DaBaby Sinks To A New Low With A Megan Thee Stallion Lookalike In His ‘Boogeyman’ Video

Remember when DaBaby was an exciting new artist that you just wanted to root for? Not only are those days long gone, but it also doesn’t look like they’re coming back. The North Carolina rapper seems determined to burn through whatever slivers of goodwill he has left with his new album Baby On Baby 2, starting with lead single “Boogeyman.” DaBaby already caught hell on Twitter for lyrics that reference having sex with Megan Thee Stallion and her alleged shooting by Tory Lanez, but he’s doubling down in the Nightmare On Elm Street-themed music video, which features an MTS lookalike reacting to the line.

Give him credit; the video has the same level of planning and budget he’s always put into his visuals. It has a horror movie/Scooby-Doo-inspired intro sequence in which a group of intrepid teens ventures into a creepy basement. DaBaby himself pops out as a Freddy Kruger-esque gremlin and chases the kids into the haunted house above.

But let’s be honest; it’s pretty bad form to mock someone you once counted a friend and collaborator after she was (allegedly) shot by another rapper. We already know he doesn’t think much of those allegations, but maybe it’s time for DaBaby to grow up.

DaBaby Has Been Accused Of Plagiarizing His Megan Thee Stallion-Aimed Song, ‘Boogeyman’

Not everyone is a fan of DaBaby‘s new song, “Boogeyman.” Taken from his new surprise album, Baby On Baby 2, not only does “Boogeyman” feature DaBaby claiming he slept with Megan Thee Stallion the night before she was allegedly shot by Tory Lanez, but it appears to have been lifted from a Toronto artist.

Singer and songwriter Layla Hendryx spoke with Rolling Stone today, claiming that DaBaby has plagiarized parts of her own song titled “Boogeyman.”

A friend of Hendryx, whose Twitter account has since been set to protected, shared clips comparing both songs.

“The whole [cadence], the whole flow for the hook is stolen from me,” Hendryx said. “One, it was done so sheisty, and two, the fact that he used the song to basically diss another black woman while you’re stealing from another black woman is just wild to me.”

Hendryx said a friend of hers shared her song, “Boogeyman,” to an A&R earlier this year, and believes that’s how the song made its way to DaBaby. She also shared that she’s had similar experiences in the industry, however, she is even more upset about the fact that the song takes aim at another artist.

“It’s just not something that I want to be a part of,” Hendryx said. “Even if they did just put me out with a credit, that’s not something I want to write for. I do not want to write for DaBaby. I would’ve said no to begin with. Just let me have the choice with my own art.”

Hendryx revealed that she is currently pursuing legal action against DaBaby.

DaBaby Claims He Had Sex With Megan Thee Stallion The Day Before Tory Lanez Allegedly Shot Her On His New Album

You’d be forgiven for not knowing DaBaby had an album coming out this week. Ever since his debacle at Rolling Loud Miami in 2021, he’s dropped in public esteem, losing endorsement deals and watching his ticket sales plummet. The fact that it’s mostly his own fault seems lost on him because even if he’s down horrible, he has to have known that his latest stunt to get attention would backfire in his face.

On the new album, Baby On Baby 2, DaBaby claims to have had sex with Megan Thee Stallion the day before she was allegedly shot by Tory Lanez after a Hollywood party. In the song “Boogieman,” he rhymes: “You play with me, that shit was childish / The day before she said that Tory Lanez shot her, I was fucking on Megan Thee Stallion / Waited say that shit on my next album / Hit it the day before too, but I kept it player, I ain’t say nothing bout it / Had her pretty-boy boyfriend tweeting me, ready to die ’bout the bitch like a coward.”

Nah, fam. That is an atrocious look. As a wise person once said: “Dig deep and think about the messiest bitch you know… it’s a man ain’t it?”

Now, DaBaby is being utterly ransacked on Twitter by fans rightly pointing out that the antics not only make him look bad but that they still won’t actually generate the streams he needs to bounce back after refusing to own up to his own mistakes. Just a disaster for him no matter how you slice it (of course, there are random guys tweeting messages supporting him, but let’s be serious here). Below is just a sampling of the smoke DaBaby’s latest shenanigans have incurred.

DaBaby Appears To Be Unfazed After New Orleans Show Cancellation

DaBaby Targets Those Who Attempted to "Assassinate" His Career On Freestyle Over WizKid's "Essence"

DaBaby recently canceled his show in New Orleans, apparently due to low ticket sales. Reports stated that less than 500 tickets were sold for the 14,000 seat venue. Despite this, DaBaby seems unfazed by the show cancellation.

The Blame It On Baby artist recently posted a gif of himself on Twitter where he is looking around before smirking and taking a sip of a drink.

New Orleans rapper 7th Ward Shorty told Nola.com that he believes the low ticket sales were due to the EDM group Showtek being booked to entice college kids who were attending this weekends LSU vs. Florida State game.

NOLA.com had reported that Ticketmaster’s seating chart showed that less than 500 tickets had been sold for the concert. While Ticketmaster says that the show is canceled, DaBaby’s promoters are saying that the show has been postponed. They have even gone to say that the show wasn’t even canceled due to low ticket sales.

Promoter Greg Pulver said that the shows cancellation was due to “a number of business reasons,” and that  DaBaby’s team “decided to postpone and that was in our best interest.”

Andrew Lieber, the CEO of the booking agency that represents DaBaby, further defended the artist, claiming that the promoter was in breach of contract . “DaBaby’s New Orleans show was pulled by the artist’s team due to the promoter being in breach of contract. DaBaby will be back in New Orleans very soon to make it up to his fans.”
