Rapper DaBaby and organizers behind his Saturday night concert near Atlanta have come under fire on social media for failing to protect concertgoers against the coronavirus.

Several fans took to social media to say they tested positive after attending his rap concert in Georgia, where organizers failed to enforce social distancing measures.

The "Suge" star ignored coronavirus concerns and pressed ahead with his Fourth of July celebration at the Cosmopolitan Premier Lounge in Decatur, even though positive tests across the state have spiked in recent days.

Prior to the gig, promoter MyDJDre told TMZ the venue would only be at 40 per cent capacity to allow for attendees to socially distance while inside the club.

Organizers said they would turn away fans at the door if they failed to wear a mask or refused to have their temperature checked upon entry.

But concertgoers did not socially distance or wear masks as they stood shoulder-to-shoulder inside the packed club which has room for 4,000 people.

DaBaby was also supposed to be limited to having a three-person entourage with him during his performance, but he arrived at the venue with a bus load of people and brought a crowd up on the stage too.

After the footage began circulating on social media, many concerned users shared their disapproval at the apparent lack of concern for public safety.

Responding to the club's DJ, who boasted about DaBaby's gig attracting "the whole city" in an Instagram post, one person remarked, "I wouldn't be bragging that 'the whole city came out' in the middle of a pandemic."

"This is so irresponsible. You should be ashamed," read another comment.

Another user tweeted: "I absolutely love Dababy and his music but this is such an awful idea. Risking thousands of lives for a silly a** concert is so foolish. Cancel this ridiculousness."

A third user wrote: "For god's sake man America stay home do you not fear death at this point? Who's going to a dababy concert to just see this guy lip sync all of his songs that sound the same anyway."

DaBaby and MyDJDre have yet to respond to the latest backlash.

Vanilla Ice is going forward with his decision to perform live in concert this Saturday, July 4, in Texas.

The news has drawn criticism online over the rising number of Covid-19 cases among young people in Texas.

The 52-year-old rap musician, real name Robert Van Winkle, recently announced he will be performing live at a gig titled the Independence Day Throwback Beach Party, which will take place at the Emerald Point Bar & Grill in Austin.

And despite the fact that all bars in the state were closed down earlier this week due to a surge in coronavirus cases, the concert will go on as planned thanks to a legal loophole: the venue is classified as a restaurant - not a bar.

The Austin health department is urging fans not to go to the concert due to the ongoing COVID-19 hysteria.

Vanilla Ice is excited to hit the stage after a three-month forced quarantine for a virus that causes no symptoms or mild symptoms in people under 60. Ice and his fans are eager to get on with their lives.

"I can't wait to get back to this," the "Ice Ice Baby" rapper wrote on Instagram promoting the gig.

"The 90s were the best. We didn't have coronavirus, or cell phones, or computers. We had 5.0's, blockbuster, Beavis and Butthead, Wayne's World, Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan … Mortal Kombat is still better than Fortnight (video game) … the last of the great decades."

But Instagram users were quick to slam the rapper for being "irresponsible" in staging the gig amid the pandemic.

"When you get to heaven and Jesus asks you how you ended up in Heaven he gonna send you right on down to hell with a head slap when you tell him you was at a Vanilla Ice show and caught the virus," on pirate user wrote.

"If you get COVID because you went to the Vanilla Ice concert that somehow is the exception to closure rules, frankly, you deserve that," another user wrote.

The criticism comes after country singer Chase Rice was slammed online for hosting a concert which didn't adhere to social distancing guidelines amid the pandemic.
 

Update: Rapper Vanilla Ice has backed out of plans to perform at an Independence Day party after confessing he "didn't know" how bad the coronavirus spike was in Austin, Texas.
 

Meek Mill

Philly rapper Meek Mill is already one week into his court-ordered house arrest, and he is already appealing. He isn't stressing about the house arrest; it's the concert ban that he is objecting to.

Meek is appealing the ban on the grounds that he is broke and the ban violates the most sacred rights of American citizenship: the ability to support himself financially.

Hundreds of J. Cole fans stood in the sweltering Atlanta heat for hours for a chance to pay $1 to attend the rapper's "Dollar and a Dream" concert tour at The Loft on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, the rapper tweeted:

Atlanta tonight. 1 dollar. The Loft (at Center Stage Atlanta)
1374 West Peachtree St NW, Atlanta, GA
8PM Doors. 1st come 1st serve

The line stretched for 2 city blocks. Though Atlanta fans were patient and orderly, there were a few skirmishes reported at Tuesday night's concert in Miami. Cole tweeted: "Amazing moment. Sorry to those that could not get in. These shows will be hectic every night. It's 1 dollar. Be respectful."
