Now Listening To: Lil Baby - "The Bigger Picture"



Rapper Lil Baby has perhaps just dropped the song of 2020. The Atlanta-bred artist released his single "The Bigger Picture" with an official music video on June 12, showing clips of protests and summing up the current Black Lives Matter movement against racism and police brutality.

The movement was reignited after the May 25 police death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Floyd's death was caught on camera, as Derek Chauvin, a white police officer, knelt on Floyd's neck for almost nine minutes while Floyd repeatedly said "I can't breathe."

Floyd's death followed the March 13 death of EMT Breonna Taylor, who was shot and killed by police in her apartment, while she slept, when officers busted into her home during a no-knock search warrant for narcotics, in Louisville, Kentucky. No drugs were found in the apartment.

She was killed less than a month after Ahmaud Arbery, who was hunted down by white men, and shot to death while out for a jog, in a white neighborhood near Brunswick, Georgia on February 23. People in cities around the world have broken out in protests, demanding justice and change.

In his new single, rapper Lil Baby reflects on the current state of the world, where people from all walks of life have joined in on the demonstrations against the police, and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. This, during a still very active global coronavirus pandemic, that's still spreading and taking lives. Baby brings up COVID-19 in his new track, as he also contemplates the movement, and his relationship with police and his community.

It's bigger than black and white 
It's a problem with the whole way of life
It can't change overnight
But we gotta start somewhere
Might as well gon' 'head start here
We done had a hell of a year
I'ma make it count while I'm here
God is the only man I fear
