Is DaBay now formally pardoned? Just months after his controversial performance that nearly had him “canceled,” the rap singer returned to the Rolling Loud festival stage on Thursday.

DaBaby wasn’t on the official roster for Day 1 of the event in New York at Citi Field in Queens, but was instead invited out as a special guest by 50 Cent. The appearance of DaBaby was apparently allowed by the Rolling Loud organizers.
As we previously reported, DaBaby received a lot of attention in July after making some co
controversial remarks during his act. “If you don’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of the other fatal sexually transmitted diseases, which will kill you in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up,” he said. Put your smartphone lighter up if your p*ssy smells like water, ladies. Put your smartphone lighter up, if you ain’t sucking d*ck in the parking lot.” DaBaby issued multiple public apologies and even met with 11 HIV organizations after being dropped by several events.
Black AIDS Institute, Gilead Sciences COMPASS Initiative, Coordinating Centers, GLAAD, National Minority AIDS Council (NMAC), The Normal Anomaly Initiative, Positive Women’s Network-USA, Prevention Access Campaign (U=U), the Southern AIDS Coalition, and Transinclusive Group were among those who attended the meeting.
