DABABY SOLD OUT IRVING PLAZA
Days after the release of Baby on Baby 2, DaBaby announced his next tour. Returning to the
the city for the self-titled Baby on Baby 2 tour, DaBaby made a stop at the notorious Irving Plaza. Funk Flex, one of New York's most notable DJs, posted that he would be DJing a set during the show. Despite the controversy, New York City completely showed up with the energy for all of the performers to hit the stage. As the space began to fill the first special guest, Lil Perco, hit the stage to get the crowd ready. The crowd actively responded back and helped increase the energy. He even went as close to the crowd as he could and finished his set there stating he liked it down there better. Following behind him was the next guest by the name of Loe Shimmy. Loe Shimmy had different sounds to every song he performed which the crowd was able to adapt to. Funk Flex was the real pre-show. In honor of the fallen artists, he had a tribute for DMX, Pop Smoke, Takeoff, Xxxtentacion, & more. Flex played the best songs of the last decade or two and made it feel like a party. He accidentally may have slipped on a name, but nonetheless, we got the point.
Toward the end of his set, there was a dance battle on stage that consisted of multiple attendees from the crowd. The 4 contestants battled it out to Blac Youngsta’s “Booty’ for two minutes. To wrap the dance battle up, Da Baby hit the stage to give the people exactly what they came for. He initiated the show by performing Rockstar which sent the crowd into a frenzy. While the smoke on stage erupted to the beat, Baby threw water into the crowd. He also took moments to stare into the crowd to appreciate those who came out. The dancers on stage did not miss one beat when it came down to it. The catalog of hits felt endless after songs like Suge & Thief In the Night ft the late Pop Smoke. The final special guest hit the stage which was Chicago’s very own Polo G. He performed his hit Pop Out, which the crowd went wild for. Post-Polo G, Da Baby went on to continue killing the stage. He went on to perform Vibez, Nasty, BOP, etc. It began to look sold out as he stated on Instagram hours before. This show had a wonderful turnout, hopefully, all of his shows keep up the same momentum.
