One of the best babies in the game right now is Lil Baby, without a doubt. Over the years, Drake has been known to get so hype about a new artist that a collaboration with them turns into a massive hit. That’s what happened with “Yes Indeed,” his 2018 collaborative single with Lil Baby, although the Atlantan had already been impressing those in the know with cuts like “Freestyle.” The Atlanta rapper gained plenty of buzz off songs like “My Dawg” from his 2017 tape Harder Than Hard. While there’s some Young Thug influence in his flow (which makes sense, considering Thug was an early collaborator), Baby rides the pocket in a unique way and spits with ease. In turn, he’s finding all kinds of chart success. Not only did his debut album, 2018’s Harder Than Ever, debut at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, but the aforementioned “Yes Indeed” climbed to No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100. His collaborative album with Gunna, Drip Harder (which featured another Drake collab, “Never Recover”), hit No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and drew loads of critical praise. Add to that some roles in films (like MTV’s How High 2), as well as lucrative brand deals, and Lil Baby is one baby you can’t sleep on. Plus, he has one of the best baby lines of all time: “Wah-wah-wah, bitch I’m the baby.” —khal
