Lil Baby's 'The Bigger Picture' catapulted the Atlanta rap star to new heights for its strong message on police brutality, racism and inequality.
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 addressing police brutality, racism and inequality. Like many of Lil Babys songs, the record was recently certified double-platinum. During an interview with MSNBC , Lil Baby reflected on the single and how he didnt 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 wasnt 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 . It wasnt 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 dont really catch whats going on or what people are saying, he continued. I dont really wanna just speak on situations, especially when I dont know the whole backstory something I say might get misinterpreted. So, Im 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.
