A live experiment in whether it's possible to dig a hole deep enough to come out the other side.

That’s not all he said. During his set at Rolling Loud,DaBaby referred to HIV and AIDSas “them deadly sexually transmitted diseases that’ll make you die in two to three weeks”—which is not only false, but feeds into dangerous and outdated myths about the virus and disease.
