Lil Baby Explains Why He Doesn't Speak His Mind On Certain Topics Outside Of Music

Lil Baby is one of the most famous rappers in the game

today, and with that status comes a lot of attention from

fans and critics. The Atlanta rap star harnessed his

powers and made a massive statement with his 2020

protest single “The Bigger Picture,” addressing police

brutality, racism and inequality. Like many of Lil Baby’s

songs, the record was recently certified double-platinum. 


During an interview with MSNBC, Lil Baby reflected on

the single and how he didn’t intend it to be a song of the

moment. According to Lil Baby, “The Bigger Picture” is

exactly what the title states, confronting issues that are

bigger than all of us. 


“I wasn’t gonna make just a George Floyd song,” Lil Baby

said around the 16-minute mark. “I mentioned what kind

of happened in the song a little bit, but it was the whole

[experience]. It wasn’t just that incident because it was

bigger than that incident. Not saying that incident was not

bigger than other incidents, but it was just my chance to

speak on the whole thing.” 


When it comes to speaking up on political and

controversial issues, Lil Baby said he rather keep his

thought to himself, especially with cancel culture running

rampant in the modern era. 


“I don’t really catch what’s going on or what people are

saying,” he continued. “I don’t really wanna just speak on

situations, especially when I don’t know the whole

backstory [because] something I say might get

misinterpreted. So, I’m quiet as far as me posting.”


Lil Baby further explained he would rather speak his

mind through his music. The issues the country faces are

more than just about one person who was murdered at

the hands of police brutality. 


“I know people, personally, who got killed by the police,”

he said. “That would be fake of me to post about [Floyd]

when I ain’t even post about somebody I know who is

going through [a similar situation].” Lil Baby says he will

continue to express his feelings regarding what’s going on

in the world around him.
