MIAMI (AP) - Grammy-nominated rapper DaBaby has been released from jail on a misdemeanor battery charge while awaiting an upcoming court date.

Miami-Dade County records show the musician, whose real name is Jonathan Kirk, left the Miami-Dade jail on Saturday night.

Authorities arrested him Thursday in Miami, saying he allegedly argued with a music promoter over payment for a performance. Kirk, who’s best known for his single “Suge,” was in South Florida for a New Year’s Eve performance at a Miami Beach nightclub.

Thursday’s incident began at Novotel Miami Brickell, where Kirk was staying, according to the arrest report. Kirk is expected in court again in Miami this week.
