Rapper Lil Baby joins the Floyd family at the White House

Rapper Lil Baby on Tuesday joined George Floyd’s family in Washington, D.C., as the family pushes for the police reform act named after Floyd to be passed.

Lil Baby was seen at the presser with Floyd’s family and their attorney Ben Crump at the White House where the family met with President Biden.

 

 

Lil Baby, whose real name is Dominique Armani Jones, has close ties with the Floyd family.

Last December, he threw a surprise birthday party for Floyd’s daughter Gianna and paid for all of the expenses.

Tuesday marks one year since former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd, 46, by kneeling on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes during an arrest. 

Floyd’s family is in D.C. on the anniversary of the death to call on lawmakers to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act. 

Floyd’s death among others led to nationwide protests on social justice and police reform in the country.

Jones also released a song called “The Bigger Picture” during that time which earned him Grammy nominations for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.
