DaBaby shot someone who got onto his property in Troutman, North Carolina earlier this year and recently talked about it on the Full Send Podcast.
“They ain't break into my house, they jumped a fence, onto the estate," he explained. "They had a hoodie on and was, like, kneeled down behind a wall and some sh*t. I was actually in the studio putting together the tracklist for the album. I got a call from somebody that was outside working, like my contractor. I got a call from him and he was like, ‘Somebody’s on the football field.’ It was just the way he was talking, like, ‘Come outside.'”
“[It seemed like] ill intent," DaBaby went on. "All the way until they get there and get this dude up out of there, I walk my property and see what’s up, see where he came in at. We get everything figured out. Yet to me, I still can’t trust what’s going on with that situation. You still don’t know why exactly they were there. But you know, the guy made it out good, he’s ok.”
The rapper wasn't charged for the shooting, which means the Iredell County District Attorney’s Office believes it was justified. Reportedly, the intruder was unarmed.
