Lil Baby declared 2020 to be his with his triple-platinum My Turn album, and the HipHopDX 2020 Rapper of the Year is planning on exerting his rap dominance once again in 2021. Baby delivered his first single of the year on Thursday (March 4) with “Real As It Gets,” which features emerging Louisville rapper EST Gee.
The Atlanta native reassesses his role in Hip Hop as one of the leaders of the new school following his banner campaign, and he’s just happy that the people around him are proud of his recent accomplishments.
“I been savin’ my guala I ain’t savin’ no bitch/I had put down my glock but I picked up a stick /Don’t get in hating shit /I’m on some greatest shit /My people proud I’m as real as it gets,” Baby raps.
An accompanying visual directed by Caleb Jermale also arrived alongside the gritty track. Proving his loyalty to those in his inner-circle, Baby returns to the trenches and celebrates his wins with those that were there before the fame.
The Grammy-nominated rapper counts up his dollars with the CMG signee in a Supreme hat, North Face jacket and leather pants before heading to the strip club with his crew to put those dollars to use by making it rain.
Baby’s hunger is still there and it doesn’t look like he’s planning on letting up anytime soon. With the prospect of another solo album arriving at some point later this year looking likely, there could also be a joint project with Lil Durk looming in the pipeline, which Durk teased in February. The duo has plenty of heat in the stash and they’ve shown undeniable chemistry on previous collabs.
