Lil Baby was born Dominique Armani Jones on December 3, 1994, in Atlanta, Georgia. His father left when Lil Baby was 2 years old, and he was raised by his single mother. He grew up with two sisters and dropped out of Booker T. Washington High School during his freshman year. In 2012, Lil Baby was arrested on several charges, including possession with intent to sell. His lawyer tried to convince him to take a two-year plea deal, so Lil Baby hired a new lawyer who got him into a program that would just hold him for a year. While taking part in this program, he got in a fight with a prisoner who made racial remarks, and Lil Baby then had to serve the original two-year deal. In 2013, he was charged with marijuana possession, and the following year, he was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell. Lil Baby began his rap career after two years of incarceration, with Quality Control Music and his own label, 4PF (4 Pockets Full).

Lil Baby released the studio album "Harder Than Ever" on May 18, 2018, and it featured the Gold single "Southside" and the 6x Platinum single "Yes Indeed." He then released the mixtapes "Drip Harder" (with Gunna) in October and "Street Gossip" in November. "Drip Harder" went Platinum and "Street Gossip" went Gold; both mixtapes reached the top 10 on the "Billboard" 200 chart, and "Drip Harder's" singles, "Drip Too Hard" (with Gunna) and "Close Friends," went 9x Platinum and 4x Platinum, respectively.

Twelve songs from the album made it onto the "Billboard" Hot 100 chart. In June 2020, Lil Baby released the protest song "The Bigger Picture" in the wake of the George Floyd protests. He donated the song's proceeds to Black Lives Matter, The National Association of Black Journalists, The Bail Project, and Breonna Taylor's attorney.
