DaBaby’s Older Brother Glenn Johnson Passes Away at 34

Glenn Johnson, the 34-year-old older brother of DaBaby, has passed away at age 34.

On Tuesday, TMZ reported that Johnson died in Charlotte, North Carolina, from a “suicide.”

The outlet reports that earlier in the day, Johnson posted a video where he allegedly held a gun and was visibly upset and crying. Reportedly, Johnson says in the clip that he had been frequently wronged in the past.

Sources told TMZ that shortly after posting the video, Johnson allegedly shot himself in the head and died.

Fox 46 Charlotte adds that around 1:39 p.m. on Tuesday, officers responded to 10230 Berkeley Place Drive in reference to an assault with deadly weapon call.

After authorities found Johnson, he was taken to a local hospital and was pronounced dead.

Eyewitness News 9 says that “Johnson was shot and killed in a parking lot on Berkeley Place Drive off Mallard Creek Church Road.”

Both outlets say the incident is currently classified as a death investigation. Fox 46 Charlotte adds that if foul play is determined to be involved, police will provide an update.

Unlike TMZ, however, both outlets do not say Johnson passed away from suicide.

On Tuesday, DaBaby honored his brother by posting lyrics from his song “Intro.”

“My brother be thinkin’ that we don’t love him and let him struggle like we ain’t family. Like I won't give up all I got to see you -----,” he wrote and rapped.

The MC added, “I would’ve gave up all I had to see you happy -----.”

TMZ says Johnson is survived by three daughters and a son.

Our condolences go out to DaBaby and his family for their loss.
