DaBaby Tries To Dismiss Questlove By Claiming He Doesn't Know Who He Is, But It Backfires.

DaBaby's attempt to get rid of Questlove backfired spectacularly.

In a lengthy Instagram post Thursday, Questlove, the legendary drummer for The Roots, publicly condemned DaBaby for his recent homophobic, sexist, and derogatory remarks at the Rolling Loud festival in Miami last weekend.

According to Billboard, DaBaby responded Thursday evening by claiming that he didn't know who Questlove was in posts on his Instagram stories.

“I'm not even trying to be funny when I say.... i have NO IDEA WHO DIS N**** IS DAWG,” one post read.

He later added that he didn't mind losing Questlove as a fan, implying that the hip-hop icon was just a follower.

Twitter users quickly pointed out that a rapper should not brag about not knowing Questlove or The Roots, whose influence on hip-hop dates back over three decades. DaBaby released his debut studio album, “Baby on Baby,” in 2019.

Being a rapper and declaring with your entire chest that you don't know who Questlove is....isn't the flex you think it is, my boy. pic.twitter.com/1OHlVazNad — April (@ReignOfApril) July 30, 2021

Proudly declaring that you don't know who QuestLove is???? Especially while participating in hiphop, a culture that QuestLove (with The Roots) *helped* define????

When you consider how one-dimensional and lazy DaBaby's music is, it makes sense that he doesn't know who Questlove is. https://t.co/OGRtp6XSrF — kevikev (@KevCoke6) July 30, 2021

If DaBaby doesn't recognize Questlove, it's a reflection of his lack of talent and knowledge in hip-hop and music in general. https://t.co/AAfTe27llg — Frederick Joseph (@FredTJoseph) July 30, 2021

DaBaby received widespread criticism after making derogatory remarks about women, gay men, and HIV-positive people onstage.

According to video captured by TMZ, the rapper spread misinformation about HIV and AIDS, telling the audience to hold up their phones “if you didn’t show up today with HIV/AIDS, or other STDs that’ll make you die in two to three weeks.”

DaBaby initially defended his remarks, calling them a "call to action" in an Instagram Live on Monday, before apologizing on Twitter on Tuesday: "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 had no intentions of offending anybody. So my apologies. But the LGBT community... I ain't trippin' on y'all, do I?"

Other celebrities, including Madonna, Elton John, and Dua Lipa, have joined Questlove in condemning DaBaby's remarks this week.
