Just weeks before signing his deal with Interscope Records, North Carolina slang spitter DaBaby was involved in the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Jaylin Craig in a local Walmart. The charges were eventually dropped due to DaBaby, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, claiming self-defense in the fight.
Now four years after the shooting and DaBaby seeing his share of headlines for the past year, never-seen-before security footage shows the before and after Craig’s fatal shooting.
The case was never investigated as an attempted robbery as DaBaby had claimed, but a gun was found on Craig. The charges were dropped after a key witness, and a Walmart employee never showed up to testify in court.
The footage below was never shown in court during DaBaby’s trial.
