It was around this time last year that Lil Baby and Foot Locker introduced their "Back to School Festival" event as a way to give back to the kids in his hometown city of Atlanta, GA, ahead of the upcoming school year. This week, the rapper and the sneaker retail chain kept the tradition going with their second annual "Back to School Festival" event.

Lil Baby took over the Foot Locker store in Atlanta's Westland Mall earlier this week to give away over $300,000 worth of sneakers and various items to over 1,500 local students. Additionally, Lil Baby and Foot Locker also partnered with Goodr, a local company whose mission is to combat food waste and end hunger, to provide meals to attendees at the event.

Prior to creating their "Back to School Festival" event, Lil Baby was spotted leaving a Foot Locker in June 2021 after buying dozens of sneakers that were reportedly given out to individuals within his old Atlanta neighborhood.
