Lil baby has written a plethora of songs at this point, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he remembers the lyrics to each one.
In Tuesday’s episode (April 20) of Atlanta TikTok by Jewelry Unlimited rapper series called Can artists finish their own lyrics?, Baby drew blanks for his track, “I’m Straight”, from his 2018 album Harder than ever. The premise of the series is that rhymers must complete the bars of their own songs in exchange for $ 1,000 off their purchase, and it doesn’t appear that the ATL-bred artist received the reduction.
The clip begins with the lyrics, “I’m cool about love and high-fives / You niggas can’t follow my guys.”
When it was time for Lil baby to continue, he paused a bit, apparently unable to remember the lines that followed. The show’s host repeats the lyrics, now including the following two bars: “You can’t get all that drip in a lifetime / I went out and brought it up at the right time.”
The series host then skips a few words and recites a line that drops Wafi Lalani, owner of Jewelry Unlimited. “I went to Wafi, I told them I wanted to shine” is what Baby raps on the song. the Music quality control the rapper seems to have a light bulb moment when this particular measure is mentioned, but he still can’t seem to remember the remaining lyrics.
Lil baby repeat the aforementioned measure with part of the following words: “I went to Wafi, I told them I wanted to shine / Then cut it quarter of a million.” However, he then throws in the towel.
“It’s hard… Shit, I forgot,” Baby said. “You don’t have to make it easy,” he replies to the host. Later, adding, “It was a good one. I’m not going to lie. It was a good one. Okay, give me another one.”
Although Lil Baby stumbled upon his three-year-old lyrics, there will likely be some new ones coming out soon. Last month, during an interview with MTV News, the CEO of 4 Pockets Full revealed that an album with Lil Durk, tentatively titled, The voice of the hero, be there soon. Baby also shared that his Lamborghini boys mixtape, first teased in December 2019, is still ongoing.
