At midnight, Baby came through on his politically-charged new “The Bigger Picture” single release. The song focuses on the current protests against police brutality.
Lil Baby has shared a new song in response to the national protests over the killing of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. “The Bigger Picture” opens with clips from news broadcasts reporting on nationwide protests following Floyd and Taylor’s deaths, as well as chants of “I can’t breathe” from the protesters themselves. Throughout the song, Lil Baby talks about the fact that he’s had many altercations with the law, mentioning that “corrupted police been the problem where I’m from” before singing: “but I would be lying if I said it was all of ‘em.” (Pitchfork)
