Rapper DaBaby had to take a moment to switch from lyricist to tutor after he schooled two young boys who tried to scam him while selling candy.
DaBaby posted a video of two young boys approaching him selling candy and his interaction with the young entrepreneurs.
According to HipHopDX, DaBaby asked one of the boys, “How much for the whole box?” The young boy then responds, “$200,” although he is selling the candy for $2 each.
Then DaBaby asks the other boy selling candy how much he wanted for his box of Gushers and the boy gives the same answer.
“These ni**as,” DaBaby says. “You made $400 off that and you selling them for $2? Let’s count ’em. What’s 34 times two? It ain’t $200. It ain’t even $100 [laughs]. That’s $68.”
He then proceeds to pay $2 for the package of candy.
Based on this interaction, social media went into a frenzy for several reasons.
People felt that since he obviously has the money, he should have contributed more to the boys. But, some also felt that the boys were trying to game DaBaby by trying to get $200 for a box that would generate $68 in sales.
How do you feel about the situation?
