DaBaby generated a lot of attention when he dropped a video of himself dealing with some kids who were trying to hustle by selling candy. They wanted to overcharge the famous rapper, but he shut them down. Now he is speaking about this controversial video.

Plenty of fans spoke out to drag DaBaby after this video went viral. He was not looked at too favorably by some, but others understood why he wanted to teach those kids a lesson in honesty.

While sitting down with Complex News, DaBaby addressed this controversial video and broke everything down for them. He likes to help out kids who are hustling, but sometimes a lesson is more valuable than the cash he can provide.

When I see someone hustling like that, I buy the whole thing especially when it’s kids. So, I give them the opportunity to make it make sense why you want $200 for this [candy]. You tell me, man I usually charge this for the whole box, but I’m just gonna charge you $2 all the way down and I would have looked at them and given them $1,000, but I respect their hustle. I didn’t cuss ’em out, I gave them knowledge, bought one piece of candy from each of them and closed the door.”


DaBaby did not give those kids $1,000 for their troubles. He bought one $2 bag of candy from each of them and closed the bus door on them, leaving those kids to wish they hadn’t tried to pull one over on him.
