Lil Baby lyrics

MusicGateway


The past year was marked by much civil unrest due to the many lives lost due to police brutality such as George floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others. Numerous demonstrations took place across the country and Lil baby have shown solidarity with the fight against injustice in several ways. He paraded through his hometown of Atlanta and released the anthemic protest track, “The big picture”.

The song, which addresses systemic racism, police abuse of the black community, and Baby’s past encounters with law enforcement, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart behind “Rockstar” by DaBaby and Roddy Ricch. The record also marked the two appointments of the founder of 4 Pockets Full (4PF) in 2021 Grammy Awards for the best rap song and the best rap performance.

Check out the lyrics to “The Bigger Picture” by Lil Baby below.

INTRO – Topical voice over

“Protests continue amid growing national outcry over George Floyd’s death (No justice, no peace in the background), last night’s peaceful protests in Minneapolis escalated as protests Protesters clashed with police, who fired tear gas and rubber bullets. The main message they have is that they want to see the agents involved, they want to see these agents arrested. Well-known Atlanta lawyer says without video of what happened he doesn’t
think any district attorney would have brought criminal charges against them. “

PAY ONE
Trade my 4×4 for a G63
Ain’t it freer Lil Steve
I gave them luck and luck and luck again
I even told them please
I think it’s crazy that the police shoot you and know you are dead but still tell you to freeze
Fucced up, I saw what I saw
Guess that means hold him back if he says he can’t breathe
It’s too many mothers who cry
They kill us for no reason
It’s been too long to be equal
Throw us in cages like dogs and hyenas
I went to court and they sent me to jail
My mama was crushed when they said I couldn’t leave
First I was drunk then I quickly sobered up when I heard all this time they gave Taleeb
He was sentenced to life over
We come from a few products from our environment
How the fucc they went to blame us
You can’t fight fire with fire
I know but at least we can light the flames a little
Not every colored person is stupid
And not all white people are racists
I judge by the mind and the heart
I don’t really like faces
Stranded the way we live ain’t no better, you gotta know how to survive
Crazy I had to tell all my relatives to carry a gun when they go out
Look in the mirror every time you drive
Overprotective, go crazy for mine
You have to pay attention to the signs
Looks like the blind follows the blind
Thinking of everything that’s going on
I reinforce the security in my house
I am with my fellows whether they are right or wrong
I’m calling him now he’ll pick up the phone
And it’s 5 a.m. he wakes up on it
Tell them where i am then they come
I see blue lights, I’m scared and I start to run
This shit is crazy, they supposed to protect us
Throw us the handcuffs and stop us
While they get home at night that shit messed up
Knowing we needed help they neglect us
I wonder who will make them respect us
I can see in your eyes that you are fed up
Fuck around got my shot, I won’t let go
They know we have a problem together
They know we can storm any weather

CHORUS
It’s bigger than black and white
It’s a problem with the whole way of life
It can’t change overnight
But we have to start somewhere
Might as well get out of here
We had a hell of a year
I’ll make it count while I’m here
God is the only man I fear

PINS TWO
Fuck i go to the front line
He’ll blow your ass if you pass that gun line
You know when the storm goes away
Then the sun
You gotta put your head in the game
When it’s time for the crisis
I want all my sons to grow up to be monsters
I want all my girls to show up in public
Looks like we are losing our country
But we have to stand up for something
So that’s where it comes down to
Every video that I see on my conscience
I got the power now, I gotta say something
Corrupt police has been the problem where I come from
But I would be lying if I said that was it
I didn’t do this for the trend
I am not them
Changes with the law, I had a lot
People who speak for the people
I am proud of them
Stay together, we can get it out of them
I can’t lie like I don’t rap about murder and drugs
But I tell my young people to vote
I did what I did because I had no choice or no hope
I had to jump and go
This bullshit is all we know
But it’s time for a change
I have time to be serious
No time for no games
We don’t take any more
Let’s get out of these chains
God bless their souls every name

CHORUS
And it’s bigger than black and white
It’s a problem with the whole way of life
It can’t change overnight, but we’ve got to start somewhere
Might as well go head on and start here
We had a hell of a year
I’ll make it count while I’m here
God is the only man I fear

VERSE THREE
They train officers to kill us
They shoot the protesters with those rubber bullets
They are ordinary people, I know they feel it
These scars too deep to heal us
What happened to Covid
Nobody remembers
it does not make sense
I’m just here to let off steam
It happened to one of your people, it’s different,
We got it, the system is nasty, just learn to choose it
Knowledge is power, I swear I’m a witness
I know i’m good
I won’t go too far, because I’m afraid they’ll catch me
I’m not afraid to admit it, some shit I can’t mention
These are the people who can, well here’s the chance
I will not take the position
But I’ll take a stand for what I believe
Must not breathe the air I breathe
You know how I bleed you can bleed
I have never been a fan of the police
But my neighborhood knows that I’m trying to keep the peace
So it’s just that I go out on the streets
March for a reason not just on GP
Our people died for us to be free
Fuck you mean
It was a dream
Now we have the power we need
They don’t want us with and that’s why they’re crazy

CHORUS 2X
It’s bigger than black and white
It’s a problem with the whole way of life
It can’t change overnight
But we have to start somewhere
Might as well get out of here
We had a hell of a year
I’ll make it count while I’m here
God is the only man I fear
