DaBaby has opened up about the controversy surrounding the homophobic comments he made in 2021 during a live performance in a recent interview.
The multi-platinum rapper said he would have handled the situation differently if he had a chance to do it over again during an appearance on the latest season of LeBron James’ UNINTERRUPTED series The Shop.
When asked by host Maverick Carter if he’d change his response to what occurred, the rapper answered, “Absolutely, absolutely.” “That’s something that came out my own mouth and said, you know what I mean? Like as of late, not even as of late, like I would have apologized, like, I’m this type of person. Like, I’m going to fight tooth and nail about my character and my intentions. I’m not a bad person. I’m unfaltering on that.”
“Like when that shit happened bro, I had my own meal with Burger King. Like, a lot of the things I see my peers doin’ now, which I love to see it. I love to see that shit. These are things that I was blessed and fortunate enough to be able to accomplish in my first year as a mainstream artist.”
“I had a meal at Burger King. I shot the commercial, I still got the behind-the-scenes, like I had so much goin on, bro. Like, you have no idea. Like, I had so much goin’ on, you know what I’m sayin’? But, at the end of the day, if you become wrapped up in the negative shit, we’re so conditioned to rollin’ with the punches with social media, with whatever it is, whatever room we come into, okay we know we gotta adapt. Whatever space we in, we know we gotta adapt, whatever business it is, whatever game we’re playing, we gotta adapt, you know. And that’s who’s gonna excel.”
