DaBaby's Run-Ins With The Law

Ever since his commercial success in 2019, DaBaby’s star has been shining brighter and brighter. After the release of Suge which put him on the map, the artist has released bop after bop.

Fans love him not only for the catchy beats in his tracks but also for his catchy raps. Every song he features in or works on turns to magic. Despite having so much favour with fans, he has not had so much favour with the law.

Shoot and Kill – Huntersville, North Carolina

DaBaby whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk has had a couple of legal troubles. His most severe legal run-in dates back to 2018. He shot and killed a 19-year-old man in Huntersville, North Carolina while shopping with his baby mama and two children.

The artist who claimed the incident was an act of self-defence was only found guilty of a misdemeanour of carrying a concealed weapon. This was after the more serious charges were dropped in March 2019. He was sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation.

Battery in Connection with Robbery – Miami

DaBaby’s other run-in with the law was when he was arrested and charged with battery in connection to a robbery investigation in January 2020. The robbery was after a promoter paid DaBaby $20,000 instead of $30,000. The State reported that DaBaby and his associates took $80 cash, an iPhone 7 and credit card from the promoter. The rapper spent 48 hours in Miami-Dade County jail before being released.

Slapping a Female Fan – Tampa, Florida

During his ‘Up Close N Personal’ tour, he slapped a female fan on his way to the stage in Tampa, Florida. He ended up not performing after fans booed him. He ended up apologizing to the fan after stating that he slapped her for placing the phone too close to his face with a flash on.

Hopefully, the raper stays in the laws good graces this year.

King von lost his life in a shooting incident last year in November. Ever since then, many people have come out to talk about how they knew the rapper, including his former girlfriend Asian doll.

According to Asian Doll, King Von was her boyfriend, but King von’s sister seems to have different sentiments.

Asian Doll and Von’s best friend Lil Durk even gave the late rapper’s kids gifts on Christmas. 

Kayla B took to Twitter, claiming that her brother was dating nobody before he died. She wrote, “Von wasn’t in a relationship wit nobody before he died, Wasn’t getting back wit nobody he was living his best life fuckin wit who Eva he wanted 2.”

Kayla’s sentiments contradict Doll’s story. Asian Doll claims that King Von told her last words before he died. 

After the 26-year-old rapper died, Asian Doll shared a sad message on Twitter saying, “I’ll never be the same. I just hope you visit me in all my dreams I just wanna sleep so I can picture us again; I just wanna close my eyes & never open then again…. Von I’m gone.”

In a separate message she wrote, “My heart is gone I’m just a empty soul in a human body I rather die than to feel this pain. I CANT TAKE IT IM NOT STRONG ENOUGH VON.”

We can’t deny that Von’s relationship with Asian Doll was the rapper’s last public relationship, but whether the two were still dating or not before his death remains a mystery. 

We can only guess, so tell us what you think. Was the relationship over before Von died or not? Talk to us through our comments section.

Ayo, I had to get somethin’ off my chest; Benny The Butcher starts in his song 3:30 in Houston. 

Benny has been vocal about his feelings towards people who share their moves and other rappers’ moves online, including Wendy Williams.

F**k all the bloggers, the n-gas who shot me

F**k all the apps, and f**k Wendy Williams.

Just yesterday, the rapper shared a short clip spelling out the difference between real n**ga and ordinary people.

With a joint between his lips, the rapper said,

You n-gas who be in the comments, running ya mouth thinkin’ y’all know everything? Swearing y’all street n-ggas? That’s rule No. 1, a street n-gga never speak on shit he know nothin’ about. And y’all n-ggas think an-gga ‘sposed to post every aspect of his life? C’mon man, y’all n-gas can’t be in the streets for real. Stop that.”

According to him, people who go announcing their plans on social media posting everything about their lives, and talking about other people are not supposed to be doing that and still claim to be ‘street nig**s.’
