DaBaby’s lawyers dismissed Rolling Stone‘s video which seems to dispute the rapper’s claims that he killed a man in self-defense.
The 30-year-old rapper, real name Jonathan Kirk, killed 19-year-old Jaylin Craig during a fight at a North Carolina Walmart store in 2018.

Leaked video footage obtained by Rolling Stone shows DaBaby threw the first punch, then pulled out a gun and shot Craig dead.
The rapper claimed self-defense, but the surveillance footage shows he initiated the confrontation by sucker punching Craig’s friend.
DaBaby shot and killed 19-year-old Jaylin Craig in 2018, and shooting the rapper claims was in self-defense.
New security footage obtained by Rolling Stone shows that DaBaby appears to be the aggressor, and contradicts key aspects of his version of events. https://t.co/TGZjJ0Da6o pic.twitter.com/M7kbKur3U9

The rapper’s attorneys, Drew Findling and Marissa Goldberg, tell TMZ the video was reviewed by a judge and prosecutors back in 2018.
The lawyers say prosecutors concluded DaBaby acted in self-defense and therefore was not charged with homicide.
DaBaby also responded to the videosaying, “The media got they a * s brainwashed.”
Since 2018, DaBaby has shot at or physically assaulted multiple people – some without provocation.
