DaBaby lent a helping hand to one of his fans during a recent trip to Atlanta.
Last week, the artist was in town to host a pop-up shop and meet-and-greet when he met Amanda Rose, a homeless mother who had been living in her car with her young son.
She waited three hours to meet the rapper. When she finally did, she told him about her struggling hat business, Lovely Stitching, and asked him to purchase a few items.
“It a took a lot for me to come here,” she said in a video posted to DaBaby’s Instagram, which has been viewed more than 1 million times.
The entertainer then took out a wad of cash and handed Rose $1,000.
“You keep this [money] and sell [the hats] to somebody else,” he said.
Rose was overwhelmed by the gift and suddenly began crying. She and her son then posed with the star for a few pictures.
Since DaBaby posted the video, which included the entrepreneur’s Instagram handle, Rose has created a website for her company and has received tons of new orders. She also took to Instagram to thank him for his generosity.
“Y’all don’t understand I love him so much & I will crochet him a house if he wants it !😂😍 you are an amazing human being! I hope to gain your continuous support throughout my journey & I will ALWAYS support you,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
