Beats from scratch: How to produce a beat like Lil Baby

lil baby beat

Hailing from the hip hop capital of the south, Atlanta, GA, Lil Baby only learned how to rap a few years ago. Yet today, he has forged a relentless path to the top, spending four weeks at No.1 on the Billboard charts midway through last year – and that was just the start.

Lil Baby’s meteoric rise has got lots to do with his charisma, collaborations and his activism against systemic racism in the nation. But above all that, it’s his music that has won him his millions of fans worldwide.

Today, we’ll be showing you how to create a beat in the style of Lil Baby. A beat that has roots from the original Atlanta trap sound, featuring deep 808 basslines, hard drums and melodic hooks.

Learn how to put together a Lil Baby style beat right here on BandLab’s web Mix Editor.

Fork the beat we created in the video to create your own Lil Baby beat.
