Da Baby is heading on tour backed by Rolling Loud, the same music festival where his homophobic comments set off months of criticism in a stunning twist of events.
If you recall, Da Baby faced immense backlash at the Miami leg of the Rolling Loud music festival in July after making insensitive comments about people living with HIV/AIDS and the LGBTQ+ community. In the wake of his remarks, he doubled down on them, which caused many festivals to scrap him from their lineups. The “Suge” rapper remedied the situation by meeting with LGBTQ+ leaders and HIV/AIDS activists, who educated him on how harmful his comments were. He issued an apology, and it appears that all has been forgiven.
On Tuesday, Da Baby announced that he was gearing up for his Live Show Killa Tour sponsored by the music festival, which launched its massive concert series in 2015.
“The show you thought you’d never see again,” the 29-year-old wrote on Instagram, with a photo showing his tour dates. The U.S. portion of the tour will kick off in Chicago on November 26th before embarking on 21 tour stops.
Glad to see that Da Baby has redeemed himself. Let’s get back to the Bops.
