DaBaby Tries To Brush Off Questlove By Claiming He Doesn't Know Him. It Backfires.
DaBaby's attempt to fire Questlove quickly backfired.
The Roots legendary drummer publicly condemned DaBaby for the rapper's recent homophobic, sexist and derogatory remarks at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami last weekend. Questlove called the comments "morally wrong" in a long Instagram post on Thursday.
DaBaby responded Thursday night, claiming in posts on his Instagram stories that he didn't know who Questlove was, Billboard reported.
"I'm not even trying to be funny when I say ... I DON'T KNOW WHO DIS N **** DAWG IS," one post said.
He later added that he didn't care about losing Questlove as a fan and suggested that the hip hop icon was a follower.
Twitter users were quick to point out that perhaps a rapper shouldn't brag about not knowing Questlove or The Roots, whose influence in hip-hop began over three decades ago. In 2019 DaBaby released his debut studio album "Baby on Baby".
DaBaby faced widespread backlash after making a series of derogatory statements on stage about women, gay men and people living with HIV.
Spreading misinformation about HIV and AIDS, the rapper urged the crowd to hold up their phones "if you haven't shown up today with HIV / AIDS or another STD that will kill you in two to three weeks," according to the TMZ video recorded.
DaBaby initially doubled his comments, calling his remarks "a call to action" on a Monday Instagram live. Then he apologized on Tuesday on Twitter: “Anyone who has ever been affected by AIDS / HIV, you all have the right to be angry, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intention of offending anyone. So my apologies. But the LGBT community ... I don't trip over you guys, do I? Your whole business is your whole business. "
