Tory Lanez recently sparked a debate about “why the f*ck was rap started,” and although he received some mixed reactions due to his own controversies, the topic is an interesting one regardless. Different artists use the impactful genre for various different reasons, and while some use Hip-Hop to help people through tough times or inspire resistance amongst persecuted groups of people, other rappers are more than satisfied with using the rap art form to entertain.
DaBaby appears to fall on the latter part of that spectrum because even during a 72-hour period in which he has been publicly blasted, boycotted, and reprimanded for making offensive and homophobic comments at Rolling Loud, the BLAME IT ON BABY has not sheered away from the spotlight. In an extremely surprising move, DaBaby has released a new song and music video titled “Giving What It’s Supposed To Give,” and throughout it, he reiterates all of the disrespectful comments that he’s currently being “canceled” for.
Taking a moment to contextualize his outlandish and disrespectful new release, DaBaby says, “Filmed the day before my Rolling Loud performance. It never seizes to amaze me the way God puts me in situations I’m already equipped to handle. Enjoy. #ITSONLYONEOFME.”
