The ‘Untrapped’ Lil Baby Documentary Is Coming On Amazon Prime Video.
The rapper stated in a statement, “I’m blessed to be able to tell my story and have people care to hear it.”
On Monday (June 3), Amazon Prime Video made the announcement that beginning on August 26, it will broadcast Karam Gill’s film Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby exclusively. The feature-length film, which was produced by Quality Films, MGX Creative, and 4PF, had its global debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday night (June 11), and was immediately followed by a performance by Lil Baby.
The documentary film Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby traces the remarkable ascent to fame of the Grammy Award-winning rapper Lil Baby. Before being captured and put in prison, Lil Baby, whose real name was Dominique Armani Jones, was a notorious figure on the streets of West Atlanta when she was a teenager.
After being released from prison in 2016, when he was 21 years old, the man found himself at a crossroads: he could either go back to the streets or give rapping a shot. After choosing the latter option and putting out a few mixtapes in the interim, the Atlanta rapper finally released his debut album.
Lil Baby said in a statement, “I’m blessed to be able to tell my story and have people want to hear it.” “This film is a real look at my journey, and if it inspires even one person to think they can get through hard things and dare to follow a dream, then it was worth every penny spent and every hour worked. My story is the story of many people, and I’m excited to tell it.
Gill made his debut as a director with the documentary G Funk (2017), which tells the unseen narrative of the creation of hip-most hop’s iconic subgenre, including the contributions of Warren G, Snoop Dogg, and Nate Dogg.
Recently, he collaborated with Brian Grazer, winner of an Academy Award in the field of producing, to create and film the documentary series Supervillain: The Making of Tekashi 6ix9ine, which was broadcast on Showtime.
In addition to this, Gill is a co-founder of the production firm and creative agency known as MGX Creative. The mission of this organization is to investigate popular culture via the use of daring and stylistic narratives.
In a statement, Gill added, “This initiative has been in the works for some years now, amid some of the most terrible periods our country has encountered.” “I couldn’t be more proud of the entire filmmaking team and the continued collaboration between Quality Films and MGX Creative to create another meaningful project that sheds light on larger scale societal issues,” the director said in an interview.
“It’s important to work, and it’s being done by some of the best in the business.” I have a lot of respect for Lil Baby since he has really beaten the odds, and I hope that his story will inspire others all around the world.
Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby examines the incredible ascent of a solitary artist and activist and investigates the structural oppression that prevents far too many people of color from partaking in the American Dream. Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby is available on Netflix.
