DaBaby apparently playing a July 4th concert in Georgia despite the state’s surge in COVID-19 cases
For some reason, there are people who think it's okay to put on concerts this weekend, as if coronavirus is going to take July 4th off or something. Vanilla Ice is doing one in Austin, and DaBaby -- who presumably has the ability to attract a much larger crowd than Vanilla Ice -- is reportedly doing one in Georgia, which reported a surge in COVID-19 cases earlier this week.
As XXL points out, there's an Eventbrite page for a sold-out '4th of July Bash with an appearance by DaBaby' happening at Cosmopolitan Premier Lounge in Decatur, GA. It's part of a two-day celebration that also apparently includes Moneybagg Yo and Blac Youngsta on Sunday (7/5) at the same venue. We reached out to representatives for DaBaby and Moneybagg Yo for more inforrmation.
Update: the event coordinator tells TMZ more:
MyDjDre, the coordinator of the event, tells TMZ ... the venue is only allowing 40 percent of the max capacity of 4,000 into the club.
We're told they'll be enforcing a No mask, No entry rule for attendees, and faces must be covered the whole time. There will also be temperature checks and health screening questions at the door.
As for DaBaby ... he's only going to be allowed 3 people on stage with him -- not a full entourage -- and they'll all enter the stage from a parking lot entrance to avoid contact with the crowd.
We're told, most of the tables and standing area at the CPL are sectioned off, as well ... so people can socially distance without little problem.
DaBaby's "Rockstar" (ft. Roddy Ricch) is currently the No. 1 song in the country. A Black Lives Matter remix of the song recently came out, and DaBaby also made a video for the song that protests police brutality that he debuted at the BET Awards.
Moneybagg Yo released his new single "Said Sum" earlier this week.
