After his contentious statements at Rolling Loud, DaBaby took a massive L. In an interview with Hot 97's "Ebro in the Morning" this week, the rapper discussed the outrage he received after making homophobic and sexist slurs during his performance at the Miami festival in July 2021.
Following the issue, he was barred from performing at a number of prominent festivals, including Governors Ball, Lollapalooza, iHeartRadio Music Festival, Austin City Limits, and Day N Vegas. According to DaBaby, the consequences cost him a fortune, namely $100 million.
“I’m not into all the conspiracy theories, this and that, until you see it really cost a ni**a $100 million within a year’s span,” he said.
When Peter Rosenberg indicated that things would not have "blown up the same way," DaBaby said, "F**k no, it wouldn't have went that way."
Ebro questioned why he thought bringing Lanez on stage was a good idea. "I don't look at it in terms of good or negative. "I ain't that engaged in that business," DaBaby explained, stressing that it wasn't done to "antagonize" Megan. "I couldn't give a damn."
DaBaby said in another interview with Big Boy on Real 92.3 that he lost $30 million as a result of his words. “$20-30 million that I woulda had before the ball dropped,” he said. “I had $30 million worth of shows on the schedule before December 31.”
