Lil Baby released his song and video “The Bigger Picture” 24 hours before Rayshard Brooks was killed by police in Atlanta at a Wendy’s drive-thru. Lil Baby lets it be known he doesn’t want to be involved in politics during his GQ interview.
Baby mentioned on IG that he wanted to work with Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on police reform but he immediately deleted the post.
“The more I’m seeing what’s up with all that shit, the more I’m like, ‘Let me back up off politics,’ ” he says. “I don’t want to be no Malcolm X or Martin Luther [King].… I stuck my nose in it. I’m good on that.”
He has legitimate reasons for not wanting to get involved in the political arena. Paul Howard, the DA that sent him to prison in 2014 stated on social media that Lil Baby had given him an endorsement.
“If I can sit at a table and really talk to you like I’m human, versus the politics and you in that courtroom, you really might come to reality versus you sending n-ggas goddamn down the road for 500 years,” he says.
Baby states, that he in fact did NOT endorse Howard.
