Rylo Rodriguez also accompanied Baby to grab some snacks.

You never know when you might run into your favorite celebrity at a supermarket or department store. Moreover, fans just ran into Lil Baby and Rylo Rodriguez stopping by Target, seemingly for some snacks with their crew. In the short clip that surfaced on social media, you can see some encouraged fans circling around the Atlanta MC and his entourage, while they seem to be mostly leaving him alone. Furthermore, celebrities- rappers especially- might find themselves in a position where they're surrounded by a mob and can't even move two feet without someone in their face.

Still, the 28-year-old is very appreciative of his fanbase, and wanted to give them something back this summer. In an exciting development, Lil Baby recently announced a summer tour with the aforementioned Rylo, GloRilla, The Kid LAROI, Gloss Up, and Hunxho. The "It's Only Us" trek will last from late June to mid-late September, and will hit cities all across the United States. Given Baby's elevated profile and star power, it wouldn't be surprising to see additional dates come through. Regardless, tickets went live on Thursday (April 13), so snag yours quick if you want to hear "Freestyle" live- because you need to.

Other than that, there are plenty of other reasons to be excited for the 4PF leader's next move that go beyond his regular career movement. For example, rumors recently surfaced of a collaborative album dropping soon between Lil Baby and none other than Drake. Said speculation came mostly from Black Coffee, a producer who worked on Drizzy's Honestly, Nevermind who said that the duo is working together on a full-length project. That's very promising news for fans of "Wants and Needs" and other of their collabs, which usually seem to bring out the best in each other.

Meanwhile, Lil Baby continues to reap the benefits of his successful career up to this point. Recently, the RIAA officially gifted him a platinum plaque for his 2022 album It's Only Me, signifying the project selling over 1 million album equivalent units. While many point to an inconsistent track record, all of Baby's career moves point to a continued spot among the upper echelon on contemporary hip-hop. For that and many more reasons, let a man shop in peace when you spot him at a Target. Also, for the latest updates and news on Lil Baby, log back into HNHH.
