Lil Baby’s team denies that he was booked for Pride concert in Washington, D.C.; Promoters also believe they were scammed
Lil Baby’s team denies that he was booked for Pride concert
Over the past week, Lil Baby has been trending on social media, due to him supposedly being booked to perform at an LGBTQ “Pride in the District” event, in Washington, D.C. This was set to take place on May 28.
However, Baby’ team denies that he was booked for this concert. They also shut down rumors to The Neighborhood Talk, that Baby is homophonic, and that this was simply a situation of not actually being booked for the show.
“He never even knew of this event and none of his team or agents were ever in contact with Pride In the District [the event in question],” his representative stated. “A scammer must have posed as a rep of his. Lil Baby never pulled out of anything with this as he was never booked or contacted in the first place.”
Meanwhile, the concert’s organizers also admitted that they were scamming, in trying to book Baby for this event. They also asked everyone to stop calling the rapper homophobic.
“We have finally reached someone from [Lil Baby’s] camp and his agency WME were not aware of the PITD booking and have come to the conclusion that we were in fact scammed by someone posing to be a booking agent. We would appreciate it if the individuals calling Lil Baby homophobic would stop immediately because that is simply a personal opinion and simply put, tasteless.”
Amid this situation, Baby also announced this week, that he’s venturing on his upcoming “It’s Only Us” Tour. This kicks off next month, and will also have guest performers such as GloRilla, Gloss Up, The Kid Laroi, and more.
