LIL BABY NOMINATED FOR 2 GRAMMY AWARDS

NOMINATIONS INCLUDE "BEST RAP SONG" & "BEST RAP PERFORMANCE"

With a comprehensively dominant year, Lil Baby has continued his relentless run in 2020 by adding 2 Grammy nominations to his ever-expanding shrine of career-defining milestones. At the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards, Lil Baby will be in the running for "Best Rap Song" & "Best Rap Performance" for his song "The Bigger Picture" with the thrilling potential to win his first Grammy Award at age 25.

In September, his lauded album My Turn went RIAA-certified double platinum, making Lil Baby the first and only artist of 2020 to reach that mark at the time. The album is the #1 selling and #1 steaming album in the US this year with 4 Billion streams to date. His catalogue has reached 21 Billion streams globally. With his deeply moving and timely release "The Bigger Picture", he cemented his role as the indisputable, authentic voice of youth culture. His seminal performance of the track at Apple Music's Rap Life Live event was in itself a standout moment of 2020. The protest anthem reached at #1 on Urban Radio, his 7th #1 in the format.

In 2020, Lil Baby graced the cover of Rolling Stone, tied Prince and Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits, saw his February #1 release of My Turn return to the top of the Billboard 200 three months later, and spent 5 weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (tying Taylor Swift for most weeks atop the list in 2020). He was named Vevo's Top Performing Hip-Hop Artist of 2020, named MVP on Rap Caviar, and at the Second Annual Apple Music Awards he won the top award of Global Artist of the Year. He performed several of his standout tracks at the 2020 BET Awards as well as the 2020 AMA's. With such a rapid rise and an unstoppable stream of critical and commercial hits, it's clear that Lil Baby is one of the greatest and most important success stories in hip-hop. At 25, he has been one of the most dominant and critically acclaimed names in rap since his first release in 2017-but 2020 was the year he became an undeniable global star.

"...the king of his class, a rapper by whom all other emcees are measured."
- BILLBOARD

"...his best solo project to date, a mesmerizing and repeatable tour through Baby's aesthetic tendencies. If he hasn't already arrived at the highest echelon of rap, he's climbing his way there now." - BILLBOARD

"this really does feel like his turn to rule" - FORBES

"a staple of Atlanta rap for years to come." - ROLLING STONE
