Of all the artists who've been considered proteges of Young Thug, there's maybe none who have carved out their own lane like Lil Baby. You can still hear shades of Thugger's warbling drawl in Baby's flow, but where Thug has existed on his own wavelength for years as a defiant experimentalist, Baby is much more down to Earth, with an unsparing directness that's made him one of the best storytellers in the rap game. This wasn’t always the case.
As we pivot into the Autumn and Winter months, the music world shifts into project mode. Amongst the multitude of artists dropping, the fierce anticipation for a new Lil Baby album has been undeniable . Two years post release of his quadruple platinum album 'My Turn' and a year since his collaborative album 'The Voice Of The Heroes' with Lil Durk, fans have eagerly awaited newness from the Atlanta boss in long form.
