When it came time for her performance at Sunday night’s 2021 BET Awards, DaBaby brought all the energy, stunts and, of course, a giant mascot for her rendition of her single “Ball If I Want To”.
Leaving into the crowd, DaBaby made her way to the stage in a teal letterman jacket, declaring that “it’s not even my birthday, but I can play if I want.” The rapper danced alongside his mascot on a basketball court themed stage, had his hair cut, put on his smoothest dance moves and performed with the crowd.
Then the rising superstar literally rose into the air, taking with him the “twenty-two inches of weaving” he was rapping on, shaking it for the crowd. Just as the performance was starting to wrap up, her cheerleader support dancers went all out, a few basketball players delivered slam dunks, and DaBaby pulled it all together, striking her signature pose.
DaBaby was one of Sunday’s top nominees alongside Megan Thee Stallion, with seven nominations in total, including Album of the Year, Best Male Hip-Hop Artist and multiple entries in the Best Male Hip-Hop category. collaboration.
