Despite many noting the rapper has been on the "longest streak of good behavior" in his professional career, DaBaby appears to have issues selling tickets in the musical city of New Orleans, much to the glee of his detractors online. This viral news added further ammunition to those opposed to DaBaby who've been publicly stating their wish for his downfall over any one of his numerous past controversies.
DaBaby didn’t use a homophobic slur today!

Dababy’s concert in New Orleans this weekend has reportedly been canceled due to “low ticket sales.”

DaBaby’s fatal flaw was not making good music and relying on antics to create and maintain a buzz.

While there were many who were trying to blame the economy or talking about how high ticket prices have been since COVID-19 created a gap year and a half without shows, this doesn't appear to be the case.
According to multiple sources, a large amount of the tickets that were up for grabs to see the show were as low as $35, though that was before the litany of extra fees that can sometimes triple a ticket's expected price.
A DaBaby concert sold 500 out of 14,000 tickets in New Orleans.

This cancelation of the concert has also been pointed to by some as the start of DaBaby's collapse as a musical artist, with some making fun of his recent concert performances and saying that this one would have been a dud if he didn't cancel it to "save his ego."
