A Foot Locker in Lil Baby's native Atlanta was reportedly cleaned out of shoes by the rapper recently in an effort to give back to his home community.
This clip went viral showing Baby and a long line of employees walking out of the store with bags on bags.
Living up to his reputation as "The Hero," the 26-year-old then handed out the fresh kicks to community members, including children. Baby grew up in Atlanta's Oakland City neighborhood, the same hood that shaped rapper and activist Killer Mike.
Feeling inspired, Baby later promised his 16 million IG followers that he's going to return home to "save my community."
He explained, "Buying shoes ain't what I mean by saving community or giving back !! That was some s*** I did cause I seen a lot of them had on flip flops. When I say save community I mean centers, programs, jobs. You can't imagine the s*** I don't post …"
This kind of charitable attitude is something Baby has embodied more and more since delivering the Grammy-nominated social justice anthem "The Bigger Picture" a year ago. He revealed he made $1.5 million from the song in Nov. 2020, adding he wanted the profit "to go where it's needed."
He used a portion of the funds to buy over 1,000 coats for people in need in Birmingham, Alabama, a neighboring state to Georgia. That's love!
