Some artists define a genre, but Lil Baby defines a generation. The Grammy Award-winning rapper has smashed records, made history, and impacted the course of modern hip-hop with his instantly identifiable and inimitable style. He has garnered dozens of multi platinum certifications and tens of billions of streams as arguably the biggest new rapper to emerge this decade.

Following the success of his platinum full-length debut Harder Than Ever in 2018, he seized #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with 2020’s My Turn, becoming “the year’s #1 selling and #1 streaming album in the US.” At first, it cemented him as “2020’s first and only artist to go double-platinum,” but it has since gone quadruple-platinum and has logged 85 weeks in the top 10 of the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart – marking the longest top-tier run in the chart’s history. He notably tied Prince and Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits and Taylor Swift for “most weeks atop the Billboard Top 200 in 2020” with a total of 6.

Out of eight nominations, he scored his first Grammy® Award in 2022. He teamed up with Lil Durk for The Voice of the Heroes, marking his second #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200. It’s just the beginning though. Most recently, he released “Right On” and “In A Minute” which both songs debuted on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. This feat puts Lil Baby in rare territory, making him the youngest of only 12 artists to have ever landed 100 or more songs on the Hot 100.
Fan reviews:

His stage performances, interactions with the crowds, and his music in general is everything! Not only is he an amazing artist but is also someone you wouldn’t want to miss performing!

The best show I’ve ever been to. Worth every penny. Whole arena was lit, his solo songs and features with 42 Dugg went crazy. Great performance, definitely a must see.

I seen Baby twice so far , I love him . His performance was everything!

Best concert all year. This concert was amazing. It started off rocky at first ( a lot of artists I want familiar with) but once Lil Baby hit the stage and started bringing out his “friends” I was ecstatic. It was an amazing experience. I love the “and friends” concerts and I hope ‘Drake and friends’ is next!
