In June 2019, he was convicted of carrying a concealed firearm and sentenced to a year of unsupervised probation. In early 2020, he was questioned during a robbery investigation in Miami after members of his crew allegedly robbed and beat up a music promoter who owed Dababy $10,000.

Through South Coast, Dababy entered into a distribution deal with Jay-Z’s entertainment company, Roc Nation, to release the 2018 mixtape “Blank Blank.” The popularity of that mixtape led to a bidding war among record labels, and Dababy signed a seven-figure deal with Interscope Records in 2019.
