DaBaby is a liar.
A Twitter user earlier this week shared a four-second video of the controversial rapper inside a Nashville Cheesecake Factory. The video was allegedly shot just hours before DaBaby’s show at Marathon Music Works, which featured special guests ZayTheGOAT and K Carbon. According to the user, who goes by the Twitter handle @Skyleridkbro, DaBaby was at the restaurant trying to give away concert tickets.
“He (DaBaby) came to my job yesterday to give out free tickets,” she wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. “He left and returned with a cameraman.”
DaBaby is seen walking into the restaurant in the video, before someone off-camera asks, “Why is he here again?”
According to the Twitter user, some of her coworkers accepted the tickets, while she and others declined.
“His friend asked if my friend and I wanted some and began to hand them to us, but we said, ‘No thanks.'” I like his music, but I wasn’t in the mood to go.”
The tweet went viral, making headlines on websites such as The Shade Room and The Jasmine Brand. On Friday night, DaBaby appeared to respond to the reports on Instagram, where he posted footage of his recent Atlanta concert.
“Whoever paid them blogs to post that nonsense should get their money back.” “It ain’t working, n***a,” he captioned the photo. “We’re actually showing up in real life and flipping shit upside DOWN.”
Marathon Music Works has not responded to DaBaby’s ticket sales; however, an Instagram post promoting the event drew a flood of negative comments.
“Who approved this?” “Wrong look,” one person commented.
“Lol. Why would you bring this guy in for a performance? “Not great,” said another.
The report follows DaBaby’s attempt to dismiss claims that he was no longer relevant. The rapper’s “fall from grace” began in the summer of 2021, when he made sexist and homophobic remarks during his set at Rolling Loud Miami. DaBaby has since lost a number of business deals and performance opportunities.
His most recent album, Baby on Baby 2, debuted at No. 34 on the Billboard 200 chart with 17,000 album equivalent units, a significant decrease from the 124,000 units earned by Blame It on Baby in 2020. Despite the fact that the Baby on Baby 2 numbers were disappointing, DaBaby insisted that they were “not bad for da BlackBalled Baby.”
