Days after DaBaby went viral for refusing to buy candy from kids, Soulja Boy bought out two young men’s entire stock — but allowed them to keep their inventory.
“Bankroll. Stop playing with them and I don’t want the candy. First rapper to give a n*gga a bankroll and let him keep the candy,” he said, appearing to be throwing shots at DaBaby.
In DaBaby’s clip, two kids were selling a box of Skittles and Gushers at $2 apiece. When the rapper asked how much to buy the whole box, they told him $200.
“What’s 34 times two,” Baby said, laughing. “It ain’t $200. It ain’t even $100. It’s $68. You give me one too.”
DaBaby only bought one for $2 and social media dragged him.
“Anytime I buy something from somebody hustling like that like I buy the whole thing especially when its kids. Give them the opportunity to just make it make sense why you want $200 for this. You tell me, ‘Man I usually charge somebody this for the whole box I’m just going to charge you $2 all the way down'” the rapper told Complex.
“I would have looked at them and gave them $1000, but I respect their hustle. I ain’t curse them out, this and that. I gave them knowledge and bought one piece of candy from each of them, then closed the door.”
