Dominique Jones, (born December 3, 1994) known professionally as Lil Baby, is an American rapper, singer and songwriter 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.

Early life

Dominique Jones was born in Atlanta, Georgia.[2] He was 2 years old when his father left the family, leaving his single mother to raise him and his 2 siblings. While he was not struggling academically, Jones would repeatedly get in trouble, resulting in him dropping out of high school in the tenth grade. Jones was always looking up to the older guys in his neighborhood. His mother and siblings have talked about how he was very busy and that he was always hustling and getting money.[3] In early 2012 he was charged for possession with intent to sell among other charges. His original lawyer urged him to take a 2-year plea deal, but Jones refused, and acquired a new lawyer. This new lawyer placed Jones in a special program that would only hold him for a year.[4] While in this program, he got into an altercation with a white prisoner over racial comments. After that, Jones' sentencing was replaced with the original 2-year deal. Later in 2013, he had a charge of possession of marijuana, less than an ounce. Then in 2014, he had another charge of possession of marijuana with intent to sell among other things. After being incarcerated for 2 years, he began his rap career with 4PF (Four Pockets Full) and Quality Control Music.[5][6]


Career

2016-present: Beginnings and Harder Than Ever

Shortly after serving 2 years, Lil Baby dropped his mixtape Perfect timing. He released this mixtape with musical guidance from fellow Atlanta native, Young Thug and under the label 4 Pockets Full, Wolfpack and Quality Control Music. The mixtape features some big names like Lil Yachty and Young Thug but mostly has local artists. Even though the mixtape did have next to no promotion it still performed well and managed to gain attention inside and outside of Atlanta.

Shortly after releasing perfect timing he released his second mixtape, Harder than hard July 18, 2017. This mixtape only widened Lil Baby´s fame and only gave him more widespread notoriety. The mixtape was published by 4 Pockets Full, Wolfpack and Quality Control Music and was lead by his hit single "My Dawg".

October 9th, Lil Baby released his collaboration mixtape with Marlo, 2 The Hard Way. This mixtape did not create such a big buzz as the two former tapes but it still garnered some attention. This mixtape was also published by 4 Pockets Full, Wolfpack and Quality Control Music.

Lil Baby finally started to break through to the masses with his mixtape, Too Hard. This mixtape was lead by his hit single "Freestyle", which he released a music video prior to his mixtape on November 5th. Thanks to the success of "Freestyle", Lil Baby attracted a lot of attention towards his upcoming mixtape. When the mixtape finally dropped it was a hit and had several popular songs for example "All of a sudden" with featuring artist Moneybagg Yo. This mixtape was defining for much of Lil Baby´s current success and fame. The mixtape was published and promoted by 4 Pockets Full, Wolfpack and Quality Control Music.

In May 2018, Lil Baby released his debut studio album, Harder Than Ever, which debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 chart.[7] The album was supported by the singles, "Southside" and "Yes Indeed" featuring , the latter peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100.[8]

In October of 2018 after he had dropped his first studio album Harder Than Ever, he released his collaboration album Drip Harder with fellow artist Gunna on October 5th. This mixtape was very well received and also featured high profile features such as Drake on Never Recover and Nav on Off White VLONE. The mixtape had several hits and bumped Lil Baby's popularity up. The song "Drip Too Hard" featuring Gunna was certified RIAA Platinum.[9] and MC Platinum[10] The mixtape was released under the labels Quality Control, YSL Records and Motown Capitol.

In November 2018 he released his mixtape Street Gossip.

He is starring in How High 2, the sequel to the 2001 stoner film How High, premiering April 20, 2019 on MTV.[11]
