“This project has been in the works for several years now, during some of the most difficult times our country has faced. I couldn’t be prouder of the entire filmmaking team and the continued collaboration between Quality Films and MGX Creative to create another meaningful project that sheds light on larger societal issues. Lil Baby is someone who truly defied the odds, and I hope his story can bring positivity into our world.”

Following this, Amazon Prime dropped a trailer of what fans can expect from the film. One clip in particular highlights Lil Baby’s relationship with his estranged father.

He says, 

“Family is more important to me than anything. I don’t ever see myself leaving my kids. I don’t want to be a holiday dad and not just talk to you. My dad kinda stayed out of town. He was like a. I see him now and then, a couple of times a year. I can’t really say to this day the situation he and my mama had. So, I don’t just have the father-son relationship that I would want, or I feel like I should have had.”

The My Turn musician adds, 

My son asks me stuff like that. Like ‘you used to do this with your daddy?’ And my answer is like ‘no.’ I want him to understand that everybody don’t be having that growing up. I ain’t have it. He tells me that I want to do everything I do. Like ‘I wanna do what you do.’ That means the most to me, like, I take that sh*t seriously.”
