DDG says he wants to experiment with rock & roll.

DDG hinted at experimenting outside of hip-hop on Twitter, Friday, while labeling the genre "dry." Instead, he expressed interest in venturing into either country music or rock & roll. In his tweet, he wrote: "Hip hop so dry i might start doing country music.. matter fact somebody send me some rock & roll beats."

Fans didn't seem excited about the idea of DDG moving outside of hip-hop. When The Shade Room shared the post on Instagram, one joked: "Not him threatening us with more music." Another added: "He a stay at home daddy now. Leave the music to Halle [Bailey]." Others defended the rapper with one commenting: "The fact that yall act like ddg makes bad music [laughing emoji] his music is GOOD."
