Dunkin’ Donuts? No, Stabbin’ Donuts!

Posted on | June 11, 2021 | Comments Off on Dunkin’ Donuts? No, Stabbin’ Donuts!

Say hello to Marquavis “Dae Dae” Goolsby, 28, who is both (a) a popular rapper in the Atlanta area and (b) accused of aggravated assault, also (c) not inclined to take “no” for an answer. Like, if this guy comes through your drive-thru line at Dunkin’ Donuts, you’d better pray you’re not out of his favorite pastry, or he’ll stab you — allegedly, I hasten to add:

An Atlanta rapper wanted in connection to a violent stabbing at a Dunkin’ Donuts last year is behind bars, Georgia authorities say.
Marquavis Goolsby, best known by his stage name Dae Dae, was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault charges, according to Union City Police. He was booked into the Fulton County Jail, where he remained as of Thursday.
Earlier this month, authorities named the 28-year-old as a suspect in the December attack at the Union City shop that left a teen employee with a gash to her arm, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The stabbing was allegedly sparked by the rapper “not being able to get what he wanted,” according to an incident report obtained by McClatchy News.
“The crazy thing about the entire exchange is that, I believe that he wanted a certain type of donut, or donuts, and they did not have those donuts, apparently,” Kamau Mason, an attorney for the Dunkin’ worker, told WGCL.
Officers arrived to the restaurant at 6 p.m. on Dec. 5 in response to a call about the fight, according to the incident report. A 17-year-old worker told police a man came through the drive-thru and grew upset when they were out of a particular item.
The man sped off but came back a short time later, and he started arguing with employees inside the store, the worker said. Things took a violent turn when the man pulled out a knife and proceeded to swing it at the girl in uniform.
Part of the attack was captured on cell phone video.

So who is Dae Dae, anyway?

This is not Goolsby’s first brush with the law. In 2018, he was arrested on stolen gun and drug charges, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported.
Goolsby was a passenger in a Chevrolet Tahoe that was pulled over for speeding in Greene County. A representative from the Greene sheriff’s office told the AJC at the time that deputies searched the car and found marijuana and a stolen gun. Goolsby claimed that he didn’t know the gun was stolen, the AJC reported.
Goolsby, who has not released new music since 2019, remains best known for his 2016 song “Wat U Mean (Aye Aye Aye),” which he remixed with Lil Yachty the same year. He also released an album in 2016 with Atlanta producer London Tyler Holmes, aka London on da Track, which featured an appearance by 21 Savage.
“Wat U Mean” has racked up more than 54 million streams on Spotify, where he has a monthly average of more than 230,000 listeners. Although his last YouTube upload is more than a year old, he has 214,000 subscribers on the platform.

Just driving around at high speed with dope and a stolen gun which, of course, he didn’t know was stolen. A real honor student, this guy.

The rapper claims he’s being framed, because police are racist or whatever. Just make sure you got the right donuts when he shows up, because you wouldn’t want to get (allegedly) stabbed.
