DaBaby er ekstremt dedikeret over for sine fans. Da den 27-årige rappers blev forhindret i at nå frem i tide til den koncert, han skulle give i sin hjemby Charlotte i torsdags, valgte DaBaby at underholde de fremmødte fans over FaceTime.
Problemerne skyldtes, at DaBabys jetfly brød sammen og derfor ikke var i stand til at lette fra New York torsdag aften. »Jeg kan ikke komme mig over det faktum, at jeg har svigtet mine fans (min familie) ved ikke at nå frem«, skrev en skuffet DaBaby på Instagram. Men rapperen gav ikke op så let.
Det lykkedes ham at nå et kompromis med koncertarrangørerne, så han i stedet kunne få lov at optræde via FaceTime. DaBaby fik sin medrapper Stunna 4 Vegas til at forklare situationen for publikum, og så blev der ellers givet los over FaceTime: »Jeg har lige set mig selv rocke et Coliseum over FaceTime«, skrev en begejstret DaBaby efterfølgende på Instagram.
Vi har tidligere skrevet om DaBaby under titlen »årets bedste nye rapper«. I går aftes gav rapperen koncert under ‘Saturday Night Live’.

Due to circumstances beyond my control I was unable to make it my show in my OWN. city last night??♂️ Paid extra for a jet just to make sure this type of shit wouldn’t happen. Although Baby a firm believer in everything happening for a reason I can’t get over the fact that I let my fans(FAMILY) down by not being able to make it. Thanks to my fast moving team and a few solid supporters at @power98fm we figured out a way to broadcast me live on the jumbo screen at the concert on a FaceTime call. #BDBENT Super Star @stunna4vegas held it down and explained to the audience what was goin on. Soon as they heard my voice and saw my face on the screen over a FaceTime call the whole arena turnt up! I just witnessed myself rock a coliseum through a FaceTime call? No matter how it come off anybody that know me personally can tell you I’m one of the most humble people you could meet, especially being in the position I’m in and why I went through to get here. But last night I was humbled even more. God gave me the opportunity to show my city I’m NOT perfect. While at the same time showing me that I don’t gotta be perfect at all for my city to love and support me? For the lessons taught through these unfortunate circumstances I’m forever grateful ?? This type of shit don’t happen where we from, they usually would’ve tore that bitch down. But instead y’all helped me write another page in the history book last night. Preciate y’all for understanding?? From, Baby. #KeepYaTickets #FREEconcertOTW ? #CHARLOTTE ? Moments captured by: @ricodidit & @igot20onmybeat .
