North Carolina rapper DaBaby‘s Rolling Loud performance has made headlines for a myriad of reasons, one of them being his surprise guest Tory Lanez and people having mixed reactions.
DaBaby Brings Tory Lanez On-Stage at Rolling Loud
DaBaby shocked the Rolling Loud audience when he undressed a man in costume to reveal that man was in fact Tory Lanez. Tory arrived in a bobble head suit and stood next to Baby on stage, DaBaby then bet the crowd $1 Million if they could guess who it was in the suit. This guest appearance has led to much uproar online as a result of Lanez, DaBaby, and Megan Thee Stallion‘s past history.
DaBaby has been a long time collaborator and friend to Megan but that all fell apart when DaBaby put out a song and video with Tory Lanez, who allegedly shot Thee Stallion in the foot back in July 2020. Thee Stallion and DaBaby then had a heated conversation on Twitter shortly after “SKAT” dropped, which ended with Megan and DaBaby unfollowing each other.
Tory Lanez then further fueled flames with his recent Hot 97 freestyle in which he points the blame at being framed by Meg for him and his peers not getting the rewards he feels they deserved.
Whatever side you stand on, DaBaby bringing out Tory Lanez during his set was still a huge statement, and one of the most talked about moments from Rolling Loud Miami sending the internet in a tail spin.
DaBaby + 50 Cent Show Love
It seems DaBaby has a pretty dope mentor and one of the most successful Black men in the entertainment biz. The rap heavyweight has let the world into his low-key close-knit relationship with none other than hip-hop heavyweight 50 Cent, who has vowed to keep him on the right path.
The “BOP” hit-maker posted a photo alongside Fif, and showed major love in the caption. Baby says he’s going to use the advice he received and was mad thankful.
Curtis Jackson kept it a buck and noted losing rising rapper Pop Smoke, who was murdered in 2020, before he could really understand how to move out here.
“Somebody I been studying for a MINUTE lent me a few hours of his time today. N*ggas so scared to let me in the room they f*cked around & let me end up in the room w/ @50cent 🤦🏾♂️ BIG MISTAKE! Beyond grateful for the game📚 Couldn’t have come from a better source.💯 Now watch me put this shit to use👀 #BackToWork”
50 Cent went into the comments section and said DaBaby already understood a lot and promised to teach him all the mistakes he made so they weren’t repeated by the 29-year-old.
“I lost pop before he could get it, This one already got it and he listen. I’m a teach him all the mistakes i made, so he can be better than me. THIS IS HIP HOP!”
