Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, last year was quite an exceptional one for Lil Baby. First, he delivered his sophomore album My Turn, which saw 20 tracks and additional features from Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Wayne, Moneybagg Yo, Rylo Rodriguez, and more. The project was a massive success, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 thanks to almost 200,000 album equivalent units sold. Months later, the Atlanta star would unveil a deluxe version of My Turn with seven additional cuts — including the runaway hits “We Paid” with 42 Dugg and “The Bigger Picture.” Fast forward to this year, and he’s already teasing new projects, including Drip Harder 2 with Gunna, Super Slimey: Surfer Edition with Gunna and Young Thug, and Lamborghini Boys — a mixtape that will only see appearances from owners of the Italian brand.
Just before 2021 arrived, Lil Baby seemed to kick his new campaign off with the singles “Errbody” and “On Me.” This week, he adds to that with “Real As It Gets,” an ATL Jacob and DY Krazy-produced offering that features Louisville, Kentucky rising star EST Gee. The two can be heard rapping about the streets and their current rockstar lifestyles:
“I been saving my guala, I ain’t saving no bitch, I had pulled out my Glock but I picked up a stick, don’t get in hatin’ shit, I’m on some greatest shit, my people proud, I’m as real as it gets/
Gon’ have to chase me, I don’t like to wait, and I swear I’m impatient, I don’t like to sit, I made a way for you lil’ bitty niggas, I wish you would play with me, boy, you a bitch/”
