DaBaby denies the driver assault accusations made against him

Where It All Started

Earlier in the week, reports revealed assault accusations with claims that DaBaby hit a driver in the head after telling him he couldn’t light up in the vehicle. Reports also said Baby’s crew made threats to the driver.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the driver got a call to pick up DaBaby in Vegas back in November, and the rapper and some friends hopped into his Mercedes Sprinter van. We’re told after a few stops, DB and his friends sparked a joint and the driver told them that’s a no-no. Cops say the rapper and his friends started cursing out the driver and threatened him. When they got to the Hard Rock Hotel, the driver told his passengers it was time to pay up. The driver claims DB punched him in the back of the head and said, “You ain’t the boss.” Our law enforcement sources say one of the suspects said, “You’re lucky you’re not in my city because I would have killed you cracker motherf***er.” We’re told DB and co. got their bags, but not before someone allegedly said they “would have left him (the driver) dead on the road.” We’re told there’s now an active arrest warrant to bring in DaBaby for misdemeanor battery.

Wait, There’s More

Regardless of what went down, Baby knows he has the rap game in a chokehold right about now. The hip-hop heavyweight recently talked about the success he’s enjoyed and why not many artists are on his level in 2020. In a new interview, Baby reflected on his success and how he’s put himself as a top-tier rap entertainer. DB also explained why his music is doing better than his competition.

“I definitely would say I did find a balance. A lot of people put out an album maybe once every two years. I don’t know another artist that has put out the volume of music I’ve been putting out and have been successful at it. I haven’t been putting out music that’s flopping. I haven’t put out anything that ain’t been platinum. You see what I’m saying? I’m going to the Grammys and sh*t like that. It’s really going on. I gotta take part in those types of strategies to make my music in high demand.” -DaBaby’s Instagram

Before You Go

In April 2020, the hip-hop champion reacted to some big stats. DaBaby’s success elevated recently as he celebrated his newly released Blame It On Baby album debuting atop the music charts.

“This what my trolls do to my music when they put in hard work doin all that hatin and my sh*t STILL top the charts😂😂😂 Relax bro, I love y’all too…. no cap. 🖤” -DaBaby’s Instagram
