Lil Baby is special. That much is clear. The 25-year-old has the potential to become one of the biggest rap artists ever, beginning a potential monster run with this year's My Turn. The album is expected to hit #1 on the Billboard 200 again after initially debuting there. This week, the Atlanta superstar released his new single "The Bigger Picture," which is being praised by just about everybody who gives it a spin.
Detailing everything that has gone on in the last several weeks, Lil Baby speaks to the people as only he can, delivering conscious rap and sticking true to his brand.
The song has people wishing that the rapper gets his flowers this year with some of his most popular peers publicly stating their admiration for his art.
"Just give lil baby a Grammy this year already," said Tory Lanez on Twitter, earning 18,000 retweets from fans who agree with the statement.
Meek Mill went one step further and referred to Baby as a legend in the making.
"Lil Baby going legend right in front of our eyes," he wrote. Meek's post got over 33,000 retweets.
With My Turn continuously pulling in numbers and the Atlanta star becoming more consistent by the day, it's time to celebrate Lil Baby for what he is: one of the best in the game and a future Hall of Famer.
Tory Lanez Uses Kehlani Photo To React To Miami Clubs Re-Opening
Tory Lanez gleefully reacts after hearing that Miami nightclubs will be back in business this week.
Where will Tory Lanez be heading first? E11EVEN? STORY Nightclub? LIV?
The Toronto native has a love affair with Miami, keeping a residence there and spending most of his time in the beautiful city. He’s sang about his love for the 305 and, now that businesses are starting to re-open after the coronavirus outbreak, he can start enjoying the city to the highest degree.
Hearing that nightclubs will begin to re-open in Miami tomorrow night, Tory Lanez couldn’t be more pleased about the latest development as governments fight to protect us against COVID-19. He shared a photo of Kehlani peeking from out of the garden to express his own reaction to the news.
“I jumped out the bushes like this …. when N***as told me the club is low key back in miami after Friday,” wrote Fargo on Instagram. “I said ‘Woooooowww.'”
As restaurants and clubs begin to accept patrons again, it’s important to remember that the coronavirus has not yet run its course. It’s still in the air and people are still getting sick. If you choose to go out and party, try and maintain social distancing and protect yourself and others by employing the guidelines stated by the World Health Organization.

Tory Lanez Explains The Reality Of A 9-5 After B. Simone’s Comments
B. Simone's comments on a 9-5 job have been heavily criticized today.
B. Simone seems to find herself in the middle of controversy every other week. Despite the fact that there's a lot going on in the world, her thoughts on dating someone with a 9 to 5 job has sparked outrage. Many thought she was narcissistic for her comments while others thought it was plain unrealistic. Either way, the criticism poured in for the second time in a matter of weeks.
"He can’t have a 9-5... He can be a hustling entrepreneur," she said. "I think entrepreneurs should date entrepreneurs…you’re not going to understand my lifestyle. You’re not going to understand why I’m up at 3 a.m. He has to be an entrepreneur.”
Though it seemed to be more about the lifestyle rather than the income, it still rubbed many the wrong way with Tory Lanez being the latest to chime in. Hitting Twitter, he essentially said that even some of the rappers that flex hard for the 'Gram aren't making as much money as those with a regular job.
"Lolol i guess no one told my dog B.Simone that the world got ALOT of people who work a 9-5 THAT GET MORE MONEY THAN SOME OF OUR FAVORITE RAPPERS /ENTERTAINERS ?!?!???" He tweeted before extending an invitation to all the ladies working normal hours.
"For me on the other hand ... all y’all ladies with 9-5s hit my line I got time," he added.
Spectacular Still Feels Wronged By Tory Lanez: "Stop Trying To Fool The People"
Pretty Ricky's Spectacular still feels a type of way about Tory Lanez after their sample fiasco.
In a new video uploaded to social media, Spectacular explains his side of the story, noting that he still feels majorly wronged by Tory Lanez and claiming to have lost over $350,000 working with the rapper.
"When I talk about stealing my record, I'm talking 'bout sampling my record," asserts Spectacular. "You put out 'Grind On Me,' not even hollering at me after we was already having conversations, and then you put out 'Yessir,' 'Your Body,' and you literally called me on the phone. You talked to me, bro! And asked me, can I get on the record for you. You told me to come to the studio in Miami. Hit Factory. I couldn't make it because I was on tour. You knew I was on tour, bro. You came to my meet and greet. And the first thing you said to me was, 'Man, you still mad at me huh? I'll just pay you back that money.' Cause you know what you did bro!"
Spectacular goes on to say that he lost $350,000 of his own money dealing with Tory Lanez. He says that the Toronto native has never made things right with him even though he agreed to clear "Yessir" for him.
"You know exactly what I'm talking about. Stop trying to fool the people," says Spectacular at the end.
Do you think Tory is in the wrong or is Spectacular overreacting?
