Atlanta rapper Lil' Baby sent a message to the world through his lyrical gifting last year, speaking up about the injustices in the country and it’s time for a change. His Grammy nominated single, The Bigger Picture beautifully captures his stance, simply stating that way of life is bigger than black and white, emphasizing that the world needs to start somewhere even if it does not happen overnight. The video captures him standing in solidarity during protests calling for justice and supporting the Black community. Lil’ Baby’s voice resonates with his fans because he is relatable, utilizing his platform as an artist for activism and advocacy for what is right and what he believes in.
During the winter season, Lil’ Baby participated in multiple coat drives. He collaborated with Change Happens and gave to families in need in Houston, Texas. Nearly 1,000 coats were given away to over 350 families. His charitable efforts don’t stop there as he has big plans to always give back to the community. Lil’ Baby was given a certificate of recognition from the Office of Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee for being on the ground with the community and his continuous charitable efforts.
Speak up for what’s right and advocate for those who don’t have a voice. Use your art as activism!
“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.” - Proverbs 31:8-9
