

In the Reel Goats-directed visuals, the 30-year-old can be seen hanging on a cross. He is being lit on fire by a group of people in red suits with their faces obscured. The clip also features scenes of young DaBaby having a difficult upbringing.

"It wasn't a plate on the table, we ain't have nothin' to eat, uh/ Mama at her part-time job, when she get home, we gon' be sleep, yeah/ S**t, I had to figure it out, that's probably what made me unique, Baby you," he raps. "If these n***as struggle like me, they'd prolly let me be, uh/ But I got tough skin, I thought n***as already knew that."

In the chorus, DaBaby spits, "…I watched my mama have some tough skin/ It's why I take my problems and leave 'em tucked in." He continues, " 'Cause the world don't care nothin' 'bout 'еm/ I don't give a f**k then, yeah, this that tough skin."

"Tough Skin" serves as one of the singles off the rapper's upcoming album, "Baby on Baby 2". When teasing the record, he wrote on Instagram, "Let's get this Baby on Baby 2 s**t started." In a second post he noted, "Don't trip, it's just the warm up."

Meanwhile, during an appearance on the "Full Send" podcast in July, DaBaby shared, "This is the most attention I've paid to some music before I've dropped it." He went on to explain, "I'm gonna drop it at the beginning of August."

Earlier this year, DaBaby dropped "Better Than You", his collaboration mixtape with NBA YoungBoy a.k.a. YoungBoy Never Broke Again. The project boasts 12 songs, including "Hit", "On this Line", "Turbo", "Count on Me", as well as "Creeper". It also features "Syracuse", "Head Off", "Neighborhood Superstar" and "Bestie" among others.
