Lil Baby Presents His First Music Video Shot At The World Cup

Lil Baby Presents His First Music Video Shot At The World Cup

Lil Baby released a motivational song in celebration of the end of another great World Cup, which saw Argentina leave Qatar as the victorious team.

Baby and Tears For Fears, whose 1985 smash “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” – which Nas famously sampled – is sampled on the song, released “The World Is Yours To Take” on Sunday (December 18).

“I’m by far one of the hardest workers/Real firm believer in Practice make perfect/You can gather all the water, stay thirsty/Took a lot to get us here, we broke curses,” the 4PF boss raps.

On the song—which was made in collaboration with Budweiser—and in a cinematic video shot by Director X that follows the “Drip Too Hard” rhymer across Qatar, Lil Baby extols the virtues of hard work.

“I’m excited to make history with Budweiser and close out the 2022 FIFA World Cup with this unforgettable video,” Baby added in a statement. “Working with Director X and the amazing people from around the globe, we’re celebrating what it means to bring the world together and inspire people to chase those dreams.”

The Atlanta native is far from home as he travels through the sandy desert, drives dune buggies, rides in boats, performs on stages, and strolls through stadiums that are home to the best soccer players in the world.

Even some supplementary material from the making of the film, with Director X in charge, is available on Lil Baby’s Instagram.

Lionel Messi scored two goals to help Argentina upset France on penalties and win the World Cup, which had eluded them for years.

Lil Baby had another successful year in 2022, sharing the year’s record for Billboard Hot 100 entries with Drake. With his third solo album, It’s Only Me, Baby advanced to the next level, becoming the third solo artist overall and the youngest to place an entire album on the charts.

The 4PF rapper Dominique “Lil Baby” Jones received his own holiday in November, with November 13 now being formally recognized as Dominique “Lil Baby” Jones Day. The Atlanta City Council presented a proclamation to the 27-year-old hitmaker, who was born and raised in the Oakland City section of Atlanta.

Lil Baby was honored for his “generous” humanitarian endeavors, which included the establishment of his Four the People Foundation, as well as his successful hip-hop career and influence as a “musical ambassador” for Atlanta.
