 "I Honestly Didn't Know What A Humanitarian Was," Lil Baby Said In His Speech

At the annual Music in Action Awards dinner held by the Black Music Action Coalition on Thursday night at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Lil Baby received the Quincy Jones Humanitarian Award. The rapper from Atlanta was recognised for his work on issues of racial and social justice. 

Over 3,000 neighbourhood children received bags, school supplies, haircuts, and other necessities when Baby held its third "Back to School Fest in Atlanta" festival earlier this year.

In addition, Baby has partnered with Atlanta restaurant "Lemont Bradley" to create a $150,000 "My Turn" scholarship programme at her former high school and offer 100 jobs. Lil Baby remarked during her speech.

"I honestly didn't know what a humanitarian was, but when I looked and started reading, I recognised that I am really a humanitarian. "I simply want to express my gratitude to everyone here since nothing we aim to accomplish can be accomplished by a single individual.

All of us must come together and remain united. Lil Baby made a musical comeback on Friday with the release of his most recent single, "The World Is Yours to Take."

The song was released in advance of the rapper's upcoming October 14 release of his third studio album, "It's Only Me." Recently, Lil Baby matched Elvis Presley's record for Billboard Hot 100 hits. The Hot 100 hits ranking places Baby and Presley eighth, behind artists like Drake (278), Lil Wayne (183), Future (152), Kanye West (141), and Nicki Minaj (124).
