Janet aka Lil Baby, whose album title reflects her dedication to her craft, has been developing and perfecting her immense, wide-ranging talent since elementary school. That's when she started entering talent shows and became determined to become an entertainer. Singers were cool. Dancers were great. But she looked up to the total packages, entertainers like Mary j and Michael Jackson. 'People like that are the ones that influenced me,' says the singer, whose passion equals her talent. 'They weren't just singers. They had the all-around package and I feel that's really important for an artist these days. In order to sell records, you've got to be an artist, a star, a performer. You've got to have all those elements.' Lil Baby then takes it up-tempo with the club hit 'MAKE A MOVE' 'I'm a die-hard dancer and it was important that we have some up-tempo songs on there so that I can give the people a good show,' she says. 'People that love to dance will love these songs.' Born and raised in Houston,TX, Lil Baby gravitated toward music and entertaining before she hit her teens. She started singing when she was 4 and decided to become an entertainer after seeing the attention lavished on her. 'When everybody else was going to junior prom, I was getting ready for a show,' she recalls. 'I actually performed at the ceremony for my junior prom. I was infatuated with the stage.' Lil Baby soon joined a local group, but quickly realized that she was better suited for life as a solo act. It was a pivotal point in her career. 'I was the youngest in the group and I had my own ideas of what I wanted to do as an artist,' she says. Lil Baby then spent most of her time on developing her own talents. She worked on refining her craft, writing songs, entering contests and performing as often as possible. She became obsessed with pursuing her musical aspirations 'My family was never behind me so i had to do things on my own' says the singer but that didn't stop her 'I'm going to continue to grind until i make noise in the business and even then i'm not going to stop' 'I'm going to let people know that i'm here to stay'.
