Before he was taken into police custody in Miami, the ‘Suge’ rapper allegedly robbed a concert promoter who owed him $30k for a concert he was supposed to perform on Thursday.
Details of the alleged robbery that landed DaBaby behind bars have emerged. According to a scoop from TMZ, the “Suge” rapper robbed his victim of $80 and a credit card, and also poured apple juice on him. The 28-year-old hip-hop star took the man’s iPhone 7 as well.
The victim is reportedly a concert promoter who has a dispute with DaBaby. The rapper was furious at the promoter for allegedly owing him $30k for a concert he was supposed to perform on Thursday. The “Kirk” star reportedly punched a second victim in the face.
The incident happened on the side of the road in broad daylight. In a video, the man was seen lying on asphalt as DaBaby was seen forcefully emptying the man’s pockets. The rapper even tried to strip the man off his pants and dragged him over the hard ground while doing so.
DaBaby was arrested Thursday afternoon, January 2 in Miami, and was subsequently charged with battery. His bail was originally set at $1,500, but he was later ordered by judge to remain in prison due to an outstanding warrant for a different case in Dallas, Texas.
It was his second encounter with authorities within two weeks. He was previously taken into police custody and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, resisting, and obstruction after his concert in Charlotte, N.C. He was issued two citations before he was let go.
He accused the cops of targeting him. “Dirty a** police department try to take me to jail every time I got a show in the city,” he complained. “Someone died last night while the police department wasting resources and officers to harass me in attempt to make a bad example out of me.”
“When in reality, I’m the most positive example the city of Charlotte got. Especially for anybody in the streets of Charlotte and the KIDS,” he continued.
