AceShowbiz - DaBaby was seemingly unbothered by mistreatment he got at the Rolling Loud California. Despite getting water bottles thrown at him, the North Carolina native kept performing on the festival stage.
During his Sunday, December 12 set, the 29-year-old emcee entertained fans with his hit song "ROCKSTAR". Unfortunately, several objects were thrown at him, including water bottles. However, instead of confronting the culprits, he hyped up the crowd by rapping the lyrics.
After a video of the incident surfaced online, many applauded DaBaby for his reaction. "He better than me. I would've went home," one person opined, with one adding, "He's better than me, I would've started throwing stuff back to the crowd." A third chimed in, "even if the crowd was dead , he still had the energy still."
The incident didn't make the show less interesting though, at least for DaBaby. The hip-hop star appeared to still have a great time as he jumped into the audience to rap "Suge" lyrics along with his fans.
This was not the first time DaBaby got an unpleasant welcome onstage. During his gig at Rolling Loud in Miami back in July, someone threw a shoe at him, prompting the rapper to pause his performance and screamed, "Who the f**k threw that motherf**king busted a** god-damn Adida?"
The ordeal occurred before DaBaby made "insensitive" HIV/AIDS comments and homophobic rant at the same festival. He has since drawn backlash and even got cut from several events such as Austin City Limits, iHeartRadio, Lollapalooza and U.K.'s Parklife festivals.
DaBaby then addressed his Rolling Loud controversy when performing at Hot 97's Summer Jam 2021 on August 22. "I never in my life meant to offend anybody, you know, and I apologize... that ain't even how I rock," he said at that time.
"But check this out, other than the people that was truly offended, I feel like the rest of y'all motherf**kers are being cry babies," DaBaby added, before breaking out into his hit single with Megan Thee Stallion, "Cry Baby".
