We are officially Back Outside! Hence the name of Lil Baby’s current tour with Lil Durk. If there’s one thing you can count on from these two artists, it’s the fact that they’re always going to put on a show. With Baby hailing from Atlanta and Durk from Chicago, both hail a devout following and undeniable influence on the rap game.
On Friday, September 24th, Baby and Durk took the main stage at Staples Center in Los Angeles in front of a sold-out arena. Coi Leray kicked things off on a high note, especially with her newest release titled “Twinnem” which hit a million views in just a few days… but crowd-goers could hardly anticipate what was to come. This is the city of Angels, which means special guests are in order.

Baby’s impressive catalog of hits could have carried the show solo, but you know he had some tricks up his sleeve. 42 Dugg popped out to perform their standout collaborative tracks “We Paid” and “Grace,” while Roddy Ricch came out to do his hits “The Box” and “High Fashion.” Soon after, Chris Brown blessed the stage, performing his radio cut “Go Crazy.”
What was the grand finale? The Queen Barbie herself, Nicki Minaj. Entering the scene with her husband and baby behind her, you could barely hear her on the mic because fans were cheering so loud. She proceed to perform “Seeing Green” and Bia’s “Whole Lotta Money (Remix),” turning the concert into a full-blown function.
Lil Baby ended his set with his Black Lives Matter-inspired single “The Bigger Picture,” effortlessly reminding folks of what’s really important and how we can all come together to push for change.
