It has been said that in life’s journey, we sometimes owe our triumphs to the help we receive from others. It is also true, bloodily, that only a few will readily acknowledge others aided their lifting.
“Out The Mud” rapper Lil Baby readily acknowledges he was aided in the early years by Gunna, himself a fine rapper. According to Lil Baby, he used to pay Gunna like $100 dollars to write his songs. Gunna taught him to rap.
Lil Baby, who’s featured on Stefflon Don‘s “Phone Down” back in June, made this revelation in a recent sit down with the guys at 16BARS in Europe.
He said Gunna was already rapping at the time. He, Lil Baby, on the other hand, was a mere dreamer with high hopes. “I kick it with him, fuck with him and then I start rapping. And he actually started helping me rap,” he said.
He said although he used to pay Gunna $100 dollars to write his songs, he never put them out. Over the years, the two have developed great musical chemistry such that most times they are co-opted together on the same track..
Polo G‘s “Pop Out Again” is one of the tracks that featured the pair.
In spite of their closeness and musical chemistry, however, Lil Baby doesn’t consider Gunna a friend. Their relationship is deeper. With the friend tag not being entertained, may one say, then, that they are brothers from different mothers?
It is clear the bond between the two is profound. They’re both glued by music, apparently. Well, what do you think?
