Recently DaBaby lost his brother Glenn Johnson due to suicide which prompted him to issue a message to his fans. He urged his fans to make sure they check on their family members and to be there for them as much as possible. When you’re a rapper and constantly on the road and trying to maintain an exhausting travel schedule it can be hard to even check on yourself. DaBaby has been through a lot of losses alongside his wins in the music industry and seems to be able to maintain composure even when it gets tough. Today he released the visual for his track “Blind.”
The theme of the video directly supports his previous message of checking on your family. The video shows him calling his grandpa to check in with him on his birthday before letting him know he had something special planned for him. He flies grandpa to his location and lets him indulge in the finer things of life.
Young Thug makes an appearance in the video too, but it’s safe to say the stand in Grandpa steals the show. Grandpa gets cozy with the onset models and essentially reacts like a teenager who’s invited to an all you can drink bar. You can watch the full video below!
Lately, the “Bop” rapper has been doing his do-diligence, following his previous assault cases. Earlier this month, DaBaby teamed up with a voter campaign to provide free rides to folks heading to the polls during Election Day. He’s also been nominated for 4 different awards at this year’s American Music Award’s show including New Artists Of The Year, Collaboration Of The Year, Favorite Male Artist- Rap/Hip-Hop, and Favorite Song – Rap/Hip-Hop.
Bigs up to DaBaby!
