50 Cent Says DaBaby Will Bounce Back: ‘Remember They Canceled Chris Brown 5, 6 Times?’

 

50 Cent knows more than most about bouncing back.

He took bullets, and a barrage of bottles at a U.K.

festival. Now Fiddy is backing DaBaby to rebound

from his current plight.

 

DaBaby is a hot talking point for all the wrong

reasons, after he made inflammatory comments

during his July 25 set at Rolling Loud in Miami.

 

The 25-year-old rapper later issued a formal apology

to “the LGBTQ+ community for the hurtful and

triggering comments” and his “misinformed

comments about HIV/AIDS,” though the statement

was later deleted from his social accounts.

 

The response has been swift, with the hip-hop star dropped from a spate of music festival lineups including Lollapalooza, Governors Ball, Austin CityLimits, Day N Vegas, iHeartRadio Music Festival, Music Midtown Festival and a concert organized by Working Families Party.

And DaBaby’s ill-advised comments have been

criticized by a string of artists including Elton John,

Madonna and Dua Lipa, who worked with the hip-hop

star on “Levitating.”

50 Cent doesn’t believe the damage done to DaBaby’s

career will be long-term.

In an interview with E!’s Nightly Pop, the “In Da Club”

star brushed off the controversy and put it down to

baby steps.

When asked by co-hosts Morgan Stewart McGraw,

Nina Parker and Hunter March whether he’ll bounce

back, Fiddy said, “Yeah, he will. As long as he keeps

his consistency with the music. Remember they

canceled Chris Brown, five, six times?”

At the top, 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson)

vouched for DaBaby as “a really talented, special

artist” who made a blunder.

“He’s just two years into his career, there’s no artist

development, no A&R,” he added, “and he’s definitely

had no media training.”
