Two unidentified victims were involved in the alleged robbery. One of the alleged victims was a promoter who reportedly stiffed the DaBaby out of payment for a performance. Early on January 3, the rapper met up with the promoter to collect the $30,000 fee they previously agreed on. However, when the promoter allegedly gave him only $20,000, a “verbal altercation ensued” and quickly escalated.

The “Bop” rapper allegedly punched one of the victims in the face. Seconds later, he and “several other males” started “attacking” the music promoter. According to the report, a member of DaBaby’s entourage stole a credit card, an iPhone, and $80 from one of the alleged victims. The report also claimed that “during the altercation one of the offenders doused him with apple juice.”

DaBaby was arrested after two of the victims positively identified him. However, he has "denied his involvement in the incident."

According to The Miami Herald, though the North Carolina native wasn't charged for the alleged robbery itself, he received the battery charge after law enforcement discovered the outstanding warrant from Texas.

At the time, he told reporters at the scene that he believed he was unfairly targeted and that his car was unlawfully searched. “They follow me, they pull us over for no reason, they search our cars,” DaBaby said.
