Ebro Darden denied DJ Akademiks’ claims that DaBaby’s album flopped because he blackballed him.
“Da Baby’s last project in 2020, Blame it on Baby, sold 124K first week. His new project after being blackballed by Ebro, Apple Music is scheduled to do less than 20K,” Ak tweeted. “Now yall understand my Ebro convo… DSPs control who is hot and who is not. Fall out of favor with them… UR DONE.”
Ebro saw the tweet and quickly responded, “Funny sh-t when artists get hot it is always how they built this themselves and the fans. When sh-t slows down it is radio, DJs, platforms, and the label. #BlameEbro is back for a whole new generation.”
DaBaby celebrated the projected sales while claiming he had been blackballed.
Ebro added, “Apple Music is not the only platform. Based on this dummy’s logic, Da Baby should be doing well on the platform HE works for. Is it?”
Y’all think DaBaby was blackballed?
