Charlotte rapper DaBaby is quitting rap music. He went online with a hilarious video about what genre he was switching to.
After recent weeks of controversy and backlash, he says he’s switching to R&B. Baby added a laughing emoji and made it clear it was a joke, playing into the recent cancelations of himself.
“THEY DONE CANCELED YO DADDY TWIN I’M SWITCHING TO R&B, FU*K A RAP.”
New York rapper 50 Cent thinks things will be alright for DaBaby, so maybe he should stick to hip-hop after all. In light of the recent drama and controversy over the North Carolina native’s Rolling Loud comments, Fif has dished out on the situation.
In a recent interview, 50 Cent discussed how he think’s Baby’s career will turn out just fine. Curtis Jackson first gave nothing but praise to DaBaby for his talent. He also noted how his rise to superstardom and later dished out on the standards certain big names are held to.
“He is a really talented, special artist, right? And he just transitioned from being in that pool that everyone’s in as a rap artist. Like, they didn’t notify him that he’s turning into a superstar. There’s nobody that tells you, ‘Now, you’re held to these standards’ that are mainstream standards that you can’t say things and you can’t do these different things. He didn’t have a publicist involved and this is why the response took so long. Even his apology, the first apology attempt at it, was what made it worse. You know what it is? When a person makes a general statement, ‘cause he made a general statement on stage, he’s not directing that to any individual, but what happens is he’s still new and he’s being attacked by individuals.”
Fifty noted how people tried to cancel R&B artist Chris Brown, whose career ended up getting back on track following his publicized abuse of Rihanna. He made his opinion on the matter clear and said Baby will “bounce back”.
“He’s only two years into his career. There’s no artist development. There’s no strong A&R in this. There’s definitely no media training. Remember they tried to cancel Chris Brown five or six times.”
Besides the BMF boss, Charlotte rap star DaBaby at least has one other person on his side. Atlanta rapper Trouble recently went on a nearly four-minute rant on social media vocalizing his support for Baby.
Trouble went off on Instagram, and made his point very clear. He made it be known he didn’t care about being politically correct and discussed many things. Trouble added how unfair it was for everybody to be cancelling DaBaby over his recent comments and literally talked until he was out of breath.
“Fux ah cancle culture!! This jus how I feel!!”
“I’m not finna be on no politically correct shit or none of that sh*t dawg… I just rock how I rock and I feel how I feel, And you muthafuc*as really starting to piss me the fu*k off, bro. On lord, all this sh*t just fake as fu*k. How in the fuck a muthafuc*a just sit back with a smile on your face on this fake a*s cancel culture shit, watching a n*gga sh*t just demolish who you just lifting up, for one muthafuc*ing mistake about sh*t. And you acting like a n*gga just went on this b*tch and said, ‘Fu*k all gays, I don’t fu*k with no homos, none of this shit.’ N*gga said, ‘If you don’t got AIDs or HIV, put your muthafuc*ing lighter up.’
Everyone has something to say about North Carolina rapper DaBaby’s controversial comments during his Rolling Loud performance – and most of their comments aren’t positive like Trouble’s. From Elton John to Madonna to Miley Cyrus, it was only a matter of time before New York rapper and singer, Azealia Banks shared her thoughts.
DaBaby’s comments at Rolling Loud Miami was the sound heard ’round the world. These comments have resulted in major backlash and calls for the end of his career. Baby has been dropped from around 7 music festivals at which he was set to perform, in addition to losing sponsorship deals with brands like BooHoo. Despite this, for Azealia Banks it is not these comments which pushed her over the edge.
Banks is not without controversy of her own, in fact her whole career is centered around her beefs with various celebrities and the unpredictable nature of her social media comments.
This time Azealia has chosen to speak out against DaBaby who also shares a checkered past. In an instagram story post Banks brought up DaBaby’s March 2020 incident where he punched a female fan in the face, knocking her to the ground. In the post she dismissed the “performative cancelling” of Baby that is happening now and advocated for him to be official canceled regardless of any apologies.
“Y’all should have BEEN canceled dababy when he was caught on camera punching a female fan in the face. I’m not believing any of this performative canceling ppl are doing now when everyone so quick to forget that happened. Apology or not, Keep him canceled.”
