DaBaby at Summer Jam 2021
DaBaby is back for Summer Jam. He found himself in some hot water last month as a result of his homophobic, vulgar comments at Rolling Loud. After his removal from a number of festivals like Lollapalooza and loss of partnerships, the “Goin Baby” rapper continues to seek redemption.
Despite a great deal of criticism, some are stunned at how fast DaBaby came back from being cancelled.
Hot 97 graciously revived his music career, affording him the opportunity to hit the Summer Jam stage. In fact, his Sunday performances serve as his first step to redemption. He immediately offered more apologies for his misguided, blanket statements.
A video played with the rapper spewing his apology prior to his outpouring of gratitude for Hot97 and its decision to give him another platform. His current acknowledgement of his mistakes echoed past apologies.
“They accepted my sincerity and all my apologies,” DaBaby referenced Summer Jam organizers, “when I said I never, ever meant to offend anybody or say anything to make anybody feel any type of way live on that stage a few weeks ago.
Following the apology, the Charlotte native’s set amped up the crowd. Then he recorded himself floating through the crowd.
His Calculated Remarks
If DaBaby learned anything, it should be to think before speaking, especially if comments are made with an insensitive tone. People make mistakes. However, it is more about how one responds to their wrongdoing in humility than it is about dismissing others’ perceptions of said behavior or commentary.
The world just needs to know that DaBaby has grown since his one month career hiccup. Yet the jury is still out on that because he threw shots calling unoffended people “crybabies” as “CryBaby” featuring Meg Thee Stallion played.
