DaBaby Pays Homage to Older Brother

Even before Johnson’s passing, DaBaby showed his brother love throughout the lyrics of his music. On the intro for his second studio album, Kirk, DaBaby let his brother know he was valued by his family and loved ones. “My brother be thinkin’ that we don’t love him and let him struggle like we ain’t family,” he rapped. “Like I won’t give up all I got to see you happy.”

Upon hearing of his brother’s passing DaBaby changed his social media bios to “LONG LIVE MY BROTHER” along with a black heart emoji and a white dove emoji.

Charlotte Rapper Advocates for Suicide Awareness

In the aftermath of Johnson’s suicide, DaBaby has taken to his IG Live to urge his 15 million followers to check in on their loved ones in terms of their mental and emotional health. After a year filled with highs such as a number one album, one of the biggest songs of the year, and a new song with Kanye West, this is a sobering moment for the normally lively and charismatic superstar. This moment marks a pivotal moment in DaBaby’s growth as an artist, and more importantly as a young man.

Prayers and condolences go out to the Johnson and Kirk family during this very challenging time.
