Back in 2020, Billboard reported that My Turn was the most consumed album of that year.
In a recent interview with XXL, Lil Baby said that while he considers himself a “rap star,” he feels the term “superstar” is more fitting.
“I think the qualities of a superstar is like a strong fan base,” he said. “A sustainable amount of time ’cause you could be hot like a one-hit-wonder hot, like superstar hot. It could go quick. So, a different time bracket. I would say your appearance, the way you carry yourself to the way you perform. The type of things you perform at or the type of places you will perform at and the money that you get.”
