50 Cent doesn't think that rapper DaBaby is canceled permanently.

"He is a really talented, special artist, right? And he just transitioned from being in that pool that everyone's in as a Rap artist. Like, they didn't notify him that he's turning into a superstar," said 50 Cent.

DaBaby has been canceled for his recent homophobic remarks. The rapper apologized twice on social media but was dropped from almost every festival. He has since deleted his apology.

"There's nobody that tells you, 'Now, you're held to these standards,' that are mainstream standards that you can't say things and you can't do these different things.

"He didn't have a publicist involved and this is why the response took so long. Even his apology, the first apology attempt at it, was what made it worse. You know what it is? When a person makes a general statement, 'cause he made a general statement on stage, he's not directing that to any individual, but what happens is he's still new and he's being attacked by individuals."
