Lil Baby shared that he had recorded a few songs with Canadian rap sensation Drake at a studio belonging to one James Harden.
By now, many of us will have heard of the friendship between Harden and the Atlanta-based rapper. Lil Baby first burst into the spotlight after being incarcerated for possession of marijuana with intent to sell. After his release from prison, Baby released his first mixtape called Perfect Timing.
After 2-3 years of building his rep around the hip hop circuit, Lil Baby had his breakthrough with the song ‘Yes Indeed’. This track, which also features Drake, peaked at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Baby won the Best New Artist at the BET Hip Hop Awards in 2019, and it has all been onwards and upwards from there for the 26-year-old.
Lil Baby discloses how he recorded music with Drake at James Harden’s studio
In a new interview with Billboard, Baby revealed that he and Drake have a handful of songs together that have yet to be released:
“Me and Drake got a lot of songs together, right. It just so happened that one of the songs I recorded was at James [Harden’s] studio. I ain’t delete the songs out the computer so the songs were still [there]. James probably got the team at the house and they just listening in the studio.”
“So when I seen [Boogie’s tweet], I was like, ‘Damn. How did he hear this song before?’ [Laughs] I was like, ‘James you got some basketball players in there?’ That’s how that came out. I don’t even know the song he heard, honestly,”
“I’m telling Meek we gotta go and drop this song. It’s a piece of me, man. Meek already had the song at James Harden’s house. Like I’m saying, he left it on the computer. I was just listening to it and I said I’m gonna get on here. I just got on it.”
