Naturally, this resulted in a surprise appearance by Drake.
"2018, 2017, I used to watch you rep your city," Drake told DaBaby after joining him onstage. "I used to watch you love your city. And look, we don't say this to each other enough as rappers but I wanna say congratulations. You're killing this."
Drake then turned his attention to the audience, teasing something new for next year. "I love you with all my heart," he said. "I'mma go back to the crib and try to finish this album up so we can turn up in 2020."
DaBaby added that he's going to "pull up on him later and put a verse on the motherfuckin' album."
Meanwhile, DaBaby is up for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, not to mention he has two 2019 releases that have both made frequent appearances amid year-end Best Of discussions.
Earlier this month, DaBaby made his Saturday Night Live debut.
