Billboard chart topping artist DaBaby came out in support of former President Donald Trump, when he called him “gangsta” during a podcast interview last week.
The Rockstar rapper was asked how he felt about the 45th president when he appeared on Friday’s episode of the Full Send Podcast. “Do I f–k with Trump? Now? H-ll yeah,” he told hosts Kyle Forgeard and Bob Menery.
When they questioned why he responded that way, Dababy replied, “Trump is a gangsta. He let Kodak out.”

Rapper Kodak Black, who was serving a four year stint on federal gun charges for making a false statement on a firearm application, was pardoned by Trump during his final day in office, along with fellow rapper Lil’ Wayne and 141 others.
Black said that voting Trump out hurt the nation in a recent interview. “Getting rid of Trump is the worst thing America could’ve did, you hear me?” He insisted, adding that he was “forever indebted” to him for the pardon.
The Full Send hosts mentioned that Trump had appeared on their show, but YouTube deleted the episode that featured his take on WW3, Joe Rogan, and talking with Putin.
In March, the podcast’s official Twitter page announced that Google’s streaming platform had removed the content because moderators believed the episode violated their misinformation policy.
YouTube cited that the content “advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches changed the outcome of the U.S. 2020 presidential election,” which is not allowed on the platform.
The Full Send hosts told DaBaby that the Trump episode was removed within 12 hours. “Why’d they do that,” the rapper asked rhetorically. “Cause he’s a gangsta.”
