DaBaby is trying to make amends with a second apology to the LGBTQ+ community after his homophobic rant at Rolling Loud but this time through a new music video.
In the video “Giving What It’s Supposed To Give,” released July 28, the Ohio native held up a sign that read “AIDS.” Later on in the video, a message reading “Don’t Fight Hate With Hate” showed in rainbow lettering made an appearance on screen.
“My apologies for being me the same way you want the freedom to be you,” the “Rockstar” rapper said in the song.
Since being released, the video has already had over 1.5 million views.
On Tuesday July 27, DaBaby tweeted another apology, “Anybody who done ever been effected by AIDS/HIV y’all got the right to be upset, what I said was insensitive even though I have no intentions on offending anybody. So my apologies But the LGBT community… I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.”

But the LGBT community... I ain’t trippin on y’all, do you. y’all business is y’all business.
The “Suge” rapper also apologized to the LGBTQ+ community previously on his Instagram Story that was later reposted by Hollywood Unlocked on Instagram.
Since the homophobic comments were made, DaBaby has lost a huge brand deal.
The UK clothing brand, BoohooMan has dropped DaBaby’s collection from their catalog and posted to their Instagram to alert their customers, “boohooMan condemn the use of homophobic language and confirm we will no longer be working with DaBaby. Diversity and inclusion are part of boohoo Groups DNA and we pride ourselves on representing the diverse customers we serve across the globe. We stand by and support the LGBTQ+ community and do not tolerate hate speech or discrimination in any form.”
In June, BoohooMAN released a 100-piece collection with DaBaby.
