DJ Who Inspired Hurricane Chris’ “A Bay Bay,” Arrested and Charged With Rape
Terrance “DJ Bay Bay” Stewart was arrested on Monday (August 6) in Shreveport, La. after being charged with a count of simple rape and intimidation of a witness. While DJ Bay Bay is largely unknown to mainstream hip-hop fans, the radio personality inspired upcoming rapper Hurricane Chris’ hit song, “A Bay Bay,” which is currently at No. 10 on the Billboard singles chart. According to the Shreveport Times, Stewart is a DJ at club Kokopelli’s, where a woman was allegedly found lying drunk and unconscious around 4 a.m. on Thursday, August 2. Authorities then arrested Stewart and placed him in city jail on $150,000 bail. “I’m not sure if the sexual assault happened after she was drunk or before she got drunk,” Kacee Hargrave, a Shreveport police spokesperson told the Shreveport Times. “We are continuing our investigation. More arrests are possible.” Stewart’s lawyer, Eric Johnson, denied the claims in a statement given to the Shreveport Times. “Mr. Stewart is innocent of these charges and intends to vigorously defend himself against them,” Johnson said. “We are very confident that after the case is tried by a judge or jury that Mr. Stewart will be exonerated.” In addition, another local hip-hop figure, Ronald “DJ Ron” Johnson, is wanted for an alleged connection in the case. Shreveport police believed Johnson was going to turn himself in on Monday, but the DJ never showed.
