“Da’ Dip” was the lead single released from Freak Nasty’s second album, Controversee…That’s Life…And That’s the Way It Is.
Upon its release in the summer of 1996, “Da’ Dip” failed to make an impact on the Billboard charts, charting low on both the R&B and rap charts. The song, however, managed to break through into the mainstream the following year, reaching #15 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Da’ Dip” was then certified gold by the RIAA on April 10, 1997 before reaching platinum certification on June 3rd of that year for sales of over one million copies.
To date, “Da’ Dip” is Freak Nasty’s only top 40 hit, labeling him a one-hit wonder.
