Rapper Lil Baby was named songwriter of the year in the Wednesday unveiling of winners of the 34th annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards, held virtually today through Thursday on the performing rights organization’s social media.
Dominant plays for Lil Baby songs like “Baby,” “The Bigger Picture,” “Emotionally Scarred” and “For the Night” contributed to the honor. In celebration of his win, ASCAP will premiere an original video of the rapper performing a new version of “The Bigger Picture” Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET/1 PT on the org’s YouTube channel.
Cardi B had previously won the songwriter of the year award in 2019 and 2020, preceded by Quavo and Gucci Mane.
Congratulations to Lil Baby!
