DaBaby has gotten himself into some serious trouble. The list of concert promoters and brand partners that have canceled the North Carolina rapper in the aftermath of his STUPID commentary regarding people in the LGBTQ community as well as people with HIV continues to grow.
There’s no doubt that DaBaby has received his cancellation notice, but there’s skepticism as to whether it is warranted. On Tuesday, Atlanta “rapper”, Trouble has a lot to say on Instagram.
“I’m not finna be on no politically correct shit or none of that shit dawg… I just rock how I rock and I feel how I feel,” Trouble began. “And you muthafuckas really starting to piss me the fuck off, bro. On lord, all this shit just fake as fuck. How in the fuck a muthafucka just sit back with a smile on your face on this fake ass cancel culture shit, watching a n-gga shit just demolish who you just lifting up, for one muthafucking mistake about shit.
“And you acting like a n-gga just went on this bitch and said, ‘Fuck all gays, I don’t fuck with no homos, none of this shit.’ N-gga said, ‘If you don’t got AIDs or HIV, put your muthafucking lighter up.’ Bitch, if I was in the stage I woulda put my lighter up… bitch, I don’t got it. What about the 180,000 muthafuckas who did put they lighters up out there in the stand?”
But I can’t put much weight on what he says. After all, this is same dude who said he’d let Drake FUCK HIS WIFE for a feature 🤦 🤦 🤦 .
Hanna Montana Miley Cyrus clapped back at DaBaby’s critics as well.
The singer went on Instagram to show support for DaBaby. She said, “It’s easier to cancel someone than to find forgiveness and compassion in ourselves or take the time to change hearts and minds,” she wrote. “There’s no more room for division if we want to keep seeing progress! Knowledge is power! I know I still have so much to learn!”
Kevin Hart went through this last year after refusing to apologize from some inflammatory tweets that were dug up from earlier in his career.
So what do you think? Has cancel culture done enough? or not enough? Should DaBaby be officially canceled? A number of radio stations have already stopped playing his music. But is he too big to cancel? Back in May, XXLMag reported that DaBaby is the rapper who has the most monthly streams on Spotify, surpassing Drake with 54,935,540 monthly listeners.
Rap legend, T.I. took a break from defending himself and his wife to weigh in on Dababy’s commentary as well. He said, “everyone up in arms and upset about what DaBaby said. I understand people saying that they feel that it’s insensitive,” T.I. said, according to Complex. “I think you guys have to understand that onstage, that’s not the place that rappers go to be sensitive and soothe everybody’s feelings. It’s a place to go to have a good time.”
But T.I. is facing his own legal woes and has has many of his contracts and partnerships canceled. So, he’s not exactly one to talk.
NLE Choppa thinks DaBaby will be aite. The Memphis-bred rapper shared a tweet, which read, “Dababy Gone Come Out Bigger Than Ever While Y’all Tryna Down Play The Man.”
This is far from over. The Music Midtown Festival in Atlanta, Georgia pulled the rapper from the lineup. He was also dropped from the Austin City Limits Festival, which is taking place in October of 2021. He’s also been dropped from iHeartRadio Music Festival, Parklife in the UK, Denver’s Summer Jam, and The Governor’s Ball. Ouch!
To his credit, he has apologized several times for his comments. (We have intentionally not repeated them) DaBaby posted this on social media:
