DaBaby has been falling off a cliff, in terms of popularity among fans, over the past month. At the Rolling Loud festival, in Miami, last month, he made comments that were against people with HIV/AIDS, and members of the LGBTQ community. That resulted in over 10 festivals scratching him from their lineups, coming up.
Last night though, the Charlotte rapper was able to perform at MetLife Stadium, in East Rutherford, NJ. A prerecorded video also played, where he thanked Hot 97 and Summer Jam, for letting him showcase his talents. DaBaby also emphasized how they accepted his apology.
“[Hot 97] allowed me to share my gift, share my blessing with y’all out here live on this stage amongst all the chaos and all the backlash,” DaBaby said. “So hats off to y’all for that… They accepted my sincerity and all my apologies when I said I never, ever meant to offend anybody or say anything to make anybody feel any type of way live on that stage a few weeks ago. And Hot 97 was also willing to stick they neck out on the line, willing to go against all odds with everything going on out here in the world, and still allow me to come out here on this stage and utilize they platform to help the world move forward.”
DaBaby also performed “Cry Baby,” as he was featured on that Megan Thee Stallion record. After he was done, he said people were being “cry babies” towards him.
“Check this out. Other than the people that, you know, was truly offended, I feel like the rest of y’all motherfuckers being cry babies.”
DaBaby’s next performance will be at Boosie Badazz’s birthday party, on August 28. Check out DaBaby performing at Summer Jam, along with his video address there, below.
