Lil Baby season is here. After a few active years where many compared his run to that of late 2000s Lil Wayne and 2015 Future, the Quality Control artist is ready to release his third album, titled It is only me.
In a Friday, September 2, Instagram post, the “Woah” artist shared the album cover featuring her own version of Mount Rushmore. Similar to Drake’s lyrics to 2018’s “Survival,” Baby’s Rushmore shows four different iterations of the Atlanta rapper from his early days to present. Beneath the cloud-adorned structure, he sits on a rock flanked by goats, a nod to his lyrics on Drake’s 2021 record “Wants & Needs” where he says, “I’m not the GOAT but I match to description.”
His caption reads: ‘It’s only me’ 10/14/22 I know the time has come but I’m coming stronger and stronger……#worththewait,” which also references his early projects . harder than hard, 2 The Hard Way, Too hard, harder than everand his collaborative project with Gunna titled harder drops. With Baby seemingly at the height of his career, one can only wonder if using “Harder And Harder” means he’s looking to return to his early days but add a 2022 spin.
