DaBaby isn’t letting up.
The “Rockstar” rapper has responded to Questlove in a series of Instagram Stories. “I ain’t even tryna be funny when I say… I do not know who dis n***a is dawg,” he wrote. “And I do not care bout losing you as a fan my boy lol @questlove. You or any other n***a who wanna play follow the leader. This superstar was a fan of is stand up n***a, yeen never seen one of these huh?”
Last night (July 28), Questlove made a statement on Instagram condemning DaBaby for his homophobic comments during his set at Rolling Loud Miami this past weekend. The Roots cofounder posted a screenshot that showed a list of artists—The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, The Isley Brothers, Rihanna, Sade, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Hiatus Kaiyote, Sault—but Baby’s name was scribbled out.
“I was hypothetically asked if I was curating an updated version of #SummerOfSoul who would be my acts? I gave my dream list,” he wrote. “And now I’m updating my list—because it’s 2021 and fuck the bullshit. I’m especially not here for any savagery (if you’re lost: Google the idiocy of the crossed out).”
DaBaby posted two more Instagram Stories after his direct response to Quest. “These n****s really think they gone influence people to stop fuckin w/ the influence,” he wrote on the next slide. “They go crazy bout what I say not yall. I got the influence and the nuts n***a. Y’all n****s cheerleaders.” You can see all three slides below.
This all comes after numerous artists have come out against DaBaby, including Dua Lipa and Elton John, among others. Baby initially defended his comments, but doubled down and has since continued to do so.
