Prime Video dropped off the official trailer for Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby, the upcoming documentary exploring the life of the Grammy-winning rapper.
The preview includes several interviews with notable figures in Lil Baby's life, including Drake, Young Thug and Quality Control CEO Pierre Thomas, among others, each of whom provides comments on the Atlanta rapper's impact. Later, Lil Baby himself provides context to his story, revealing that his outlook on life changed after he was arrested and sent to prison.
“After I got locked up again, my perspective changed,” he says. “America has a system in place and it’s designed for us to fail. It’s a trap. I couldn’t go back to prison, [so] I became an artist with something to say and people to stand for.”
“I’m blessed to be able to tell my story and have people care to hear it,” Lil Baby previously said in a statement. “This film is a real look into my journey, and if it inspires even one person to believe that they can get through hard stuff and dare to follow a dream, then it was worth every penny spent and hour worked. My story is many people’s story and I’m excited to share it.”
The documentary, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, is produced by Lil Baby, Pierre “P” Thomas, Kevin “Coach K” Lee, Karam Gill, Daniel Malikyar, Andrew Primavera and Blase Biello.
Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby premieres on August 26 on Prime Video. Watch the trailer above.
