Lil Baby is one of the hottest rappers in the entire world but he’s not satisfied with only taking over the music industry. In the last few years , the 26-year-old rap artist has established himself as one of the heavy hitters of the new school,from raising his price damn-near every month to announcing his new restaurant in Atlanta. Baby is a smart man though, taking his investments to a whole other industry and exploring another career as a restaurateur.
During a Zoom conversation with XXL on Jan. 14 ,2021 , the Quality Control Records artist revealed that he’ll be opening a restaurant, with a lounge-esque vibe, in the center of Atlanta.
“Actually, I have a new restaurant and I’ma open it in Atlanta,” he tells XXL when asked what other industries he plans to explore outside of hip-hop. “It was supposed to be open by January, but we had to finish the stages, so maybe, February, March.”
The restaurant will have a menu including Southern comfort dishes. “You know, lamb chops, lobster tails, rice, stuff like that,” he went on. “A little music, alcohol. Stuff like that.”
Lil Baby hasn’t revealed the name of his new restaurant yet.

The 4 Pockets Full (4PF) head honcho joins the likes of 2 Chainz who also has restaurants in the A. Chainz actually has two Escobar Restaurant & Tappas locations: one is in the ATL while the other is in Morrow, Ga., which is in Clayton County, Ga.—about 20 minutes outside of Atlanta.
In the coming months, Lil Baby will have a lot to celebrate. He’ll be starring in his first Super Bowl halftime commercial with Rockstar Energy Drink in February. Then, on March 14, he’ll find out if he’ll be taking home any of the 2021 Grammy Awards nods he received for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance for “The Bigger Picture.
