DaBaby has paid tribute to his older brother after he took his own life.

The father of four’s death is said to have occurred hours after he posted a video of himself in a car with a gun, appearing visibly upset as he discussed how his life had turned out.
Reacting to the news, DaBaby took to his Instagram page to change his bio to “LONG LIVE MY BROTHER”, alongside a black heart and white dove emoji.
The rapper, real name Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, previously documented his brother’s mental health struggles on 2019’s ‘Intro’, the lead single from second album ‘Kirk’.
