In a series of early morning tweets, the Grammy nominee and recent SNL guest said he wouldn't even use social media himself were it not such a "lucrative tool" in the music business. "I hate to see it," he said. "I encourage people to have the courage to find themselves without the false sense of security they search for on the internet."
Social media, DaBaby said in a subsequent tweet, is not what he considers "the place" to share truth. "But lately I been feeling like it’s my calling to say more," he added, later criticizing those who take moments of candor and vulnerability on social media as a sign of sadness. "GOD just moved me to send out a message this morning," he told fans. "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."
The candid tweets arrived the morning after DaBaby shared a message with his Instagram followers urging the public to refrain from continuing to discuss "that weak ass 48 hours" spent in jail.
"Please be reminded that sucka ass situations like these aren't worthy of your time or attention," he said.
Also on Tuesday, DaBaby was announced as being among the headliners for this year's Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. His breakthrough 2019 hit "Suge," meanwhile, is up for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at this year's Grammy Awards.
