More and more music festivals are turning away from Dababi (29). The American rapper lost his credibility last week over some anti-gay comments while performing at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami. Lollapalooza in Chicago canceled his performance, and The Governors Ball in New York at the end of September has done the same now.
If you don’t have HIV, AIDS, or another deadly sexually transmitted disease that kills you within two or three weeks, put your cell phone up in the air. “Guys, if you don’t blow up the other guys in the parking lot, put your cell phone in the air,” American rapper Dababi said to the amazement of many during his performance at Rolling Loud Miami last week.
DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, launched his first mixtape in 2015, but it has mainly spread in recent years. His second studio album Kirk from 2019 reached number one on the Billboard 200. One year later he was able to repeat that feat with the album Blame It on Baby. hit one rock star (with Roddy Ricch) from this album spent seven weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. This song also earned three Grammy nominations.
Recently DaBaby was with the song lift, in collaboration with Dua Lipa, had another hit. Rappers can be found at many music festivals in the United States this summer.
This appears to be changing now. Some controversial statements have discredited DaBaby, causing many regulators to remove it from their program. Lollapalooza in Chicago was the first to do so. DaBaby was supposed to perform there last Sunday, but was canceled at the last minute. “Lollapalooza is based on diversity, inclusion, respect and love. With that in mind, DaBaby will not be performing in Grant Park tonight,” the festival said on Twitter.
Today, Conservative Ball has followed suit. This festival will be taking place in New York at the end of September with a lot of big names. For example, we find Billie Eilish, A$AP Rocky, J Balvin, Megan Thee Stallion, and Post Malone on the bill. DaBaby was originally in the lineup on Friday, but that has changed.
“Founders Entertainment will not tolerate hate and discrimination in any form,” the organization wrote on Twitter. The rapper will soon be replaced by another artist.
