DA BABY had a bone to pick with those making a fuss over his infamous comments towards the LGBTQ+ community at Rolling Loud Miami last month.
Because other than the LGBTQ+ community, Baby doesn’t feel anyone else should anything to say about the situation, as it doesn’t concern them.
So for that reason, the platinum selling rapper took the stage as Hot 97 Summer Jam on the weekend to address the situation once more, and to label those he claims should be minding their business as cry babies.

While on stage, which was originally reported by Hot New Hip Hop, the North Carolina native said: “Check this out, Other than the people that, you know, was truly offended, I feel like the rest of y’all motherfxckers being cry babies.”
It’s been a tough month for Da Baby, since making the remarks (which he has apologised for) that upset so many people, he’s faced an enormous amount of backlash.
Several companies such as Boohoo distanced themselves from him and he was dropped from a number of shows including Parklife.
But Hot 97 still let Baby perform at this year’s Summer Jam despite all the negativity surrounding him, and he also let them know how grateful he is to them for letting him do so.
Baby thanked the radio station for not turning their back on him and allowing him to continue sharing his talents to the world.
He added: “[Hot 97] allowed me to share my gift, share my blessing with y’all out here live on this stage amongst all the chaos and all the backlash.
“So hats off to y’all for that… They accepted my sincerity and all my apologies 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.
“And Hot 97 was also willing to stick they neck out on the line, willing to go against all odds with everything going on out here in the world, and still allow me to come out here on this stage and utilize they platform to help the world move forward.”
