Dominique Jones, known professionally as Lil Baby, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He is best known for his songs "Freestyle", "Yes Indeed" and "My Dawg", the latter two peaking at number 6 and 71 respectively on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Dominique Jones was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He was 2 years old when his father left the family, leaving his single mother to raise him and his 2 siblings. While he was not struggling academically, Jones would repeatedly get in trouble, resulting in him dropping out of high school in the tenth grade. In early 2012 he got charged for possession with intent to sell among other charges. His original lawyer urged him to take a 2-year plea deal, but Jones refused, and acquired a new lawyer. This new lawyer placed Jones in a special program that would only hold him for a year. While in this program, he got into an altercation with a white prisoner over racial comments. After that, Jones' sentencing was replaced with the original 2-year deal. Later in 2013, he had a charge of possession of marijuana, less than an ounce. Then in 2014, he had another charge of possession of marijuana with intent to sell among other things. After being incarcerated for 2 years, he began his rap career with 4PF (Four Pockets Full) and Quality Control Music.
In May 2018, Lil Baby released his debut studio album, Harder Than Ever, which debuted at number three on the US Billboard 200 chart. The album was supported by the singles, "Southside" and "Yes Indeed" featuring Drake, the latter peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100.
