By Joe Coscarelli. ATLANTA — Between the summer of , when the Atlanta rapper Lil Baby got out of prison on drug and gun charges, and the end of , when he solidified himself as a formidable presence in hip-hop, he released seven full-length bodies of music, resulting in a pile of smash singles that have gone platinum a combined 12 times over. All told, songs by Lil Baby, who had never rapped before his two-year incarceration, have been streamed more than 11 billion times around the world.

Balancing flash and restrained grace was something Lil Baby, born Dominique Jones, learned from his neighborhood notoriety before music, when he was known as a local hustler and dice aficionado before committing to rap for a safer income stream.
