Questlove posted a list of artists that read The Roots, A Tribe Called Quest, The Isley Brothers, Rihanna, Sade, Megan Thee Stallion, DaBaby, Hiatus Kaiyote, Sault, and he had DaBaby's name crossed out. He said in the caption, "I was hypothetically asked if I was curating an updated version of #SummerOfSoul who would be my acts? I gave my dream list." Quest continued, "And now I’m updating my list ——because it’s 2021 & f**k the bulls**t. I’m especially not here for any savagery (if you’re lost: Google the idiocy of the crossed out). I’m not trine be all performative smurf & create a social flogging or start some clickbait headlines. That’s missing the point. But right is right & his actions are wrong. Somebody Gotta say it: Homophobia / Transphobia / Xenophobia / Misogyny / Racism——this should go w/o saying is morally wrong."
