“I got 1.5 million dollars to donate off of “Bigger Picture “ I want the money to go we’re it’s needed,” the rapper tweeted on Tuesday. “I don’t want to donate to just any organization but I will be letting my fans kno exactly we’re the money goes.”
He continued, tweeting, “Lawyers ,Bonds , Play Grounds , Jobs , youth activities , things that WE can really benefit off of.”
Following all of the turbulence throughout 2020, Lil Baby wrote “The Bigger Picture,” which gives his perspective on how we can all make the world a better place. While this seems to be something the rapper is comfortable with, this thought-provoking song showed fans a side of Lil Baby that they had never seen before.
“The Bigger Picture” rose to the top of the charts and ended up being nominated for the Best Rap Performance award at the 2021 Grammys. Because the song has been so successful, Baby made a whole lot of money from it, which is why he wants to donate said profits to a good cause. He hasn’t announced what organization he’ll be sharing the proceeds with, but as he said in his tweets, he plans to tell his fans exactly where the money is going.
