Rapper DaBaby may be a sweetheart to his mama, pictured with him at this weekend's BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta, but his fans are afraid to approach him due to his bodyguards' reputation for extreme violence.

DaBaby ran into one of his voluptuous fans while out shopping and spending his hard earned cash at a mall in Atlanta. DaBaby was in town to perform at the 2019 BET Hip Hop Awards at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, October 5.

The single mom was so flustered when she saw her favorite rapper, that she hyperventilated and broke out in a cold sweat.

But she calmed down when DaBaby asked her for a hug and then complimented her vintage ride.

"I didn't want to get knocked out!" the woman said before hugging the rap star.

DaBaby's bodyguards have a reputation for violence and knocking out his overzealous fans, particularly the females.

DaBaby is a little thing, about 5-foot-6, so he needs all the protection he can get.

DaBaby made headlines this weekend when his new album Kirk kept the iconic Beatles album Abbey Road from returning to No. 1 for the classic album's 50th anniversary reissue.

The Beatles' Abbey Road debuted at No. 1 in the UK, but DaBaby's album Kirk kept Abbey Road from a historic chart double on the Billboard 200. Kirk dropped on Sept. 27 to rave reviews from music critics and 145,000 equivalent sales.

The North Carolina rapper is best known for his single "Suge" off his debut album, Baby On Baby (2019).

DaBaby used a throwback photo that shows him as an infant sitting on his daddy's lap for the Kirk album cover.

The 27-year-old Capricorn, who was born Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, named his second studio album after his and his dad's surname.

"Kirk, my last name, it holds big weight. It's all about confidence, being a leader. It's going to be the title of my new album, too, by the way," he said in an interview last year.
 

Blac Chyna and her hairstylist Kellon Deryck arrived at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards held at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach, Florida on Friday. She wore a white stretch, cutout long sleeve turtleneck top and matching pants with metallic platform sandals.

BET Hip Hop Awards Groupie Survival Kit

The BET Hip Hop Awards 2013 takes place this weekend in Atlanta. The BET Awards are more than just a celebration of hip hop culture, it's also a groupie convention. Wherever there is a large gathering of rappers, there will be groupies looking to take advantage of them.

Groupies and baby mama hopefuls will be flying in from all around the country to attend the festivities in the hopes of striking it rich and going home pregnant with a dumb rapper's seed.

Thanks to loyal reader Zeralyn for sending in this video of tips and survival kits for young groupies, such as pre-poked condoms and rape kits complete with swabs just in case the evening doesn't go as planned.

Watch the video after the break. Warning: Profanity and adult situational comedy.

You know things are looking bad for the music industry when the biggest celebs on the red carpet at the BET Hip Hop Awards were nobodies with butts filled with silicone, and reality TV personalities. Someone had better do something fast to revitalize the industry before everyone ends up being out of work.

Speaking of random, made-for-TV fashion designer Sheree Whitfield could have done a lot better than this jumpsuit, I think. Isn't it a shame how her ex-husband (and former NFL player) Bob Whitfield rants and rages at her daily on his Twitter page and nobody cares?

They say producer/rapper Missy Elliott escorted a hawt chick on her arm into the Civic Center.

Rappers Trina, left, and Soulja Boy, who bonded out of jail Wednesday after his arrest for running from the cops.


Rap legends Kid N' Play were in the house.



Plies graced the red carpet with his thug presence.


I thought this boy was in jail? Rapper Lil Boosie and his daughter sat in the audience. Boosie was sentenced to two years in prison recently. I'm guessing he's out on bond while he appeals his sentence.


I don't even know who Alesha Renee is. This is sad...
