All In

Album: My Turn (2020)
Charted: 45

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Lil Baby brags about his rapid ascension to rap's premier league and the finer things in life he can now enjoy. Because he's rich and famous, Baby can mix with his sporting heroes such as James Harden, and when in New York, buy floor seats to watch the Knicks courtside. The reason for his success? Baby goes hard all year. In other words, he goes "all in."
  • At the beginning of the second verse, Baby interpolates the chorus to Blueface's 2018 hit single "Thotiana."

    Sippin' wockiana, come here, thotiana

    A "thot" is a girl who posts racy pictures of themselves on social media. Baby plays on the word "thotiana" to reference global pharmaceutical company Wockhardt ("wockiana)." Among their products is medicated cough syrup, which when mixed with soda makes lean. The recreational drug features prominently in hip-hop lyrics.
  • Baby's regular producer Quay Global supplied the instrumentation. The Atlanta producer has worked with the rapper, since his debut single "My Dawg," and Global's production for that tune got him a contract with Quality Control Music.
