Discussing the situation, Lil Baby says he had time to think about what happened. He stated, “I know what happened now that I done thought about it. I got locked up like Thursday night, and I had a show Saturday.” He continued, “I’m like if I don’t get out Friday, I’m gonna get out Monday. I ain’t trying to miss my show on Saturday.”
After receiving calls and texts asking if he was OK, he was adamant that he was not. “I’m like ‘I know y’all see me going to jail.’ They like ‘You good?’ Like nah n***a, I’m not good!” Lil Baby continued, “I’m in this b***h tripping. I went to jail a lot of times, right? But they speak English. So, this like my first time going to jail and I’m like a kid.”
He also addresses how the incident gave him a different perspective on his rap career. “The whole Paris experience let me know I got to get bigger overseas,” he said. “Not saying to not go to jail for breaking the law, but for the police to know who I am.”
