Fans of rapper DaBaby are extending their condolences to the 28-year-old after his older brother died by suicide on Tuesday.
According to Charlotte-based news station WSOC-TV, Glenn Johnson was found fatally shot in a parking lot in North Carolina. Johnson’s death was originally being investigated as a homicide, but TMZ reports that direct sources said the wound was self-inflicted.
According to TMZ, Johnson posted a video of himself prior to the act where he was holding a gun and was visibly upset. In the video, he claimed he had been wronged a lot in the past, and soon after, people close to the situation said Johnson then took his life.
On Tuesday evening, DaBaby posted the lyrics from his song “Intro” on social media after the news of his brother's passing circulated. Although the rapper himself has not confirmed the cause of his brother's death, the lyrics from the song seem to convey that Johnson may have battled with depression.
“My brother be thinkin’ that we don’t love him and let him struggle like we ain’t family. Like I won’t give up all I got to see you,” the song’s lyrics read.
Fans of the Charlotte native reflected on the tragedy of the lyric given the recent death.
