Lil Nas X Promises Return To Cowboy Era After Gay Era Is Complete Jamie McCarthy/Getty Images for STARZ 50 Cent Addresses DaBaby's Homophobic Comments: 'They Didn't Notify Him He's Turning Into A Superstar' Published on:Aug 11, 2021, 10:26 AM by 2 Its been nearly three weeks since DaBaby appeared at Rolling Loud Miamiand rattled off some ill-received comments about the LGBTQ+ community. The fallout was swift; he lost endorsement deals, was kicked off major festivals such as Lollapalooza 2021 and Day N Vegas and faced heavy backlash from celebrities such as Madonna, Elton John and The Roots Questlove. Despite two apologies (once hes since deleted from Instagram), DaBabys reputation has undoubtedly taken a hit. But 50 Cent isnt convinced his career is over, as much as cancel culture would presumably like that. In an interview with E!s Nightly Pop, the rapper-turned-television executive dismissed the controversy and was confident DaBaby will bounce back, saying, Yeah, he will. As long as he keeps his consistency with the music. Remember they canceled Chris Brown, five, six times? 50 Cent believes its DaBabys meteoric rise to notoriety and lack of media training that led to this entire situation. He just transitioned from being in that pool that everyones in, as a rap artist, he continued. They didnt notify him that hes turning into a superstar. Theres nobody that tells you, Now youre being held to these standards that are mainstream standards that you cant say things, you cant do these different things. He didnt have a publicist involved.
