DaBaby is taking a break from celebrating the release of his recent album, KIRK, to handle some legal matters.

According to a new report from TMZ, DaBaby is suing Nothing To Something ENTertainment for a breach of contract pertaining to a scheduled gig, back in May. The rapper was expected to perform at Centro Night Club in Lawrence, M.A., however, DaBaby never followed through. Per the documents, DaBaby states that the promoter promised him two security guards at the club, but NTS failed to deliver on show night. As a result, DaBaby opted out of his performance.

Back in July, NTS sued DaBaby for canceling the gig and claimed that they paid the Charlotte rapper upfront. Interestingly enough, on the same night, DaBaby’s personal security guard was seen punching a guy outside the venue and the attack was caught on camera.

This isn’t the first time that DaBaby’s security guard has been a subject matter. Last month, DaBaby’s muscle, Kane, explained why he punched a female fan at a New Orleans concert. “As long as he don’t touch my artist, I’m cool so I’m just gonna get him out of here,” he explained. “Next thing I know, this n---a punched my artist in the back of his head. As you see in the video, a n---a punched my artist in the back of the head. So, you can’t just be punching people in the back of the head and expect nothing to happen to you. So I turned around, seen who did it and I put the person down.”

For the past few weeks, DaBaby has been enjoying the success of his sophomore album. This time around, the 27-year-old recruited Migos, Nicki Minaj, Gucci Mane, Chance The Rapper, Moneybagg Yo, Lil Baby, Stunna 4 Vegas, YK Osiris and Kevin Gates.
