DaBaby wasn't able to make a show in his hometown of Charlotte, N.C. on Thursday night, so he performed on FaceTime.
He was supposed to do Power 98's Winter Block Party at the Bojangles Coliseum. But when he tried to get to Charlotte from New York, his jet had some maintenance trouble and it couldn't take off.
So the "Suge" rapper performed his on his phone instead, which was put up on the jumbo screen inside the venue. He sent a message to his fans on Instagram as well.

Due to circumstances beyond my control I was unable to make it my show in my OWN. city last night🤦🏾♂️. Paid extra for a jet just to make sure this type of shit wouldn’t happen. Although Baby a firm believer in everything happening for a reason I can’t get over the fact that I let my fans(FAMILY) down by not being able to make it. Thanks to my fast moving team and a few solid supporters at @power98fm we figured out a way to broadcast me live on the jumbo screen at the concert on a FaceTime call. #BDBENT Super Star @stunna4vegas held it down and explained to the audience what was goin on. Soon as they heard my voice and saw my face on the screen over a FaceTime call the whole arena turnt up! I just witnessed myself rock a coliseum through a FaceTime call🔥. No matter how it come off anybody that know me personally can tell you I’m one of the most humble people you could meet, especially being in the position I’m in and why I went through to get here. But last night I was humbled even more. God gave me the opportunity to show my city I’m NOT perfect. While at the same time showing me that I don’t gotta be perfect at all for my city to love and support me🖤. For the lessons taught through these unfortunate circumstances I’m forever grateful 🙏🏾. This type of shit don’t happen where we from, they usually would’ve tore that bitch down. But instead y’all helped me write another page in the history book last night. Preciate y’all for understanding🙏🏾 From, Baby. #KeepYaTickets #FREEconcertOTW 👀 #CHARLOTTE 🖤 Moments captured by: @ricodidit & @igot20onmybeat .
