DaBaby responded to the criticisms in an Instagram story while playing his new song on full blast. The rapper said: "And it's okay. They hate on me and it's okay".
While some fans criticised the tracks sound and DaBaby's lyrics and his flow, other fans brought up the fact that DaBaby is still making music despite not redeeming himself for his homophobic comments.
The 'Rockstar' rapper has been facing "being cancelled" since his previous insensitive comments towards the LGBTQ community at a Rolling Loud festival in Miami, Florida.
The homophobic comments caused the rapper to be taken off the line-up from over 10 music festivals.
After the rapper apologised twice, DaBaby was once again called out after he allegedly failed to donate funding to various organisations he promised to aid.
DaBabyhas also been criticised for his treatment of his baby mama, singer DaniLeigh. The pair had a heated argument on Instagram live regarding the status of their relationship – where he referred to her as a “certified side chick”, despite the pair having a three-month-old daughter.
