After making egregious comments against the LGTBQ community at July’s Rolling Loud Miami Festival, DaBaby announced a new tour in collaboration with Rolling Loud titled the Live Show Killa Tour on Tuesday (Nov. 2).
“The show you thought you’d never see again,” Baby wrote on Instagram. “Rolling Loud presents @dababy. Live Show Killa Tour.” Baby recently performed at Rolling Loud New York as 50 Cent’s surprise guest last week at Citi Field. There, he performed hits such as “Masterpiece,” “Suge” and “Rockstar.”
During his performance at Rolling Loud Miami 2021, DaBaby said from the stage: “If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up.” He added: “Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d–k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up!”
Shortly after his diatribe against the LGBTQ community, Baby was dropped from several festival lineups, including Governors Ball and Lollapalooza. Though he issued several apologies via social media, his attempts proved futile as fans felt he lacked remorse for his remarks.
In August, DaBaby had a meeting with nine leaders of various HIV organizations and “discussed HIV history and education, as well as the groups’ work in Black, LGBTQ, and faith communities.” The leaders signed an open letter acknowledging his participation in the conversation.
Check out the dates for DaBaby’s upcoming tour, which will kick off this month in Chicago before ending next February in Los Angeles.
