I met jay z. He let the security walk with bey an he walked by his self. Boss Shit.
I’m really not that fond of meeting other celebrities, but Jay-Z is a guy who I look up to, and look up to the way he moves and the things that he’s done. I see myself following in his footsteps.
In related news: Lil Baby took the stage at the 2021 Grammys to deliver a fiery performance of “The Bigger Picture,” where he depicted police brutality. The track was also among the night’s nominated songs.
Lil Baby explained his reasons behind the controversial performance.
I wanted to use a specific situation that would give people an understanding of where I come from. I didn’t really want to use the George Floyd or Breonna Taylor [killings] or something. I wanted to use something that stood by me. That happened in Atlanta, and I live in Atlanta, and I’ve been in some of those same exact situations.
