Dominique Armani Jones, (born December 3, 1994) known professionally as Lil Baby, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He is best known for his songs "My Dawg", “Freestyle”, "Yes Indeed" and "Drip Too Hard", the latter two peaking at number 6 and 4 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
From growing up with fellow Atlanta rapper, naked girls to many
arrests and struggles with poverty, Baby has worked hard to become an established rapper and could be told just based by the titles of his album discography. cock
Raised by his single mother, Baby was born into poverty with his two sisters and one brother. He lived off of food stamps and government assistance. His teenage years also dealt with many arrests. In January 2012, he was arrested and charged with burglary. Later that year in August, he attempted to drop out of tenth grade to become a full-time drug dealer, but once again was arrested for possession of dangerous drugs. Two more marijuana possessions and one more theft charge put him in jail for two years. It was during his time in jail when Quality Control Music's Pee and Coach K encouraged Baby to pursue a career in rapping.
He released his first mixtape on April 14, 2017, with Perfect Timing. The project features fellow Atlanta rappers, Lil Yachty, frequent collaborator Gunna, and childhood friend, Young Thug. Baby immediately rose to fame and attracted many listeners. This caused him to drop two more mixtapes in the same year with Harder Than Hard and Too Hard all being released in 2017.
His debut studio album, Harder Than Ever peaked on the US Billboard 200 at the number 3 spot. The tape’s lead single, “Southside” peaked at number 79 on the US Billboard Hot 100 while the second single, “Yes Indeed” features Drake and topped off at number 6 on the charts.
Following the release of Drip Harder, a collaborative album with Gunna, Lil Baby released his fourth mixtape, Street Gossip.
