Lil Baby Enlists Young Thug for “Rider”
Lil Baby is a new artist on the scene with some big names behind him. The MC is already being managed by Coach K and P's Solid Foundation (they also run Quality Control Music) and he's got the support of Young Thug, who appears on the rapper's new song "Rider" produced by Earl the Pearl. XXL is exclusively premiering the track, and you can hear it below.
"Me and Slime were at the studio just working and I went in there to go do the song," Lil Baby told XXL. "I was originally just gonna do it myself, then he walked right in the booth after I came out and jumped on it."
Lil Baby takes the lead on the track before handing things over to Young Thug. The "Pick Up the Phone" rhymer contorts his voice in unique ways for his latest guest verse following a monster appearance on Drake's More Life and Mike WiLL Made-It's Ransom 2.
"I got my weave from Jamaica, Sean Paul/Tryna be rich niggas hating on all y'all/Stayed down in this law, we get paid off/Big homie taught me if it's a plug don't run off," Thugger raps.
The track will appear on Lil Baby's upcoming mixtape Perfect Timing. The project features guest appearances by Lil Yachty, Duke, Young Scooter and more. It might be the start of something special for Lil Baby, as Thugger and Gucci Mane have both expressed interest in signing the rapper.
