It’s Real
Verified purchase
Oftentimes docs will claim to be real. Eye opening even. After a few minutes in you discover the opposite to be true. That isn’t the case here. Although I’d heard Lil Baby’s music. I still wasn’t that familiar. And didn’t know much about him. My first real glimpse into who he was as an artist was the BET performance he did with Kirk Franklin. The song was “We Win”. Baby seemed so connected to the moment. It didn’t come off slick. Or overly rehearsed. It felt real. I’ve watched it several times since. Untrapped is the same. Nothing feels forced or disingenuous. It’s about an artist telling a story. And for once the story is actually true. Including all of the things that led up to this moment. Rare in hip hop. Or any genre for that matter. Loved seeing the archival footage. As well as the home videos from Baby’s childhood. Not only does it put things in perspective. It gives real insight into what it means to be seen as only black in this country. Instead of American. Lil Baby embodies that dream. Simply by being himself.

POWERFUL!!
Verified purchase
This documentary was powerful, gritty, and real. I loved that he shot most of it in the neighborhood so we can see the environment he came from and how hard it is to survive let alone become a mega superstar. I was a fan but now I'm in awe. I love seeing him be a family man and a smart and conscious black man. Him shining a light on the world we live in and his first-hand account of the social injustices in this world. The part where he took his babies to George Floyd's daughter's birthday party was amazing and he's talking to his son about it telling him they are going to support George's daughter (I love that). I wonder what the lady in the store (where he remembered her son) thought after finding out exactly who he was and seeing herself in the doc.

Lil Baby is guniuine
Verified purchase
I like Lil Baby but the documentary is pushing the "hate and blame white people for all our problems" racism that is popular today. In one sentence they're telling their story of crime, murder, and drug dealing; the next line is the police are after us for no reason. Afterwards, it's how poor they are one day and then making thousands of dollars a per day the next. All while receiving free food, housing, and health care. Must be nice to sit around all day doing nothing and still receive everything every one else has to work to get.

These people are their own problem. The world will treat you accordingly based on your behavior.

Inspirational and an immediate classic for hip-hop / music documentaries.
Verified purchase
I have been anticipating the release of the documentary for about 2 months now and it has not disappointed. Lil Baby is an artist I respect and can relate to. I noticed his genius as his lyrics became more profound. I think the documentary captured glimpses of that. I hope all that watch this get inspired. More so, the bigger picture being that no matter where you start or what industry you find yourself in, pursue it with purpose and passion, be curious and ask questions, and learn from your experiences. As Coach K said "your sacrifice will be your breakthrough".

MOTIVATIONAL | INSPIRATIONAL | RAW
Verified purchase
I'm not the type to write reviews but after watching this I gained a higher level of respect for Lil Baby. Lot of the times we don't see what it takes for people to make it to where they are, but the level of discipline, consistency, and hard work he had to put in to make it to where he is is admirable and it was all shown in this documentary.

If your an artist/creator this will put a battery in your back and make you want to go above and beyond to succeed. Highly Recommended!

A Must-Watch, Empowering Story That Needed To Be Told
Verified purchase
One minute in, and I was hooked. Lil Baby is one of my favorite artists, and it's a rewarding thing for any supporter to see the more intimate, introspective moments that shaped the music we've all come to revere and quite literally learn all of the lyrics to. I have to give big props to the production team for delineating the socio-political powers that shaped Lil Baby's life and trajectory. It's the key to understanding how meteoric Baby's rise truly is, and because of the excellent storytelling, you come to appreciate his success all the more. There's so much to take away from this documentary, but one thing that really stood out were the people who always believed in Lil Baby. Hearing Young Thug talk about Baby's talent and trying to keep him away from the street life and Quality Control CEO Pierre "P" Thomas motivating Baby to bet on music really resonated with me. "Untrapped" proves that when we challenge and empower one another to be the greatest version of ourselves, the sky's the limit.

Unearthing Hidden Treasure, Humility & Truth
Verified purchase
During my search to find something to watch, I came across this name that I've heard multiple times in my vehicle as my son removes my device from Ford sync to add his for music preference of course! I had no idea that Lil' Baby was from an area I resided in prior to having children. Most parents, along with most of Amerikkka, are reluctant to entertain the idea of understanding truth. Viewing this brought back vivid memories of the West End area; from Westlake Marta Station to West End Mall near Lee St. It was tremendous to have him share truth. I especially enjoyed his humbling experience about the Grammy situation. This just proves that there is so much hidden treasure in the not-so-glamourous parts of the ATL waiting to be unearthed!
Thanks for sharing! I cannot wait to watch again with my son!
