DaBaby has paid tribute to his late brother on his new EP, My Brother’s Keeper (Long Live G).
The seven-track project features cover art of the rapper and his brother, Glenn Johnson, together as kids, while the songs see assists from Polo G, Meek Mill, NoCap and Toosii.
Johnson, who was 34 years old, passed away on November 3 from a gunshot wound that police suspect was self-inflicted, as The Charlotte Observer reported. His cause of death has not yet been confirmed and the incident is still under investigation.
Shortly after news of his brother’s death broke, DaBaby took to social media to urge those suffering from mental illness to seek professional help.
“If you can’t get over depression GET HELP, you see a loved one struggling get them help, they refuse the help, MAKE em get treated anyway,” he wrote on Twitter. “You suffer from PTSD take that sh*t serious & get help! I’m bouta get a therapist my damn self!”
Last week, DaBaby also released a video for “Blind” featuring Young Thug, from the deluxe edition of his album Blame it on Baby. He also made a guest appearance on Megan Thee Stallion’s debut studio album Good News, on the song “Cry Baby.”
DaBaby chased the release of his EP with a video for the track “Gucci Peacoat.” Watch it here:
