DaBaby Gets in Fight with His Artist Wisdom

Another day, another drama for DaBaby.

The “Rockstar” rapper was involved in a physical altercation with his artist Wisdom while backstage at Spring Jam 2022 at Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday night (April 22).

In video, uploaded to social media, DaBaby appears to take the first swing before Wisdom punches back. The situation was quickly defused when security and police officers stepped in to break up the fight. It appeared as though there were no injuries.

Artist Prince Mazani was backstage at the concert and shared footage of the brawl on Instagram. “I’m backstage at the concert and Da baby swong on somebody,” he captioned the clip.

DaBaby was among the headliners for the Spring Jam event, which also featured Kodak Black, Boosie Badazz, Webbie, and Blacc Zacc.

This is the latest incident involving the embattled rapper. Earlier this month, he allegedly shot an intruder who trespassed at his home in Troutman, North Carolina. The victim suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

“I chose not to take a n*gga life the other day & it felt great,” DaBaby said following the shooting. “Ni**as get shot everyday. You be alright, ni**a.”

Wisdom, who is signed to DaBaby’s Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment label, has his own troubled past. In June 2021, the Charlotte rapper was arrested on charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault with a firearm in connection with a shooting outside a restaurant in Miami that wounded two people.
