The artist was arrested in Miami last January in connection with a robbery investigation and charged with a batter. An arrest report received by PEOPLE at the time said that DaBaby entered into a “verbal argument” with a music promoter who agreed to give him $ 30,000 for a performance but only gave him $ 20,000, and allegedly punched someone during the argument.

DaBaby refused to interfere, as PEOPLE previously reported.
Complex reports that DaBaby later covered the incident on Instagram.
“Please stop talking to me about the 48 hours I spent in jail and that weak ass that failed to break my spirits and interrupt the road,” he said. “Don’t let yourself be used by clumsy supporters and lazy-ass grown men who are dying for an opportunity to open a cause they cannot win.
DaBaby has been nominated for six Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year 2020.
