DaBaby Lost His Brother To Suicide

In the wake of his brother, Glenn Johnson, reportedly taking his own life at 34 years old, DB briefly distanced himself from Instagram by deactivating his account. Johnson had struggled with mental health issues, which DaBaby has addressed in his music. A recent DaBaby tweet was a call for mental health awareness.

“MentalHealthAwareness ❗️ If you can’t get over depression GET HELP, you see a loved one struggling get them help, they refuse the help, MAKE em get treated anyway. You suffer from PTSD take that shit serious & get help! I’m bouta get a therapist my damn self! #LongLiveG🖤🕊”
