DaBaby’s older brother has died from suicide.
MTO News has confirmed that Glen Johnson died in North Carolina on Tuesday from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
But before killing himself, Glen went on Instagram, and said he was “tired of living.” He seemed also to be directing to some his anger and frustration with life towards his famous brother DaBaby where he said “you think cause you famous? Do what you do. I’m at peace, so you be at peace.”
A video, purporting to show him, began circulating.
DaBaby in response wrote “Long Live My Brother,” on his Instagram bio as well as posting a video of himself seated in a car smoking weed before the camera pans to the sky.
DaBaby also took to Instagram to share lyrics from the intro track on his album “KIRK,” which mentions Johnson.
“My brother be thinkin’ that we don’t love him and let him struggle like we ain’t family/Like I won’t give up all I got to see you happy, n*gga,” DaBaby raps in the song. He then captioned the story: “I would’ve gave up all I had to see you happy n*gga.”
Last week, DaBaby took to social media to reflect on his father passing away.
“After losing my pops unexpectedly a couple weeks after popping as a mainstream artist I numbed out ALL feelings,” he tweeted. “Wins felt the same way losses did, like nothing.
