After Breaking His Silence Following His Arrest, Rapper DaBaby Goes Off About Social Media

Rapper DaBaby is active on social media following his robbery arrest in Miami. Find out what has him up in arms inside…

Rapper DaBaby is airing out all his frustrations on social media following his recent arrest in Miami.

If you haven’t heard, the North Carolina native (real name Jonathan Kirk) was reportedly arrested in connection with the robbery of a club promoter in Miami. The “Suge” rapper was in South Florida for a New Year’s Eve performance at a Miami Beach nightclub. Apparently, the agreement was made that DaBaby would be paid $30,000 for the performance. He linked up with the promoter at Novotel Miami Brickell to collect his coins, but after counting the money, the rapper claimed he was shorted out of $10,000.

When DaBaby began demanding the money, an argument broke out, which resulted in the rapper allegedly punching a man who was with the promoter. The rapper’s crew allegedly jumped in, stealing the man’s iPhone 7, $80 in cash, a credit card, and then the man was allegedly doused with apple juice.

Watch the alleged attack and DaBaby being hauled off in cuffs below:

The promoter told police he fled the hotel in fear for his safety. Later, DaBaby returned to the hotel and the two victims identified the rapper as the suspect. That’s when DaBaby was arrested and a bond was set at $1,500.

Not so fast!

After his arrest, authorities discovered DaBaby had an arrest warrant in Texas. The reason? Well, the 28-year-old rapper got into a physical altercation at The Dallas/Fort Worth airport last month. He and one of his homies beat down an employee that was working at a food stand. And the fight was caught on camera:

At one point, the Grammy nominated rapper was being held without bail, but then Dallas cops withdrew the warrant. It’s unclear why they had the change of heart. It was good news for DaBaby because he was released from the Miami-Dade county jail late Saturday night (Jan. 4th) after posting the $1,500 bond and spending 48-hours behind bars. 

Soon after, the "BOP" rapper hopped on social media, claiming his innocence and assured his fans that he would beat any lawsuit that could potentially be brought up against him.


He posted a PSA on his Instagram that read, “To Whom It May Concern. Please stop talking to me about that weak a** 48 hours I spent in jail and that failed attempt to break my spirits and interrupt the path I’m taking to my God given success."

He continued, “Don’t allow yourself to be mislead by janky promoters and lazy a** grown men itching for the opportunity to file a lawsuit that they won’t win"

In the caption, he wrote, “Real Nigga wit PLENTY sense. For those who passed judgement I already forgave you in advance. P.S. - How many Ladies think I’m sexier after reading this post and finding out Im smart too? Had to clear the air real quick. #BackToWork #YouBitchAssNigga”

Today, DaBaby hopped on Twitter to post up a series of tweets about how "lost souls" influence "lost souls" on social media. He said if social media wasn't such a "lucrative tool" in the music industry he wouldn't even be on it.

"I always preferred to say less because social media ain't a place for the truth. But lately I been feeling like it's my calling to say more," he tweeted.  However, he's torn about if that's the route he now wants to take:


"The internet so lost they think if a nigga say something with substance he sad," he continued tweeting. "B*tch I’m GOOD. GOD just moved me to send out a message this morning. Don’t send pity where it isn’t needed. Just soak up the game for what it’s worth. Shit it may not be worth nothing at all," he concluded.

We hear him, but, his past actions definitely have a lot to do with the criticism folks are giving.  Even though he seems to be a good dude at the core.

The rapper's rap sheet isn't the greatest. Right before Christmas, he was reportedly arrested in Charlotte North Carolina after he performed at the Bojangles' Coliseum. Not long before that arrest, he hosted a XBOX giveaway for kids at the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Los Angeles. Watch him transform into "Da Santa" HERE.

Cops swarmed his vehicle and allegedly found marijuana, so he was cited for marijuana possession. He made claims that he was targeted and that the police in his hometown are always harassing him. An Internal Affairs investigation has been launched by CMPD to determine if officers followed proper protocol.

Also, he was arrested in 2019 for an alleged attack that apparently happened in November 2018. It's reported DaBaby got into a fight with a man in a Walmart. The man was shot and killed. DaBaby told police he felt threatened and was protecting himself and his kids. However, he said he did NOT pull the trigger. In June 2019, he was convicted of carrying a concealed gun, which is a misdemeanor. He ended up being sentenced to 12 months of unsupervised probation and 30 days in jail, but the jail sentence was suspended.

DaBaby is expected back in court in Miami this week.
