Baby received a proclamation from the Atlanta City Council on Sunday in celebration of “his successful career and his generous philanthropy.”
The rapper shared a series of photos from the ceremony and expressed his gratitude:
Lil Baby received the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award at Black Music Action Coalition’s second annual Music in Action Awards Gala in October in honor of his contributions to racial and social justice. He previously donated $1.5 million of the proceeds from his 2020 hit “The Bigger Picture” to help underserved communities, and established a $150,000 “My Turn” scholarship program at his alma mater, Booker T. Washington High School.
Earlier this year, Baby hosted the third annual Back to School Fest in Atlanta, which provides backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, and other essentials to over 3,000 local children. He also partnered with friend and restaurateur Lemont Bradley to create an initiative aimed at employing 100 people, especially those under the age of 21, at one of three restaurants in the Atlanta area.
