Christians "rebuke" new DaBaby music video where rapper poses as Christ on the cross

by Sophie Drew

Christians have been left furious over a new music video that depicts rapper DaBaby as Jesus Christ. 

The performer - previously known as Baby Jesus - hung from a wooden cross, covered in scars, in his latest music video. 

The 30-year-old, whose real name is Jonathan Lyndale Kirk, has previously stated that he is Muslim. However, in 2019 he said he was "covered in the blood of Christ".

The video has had more than 10,500 comments on YouTube - mostly from Christians "rebuking" the actions. 

One said: "I hope y'all know Jesus. Stay strong."

A second commenter said: "It's a blessing to see how many people know the truth nowadays just when you thought the world was too blind God always sheds light. Do not be angry at DaBaby or many artist who sold out like him - feel sorry for them for they have to face God like the rest of us and their judgement days will come. None of us are perfect but it's important to keep as pure of heart as you can and keep God closer than anything in your life. God bless."

Another responded to the flurry of angry comments saying: "I'm so happy seeing that many people protecting the name of Lord Jesus. Stay strong, God is with us."

However, most comments simply read, repeatedly: "I rebuke this energy in the name of Jesus." 

On Twitter, one user commented on the ongoing spree of religion-themed performances from rappers, saying: "First Lil Dicky on the cross, then Kendrick with a crown of thorns, now Dababy on the cross… this ongoing mockery of Christ disgusts my soul. Father forgive them, they know not what they do."

Premier has reached out to the Billion Dollar Baby Company - the producers of the video - for comment.
