Rapper Lil Baby has opened up about his recent arrest in Paris.
“The whole Paris experience let me know I got to get bigger overseas,” he told Billboard. “Not saying to not go to jail for breaking the law, but for the police to know who I am.”
The rapper was taken into police custody in Paris on suspicion of carrying marijuana and released that same day.
He also talked about the arrest to Icebox.
“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 said. “I’m like, if I don’t get out Friday, I’m gonna get out Monday. I ain’t tryin’ to miss my show on Saturday.”
“I’m talking, the whole world’s texting, DMing me,” said Lil Baby. “I know y’all see me going to jail, they like, ‘You good?’ Like nah n*gga, I’m not good! I went to jail a lot of times, right? But they speak English.”
