DaBaby Emerges Victorious Over ‘Cancel Culture’ 

Share this

Two years ago, Superstar rapper Dababy caused a lot of controversies during his performance at the 2021 Rolling Loud Festival in Miami. 

On stage at the festival, he said:“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of [those] deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up,”

The rockstar crooner didn’t stop there, he further said,  “Ladies, if your p#### smells like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking a n####’s dick in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”

His fans weren’t too happy and critics were quick to point out his comments as homophobic. This backlash led to the rapper missing out on partnership deals and other gigs. 

Apologetic, Dababy tendered an apology to the LGBTQ community but his apology post was deleted after a week. 

 Prior to the incident,  Dababy topped the chat with his single “Rock Star” featuring Roddy Rich. But since his public controversy which has taken a hit on his career, the public is curious to know if his career will survive the fall. 

In 2022, the rapper’s single” Neighbourhood Superstar” featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again, made it to the Billboard Hit 100 and stayed for one week. 

However, recently in an interview with 92.3’s Bootleg Key Dababy admits that he has survived the cancel culture. 

In the interview, Bootleg Key said: “I’ve been riding with you for a long time, and I’m just super happy that you got through this weird cancel cloud. You have officially defeated cancel culture,”

DaBaby responded, “For sure… We’re gonna stay on top where we belong.”

This year,  Dababy’s single “Shake Sumn” made the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 69. The single has held the spot for most popular songs in America unchallenged seven times this year. 

What a comeback!
