DaBaby may have found an alternate route to release music following his collective “canceling” by the media at large. His homophobic laced rant at this years Rolling Loud fest has left him on many people’s bad side. While he initially apologized, it seems like he is walked back on his initial apology after deleting it completely from his social media. His new plan? To become and R&B singer.

I told you y’all digested that wrong 🤷🏾♂️but I ain’t gone lie I’m impressed.
Now show this same amount of support when a racist cop kill one of our black ass…YA NOT 😂
Da Baby decided to “hype” his audience up mid set with a very unorthodox list of commands to amp them during his festival performance. The most damaging part of his rant was when he tried to shoutout those who did not have HIV/AIDS claiming that it often kills people in “2 to 3 weeks”. “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, any of them deadly STDs that’ll make you d** in two, three weeks, put your cellphone light up,” DaBaby told the crowd at the Rolling Loud Festival. The troubling statement was met with anger from fans and critics, with many calling for him to be canceled.

His initial response was very dismissive, with him saying that his real fans understood his intend. “My gay fans, they take care of themselves. They ain’t got no nasty gay n***as, see what I’m saying? They ain’t no junkies on the street” he said on his IG stories. In a tweet he also said “Anybody who done ever been effected by [it] y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies”, before adding “But the LGBT community… I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.”

He eventually did an “official” apology that many deemed to little too late. “As a man who has had to make his own way from very difficult circumstances, having people I know publicly working against me— knowing that what I needed was education on these topics and guidance — has been challenging.” Since a lot of people did not buy it, he decided to take it back.
He’s back to making light of the situation, this time joking in a series of videos featuring him singing. “THEY DONE CANCELED YO DADDY TWIN I’M SWITCHING TO R&B, FU*K A RAP,” he captioned the clip.
