Lil Baby’s It’s Only Us lands in Philly

Lil Baby – Wells Fargo – Philadelphia 08.29.23

The people were out to represent and welcome Lil Baby and friends to south Philly on Tuesday night. Altogether five performing artists and DJ Champ (@djchamp00) locked down the Wells Fargo Center for nearly four hours to entertain the twenty thousand people who packed the house.

The evening turned out to be a true showcase of Lil Baby with some amazing opening performances by GloRilla, Rylo Rodriguez, Gloss Up, and Hunxho. The I.O.U. tour, or It’s Only Us, is in support of Lil Baby’s third studio album “It’s Only Me”, released in October 2022.

Lil Baby’s ascent has been extremely rapid considering his debut release was just over three years ago. Originally from Atlanta, he has a great maturity to his songs with often touching and reflective lyrics drawing on his personal experiences. All of which was on full display, both from his performance and from the crowd who chanted every word throughout the show.

The songs transitioned seamlessly between multiple stages as Lil Baby and the dancers moved in, out, around, and at times above the audience. It made the show seem a lot more intimate than most performances at a venue that size.

The Atlanta MC ran through several of his radio hits, album staples, and for those paying close attention cuts from his mixtapes that launched him onto the music scene back in 2018. This tour is a culmination of his rising success and with many more dates all up and down the east coast there will be more opportunities to see this amazing performer.
