Lil Baby Talks Young Thug & Gunna
Lil Baby also discussed his friends Young Thug and Gunna, currently behind bars while awaiting trial on RICO charges. He said though he talks to Thugger “often,” he tries not to keep it at the forefront of his mind.
“If I think about it too much, I get deep into it. It’s the fact that I know the situation of where we are and what we’ve overcome. I know them personally. I know what they’re doing and what they are not to a certain extent.”
He added, “It’s really scary” as he considers himself “in that same position.” The Atlanta rapper said the case has “by default,” made him more conscious of his lyrics. “ We’re rappers. We’re used to saying a lot of stuff that’s not true, that didn’t happen. It’s art. It’s your imagination,” Lil Baby said. “You can go as far as you want to take it. But now, I have to be very mindful, because I know as much as people who are listening to what I’m saying is a critic.”
