Lil Baby Honored With His Own “Lil Baby” Day In Hometown Atlanta 

In his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, Lil Baby has received one of the greatest awards.

On Sunday (November 13), the 4PF rapper was given his own day in the city, with the day being officially designated as Dominique "Lil Baby" Jones Day.

At a special ceremony on Sunday, the 27-year-old hitmaker, who was born and raised in Atlanta's Oakland City area, got a proclamation from the Atlanta City Council.

Lil Baby's tremendous Hip Hop career and effect as a "musical ambassador" for Atlanta, as well as his "generous" humanitarian endeavors, including the founding of his Four the People Foundation, were noted in the proclamation.

Among those who praised Baby in the comments section were fellow Atlanta rapper Ludacris and Atlanta Hawks player Trae Young.

The award is only the most recent feather in Lil Baby's crown. Since making his debut in 2017, the Atlanta native has collected an incredible prize collection that includes three BET Hip Hop Awards, one MTV Video Music Award, and a single Grammy for his participation on Kanye West's "Hurricane."

Baby was named ASCAP's Songwriter of the Year for the second year in a row this summer, while also earning the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award at the 2022 Black Music Action Coalition Gala.

“I honestly didn’t know what a humanitarian was, but as I looked into it and started reading, I understand that I’m actually humanitarian,” he said while accepting the latter.

“I just want to say that I appreciate everybody in here because nothing that we doing or trying to do can be done by one person. It’s gonna take all of us to stick together and stay together.”

However, Lil Baby adds to his adorned portfolio. In October, the rapper released his much-anticipated sophomore album It's Only Me, which featured Future, Young Thug, Nardo Wick, and others.
