On Wednesday (Aug. 12), DaBaby showed his support for ‘Ye, who is currently a presidential hopeful in the 2020 election. The Blame it on Baby rhymer pledged his allegiance to Kanye West and promised his vote to Kanye, despite him not being on Baby’s local ballot.
“Ima let y’all finish….But you got me fucked up you think I ain’t voting for Ye. 🇺🇸,” DaBaby wrote in a Tweet.
Baby’s comments come after the 43-year-old “Ultralight Beam” rapper sent a special shoutout to the XXL Freshman on Twitter the night before. Last night, Kanye West sent out 21 tweets in under an hour about merchandise for his run for President, African cubism, potential prototypes for his fashion line, and the big boss Baby, himself.
The Chicago native shared DaBaby’s signature “let’s go” with his 30.7 million followers, before following up his statement to confirm he was using his ad-lib. “DaBaby ad-lib by the way.”
The 28-year-old Cleveland-born, Charlotte-raised rapper is not the first to publicly declare their support of Kanye West, late last week. Nick Cannon said he might be voting for ‘Ye, “we need another Black man in office,” he said during an interview with TMZ.
Despite his luck possibly securing votes from multiple fellow lyricists—DaBaby, Nick Cannon and YG—, it was recently reported that Kanye West is only polling at 2 percent amongst Black voters. According to Politico-Morning Consult, a national poll which was released yesterday (Aug. 11), the presumed Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump are leading the charge against Yeezy. The most recent report follows allegations that President Trump and Kanye have been conspiring together to take votes away from Biden.
