What is rapper DaBaby's real name?

DaBaby's real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk.

He was born on December 22, 1991 in Cleveland, Ohio.

He was formally professionally known as Baby Jesus.

DaBaby has three children of his own, one being a "stepson" he shares with ex-girlfriend, MeMe.

All of the children have been kept out of the spotlight with not even their names confirmed online.

What is DaBaby known for?

The 29-year-old rose to prominence in 2019 with his song Rockstar featuring Roddy Ricch.

The song spent seven weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

He was nominated for six Grammy awards in 2021 and has also won a BET Hip Hop Award, a Billboard Music Award, and three ASCAP Rhythmn & Soul Music Awards, among others.

DaBaby recently became the most-streamed rapper per month on Spotify, overtaking the likes of Drake and Kanye West.

He also has had numerous run-ins with the law since rising to fame two years ago.

In February, the 29-year-old was sued for allegedly sucker-punching a rental property owner during a music video and knocking out their tooth.

A month earlier, he was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon – a 9mm handgun – while out on a shopping spree in Beverly Hills, California.

He was twice arrested for assault in the span of two weeks between December 2019 and January 2020.

In early 2019, DaBaby was arrested after an incident at a Walmart where a man was shot and killed in November 2018.

He had not pulled the trigger, and was found guilty of a weapons charge.

He was sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation and a suspended 30-day jail sentence.

Why was DaBaby questioned by the police?

DaBaby was questioned by police following a shooting at Miami Beach's Ocean Drive that left two people hospitalized on May 31, 2021.

The Miami Beach Police Department said in a news release on Tuesday that "several possible subjects" had been detained in relation to the shooting, including the 29-year-old star.

The rapper had shared on Instagram of him performing nearby at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

An anonymous source told Page Six that the incident was sparked after DaBaby and his entourage "had an issue" with a group of people in a car next to them.

"DaBaby and his crew were traveling in around six SUVs, and either a car pulled up on them and started something or their doors hit each other and they got in a fight," the source said.

"Rumor has it that DaBaby and 10 to 12 members of his entourage have been detained by police."

No arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.
