Lil Baby has established himself as one of the most popular rappers in the industry. The rapper has collaborated with a number of high profile names such has Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Rick Ross. Recently, the Atlanta native broke a Billboard chart record that stood for over 50-years.
In 2020, he released his sophomore album My Turn. The LP contained collaborations with other popular rappers, including Future, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Gunna, Moneybagg Yo, and Lil Uzi Vert. My Turn debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and stayed there for five weeks.
The album sold three million copies in the US and earned triple-platinum status. In March 2022, Billboard announced that My Turn had broken a 55-year-old record after it spent 85 weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. My Turn is the only album to remain in the top 10 for that long since the chart first debuted in 1965.
In total, My Turn has spent over 100 weeks on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Prior to Lil Baby achieving this amazing milestone, Post Malone held the record for longest-running album in the top 10 of the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
It’s been two years since My Turn‘s release, and fans are eager to get new content. It seems they won’t have to wait too long as Lil Baby has a project of his own coming down the pipeline. In February 2022, he tweeted that his album was album done, and that new music was on the way.
