DaBaby encountered a challenging phase in his career following controversial remarks he made at Rolling Loud in 2021, which garnered accusations of homophobia and led many to believe that his professional journey was irreparably damaged.
However, DaBaby's resurgence appears to be on the horizon with the release of his latest single, "Shake Sumn." This track has catapulted the North Carolina rapper to his highest chart position since his peak at No. 50 with "Red Light Green Light" during the summer of 2021.
Now, an influential voice in the industry, Fat Joe, boldly proclaims that DaBaby has successfully overcome the canceled culture. In a candid discussion on his podcast, Fat Joe expressed his admiration, stating, "As far as I’m concerned, DaBaby uncanceled himself. The guy’s a beast. DaBaby the rapper is unbelievable. I’ve seen him fighting back and he went from being the biggest in the world to getting canceled to fighting. You know, still making money and all that, but I’ve seen him on the grind. Every time I’ve seen him, I’ve said ‘Yo, stay strong. Stay focused, stay this.’ ‘Cause I think DaBaby and them are the new Terror Squad."
Fat Joe continued to commend DaBaby's unyielding work ethic, emphasizing, "The man wouldn’t stop working, wouldn’t give up. A lot of people give up. When you got the whole media, everybody going against you, most people are not built for the war. I’m explaining to you guys, DaBaby is ready for war! And he is battle-tested, and he smelled this money, he said ‘No, no, no.’ And then through being positive and fighting and going all out for himself, he punched a hole through the atmosphere. And now he’s poppin’! He is uncanceled!"
By refusing to succumb to the pressures that come with being ostracized, DaBaby has not only proven his mettle but has also paved the way for a remarkable comeback.
His story serves as an inspiration to all aspiring artists, highlighting the importance of perseverance and self-belief in the face of immense obstacles. DaBaby's triumphant resurgence in the music industry stands as a testament to his undeniable talent and unshakeable spirit.
