Lil Baby is a 25 year old hip-hop rap artist who grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. Being from Atlanta the southern type of hip-hop is relatively shown and contributes at a high lyrical speed and taste. Lil Baby was incarcerated for two years and shortly after his release, he with the help of fellow rapper Young Thug, released his first mixtape, “Perfect Timing”. This is what set everything off for Lil Baby and he began to gather attention really fast. Shortly after his second mixtape dropped with his famous hits, “My Dawg” & “Freestyle”. These songs really set him over the bar and Lil Baby made his name for himself. In 2018, he dropped a classic hit album with Gunna and has now become a high end name in music and one who will be around for a really long time. If I were to rate this album I would give it a 9 out of 10 because it is overall just so great all around. Lil Baby is in the prime of his career and what better way for him to run off with it than to drop “My Turn” in the beginning of 2020. Every song on here delivers and something people, even yourself might be slapping really often.
“Sum 2 Prove” is the thirteenth song on “My Turn” and is possibly the best song on the entire album. The song starts off instantly on a really high paced beat and Lil Baby matches up his flow with it entirely. This makes the song super catchy. With it being the best song on the album it also the most inspirational with Lil Baby rapping about nothing but motivation, from things like “I might be second but I’ll never be last” & “Lately I’ve been in my bag”.
“Catch The Sun” is the fifteenth track on the album. It is a really grooving and vibing type of song. It was actually featured in the movie, “Queen & Slim”. It still keeps that Lil Baby flow with bursts of high speed rap but overall it becomes really vibey and something that you can play in the car when you are by yourself. It will most likely end up being your favorite song to listen to while relaxing.
My Turn was an exciting album from Lil Baby and most definitely met expectations if not exceeded them. Plenty of fans around has been wanting him to drop a project and more music for them to enjoy. This album did not disappoint and Lil Baby as most would say, went hard on this album. If you are a big time Lil Baby fan I would recommend listening to the album and other artists like Gunna, Moneybagg Yo & Lil Snupe. Overall if you like hip-hop/rap in general or Lil Baby, I would recommend you listen to “My Turn” for yourself because it is an absolute must and see what you think about it.
