Lil Baby has released a candid new song, “The Bigger Picture.”
The powerful track opens with a voice clip of a news report about ongoing protests across the country against police brutality. The Atlanta rapper then shares his experience with racism and police violence, before voicing his support for the Black Lives Matter movement and advocating for change.
“It can’t change overnight / But we gotta start somewhere / Might as well gone ’head start here / We done had a hell of a year / I’m goin make it count while I’m here / God is the only man I fear,” Lil Baby raps on the chorus.
“The Bigger Picture” is one of several recently released songs inspired by the ongoing protests and nationwide outrage over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Tee Grizzley, Lupe Fiasco, Juicy J and Pharaoh Monche have also released tracks which advocate for an end to racism and police violence.
