People apparently weren't feeling DaBaby's performance at Rolling Loud in Los Angeles over the weekend. Video from the performance went viral on Monday morning, showing festival goers throwing water bottles among other trash items at the "Rockstar" rapper before and during his set on Sunday.

According to XXL, DaBaby's set appeared to be a last minute switch-up. He was originally scheduled to perform at the Power 106 stage while Future took the Ciroc stage as one of the headliners of the festival. However, the festival organizers made the change without updating audience members. DaBaby, dressed in the latest North Face and Gucci collaboration, walked out to a greeting of garbage being hurled at him from the crowd. Shortly after, the items began to escalate and fans were throwing liquids on stage at the artist.
Despite dodging items thrown on stage, DaBaby handled the show with composure and continued with his set. By the time he broke into his song "Suge," the crowd had warmed up to him. Complex reports he even jumped into the audience at one point and was given a warm response.
The performance marks DaBaby's latest showing at Rolling Loud this year. He previously made headlines for his Miami performance, where he made several homophobic comments.
“If you didn’t show up today with HIV, AIDS, or any of them deadly sexually transmitted diseases, that’ll make you die in two to three weeks, then put your cellphone lighter up,” he said at the time. “Ladies, if your p***y smell like water, put your cellphone lighter up. Fellas, if you ain’t sucking d**k in the parking lot, put your cellphone lighter up.”
The comments sparked wide backlash among multiple LGBTQ+ organizations and prompted multiple performers in the industry to speak against him publicly. A number of his shows on his tour were canceled as well. As Blavity previously reported, DaBaby apologized for the incident and has since started to tour again.
During his show this weekend, he addressed the controversy.
“I know y’all tired of that boring ass s**t, it’s time for the live show killer,” he said in one of the clips from his performance. “On the count of three, say, ‘Cancel who?’”
