An angry Lil Baby released "The Bigger Picture" in response to the social unrest arising from the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers.
The song opens with a news clip concerning the militarized police response to the peaceful protests in Minneapolis. Throughout the rest of the track, Baby references his own experiences with the unjust criminal justice system and the senselessness of violence against black Americans.
The song title does not appear in the lyrics but is alluded to in the chorus.
It's bigger than black and white It's a problem with the whole way of life
Baby goes on to admit the issues of racial inequality and police brutality "can't change overnight" but the protests and Black Lives Matter movement represent a crucial step forward.
Lil Baby took part in protests on the Atlanta streets on June 8, 2020. He is depicted on the single's cover art leading the crowd on his bicycle.
"Friends In Low Places" by Garth Brooks was written by two Nashville songwriters after a meal in a local restaurant. One of them forgot his money, but said not to worry, "I have friends in low places. I know the cook."
His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."
