In school, Lil Baby would often get into trouble, but not in his academics. Eventually, he dropped out of Booker T. Washington High School during his ninth grade.
In 2012, Lil Baby got charged for possession with intent to sell. He was also accused of a few other charges. His lawyer wanted him to take a two-year plea deal, but he refused. He then hired a new lawyer who placed him in a special program that would only hold him for a year.
While serving his one-year program, Lil Baby got involved in a dispute with a white prisoner over racial comments. Soon, his sentence was replaced with the original two-year deal after he was found to be in possession of marijuana.
Lil Baby was arrested again in 2014, and this time again, he was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to sell. He served two years and then entered into the music career after he got out.
Like everyone, Lil Baby never made his fortune official, so every site estimates the number when it comes to Baby's net worth. So, the actual financial figure of Baby is still unknown to the world; however, The Success Bug thinks he holds an impressive net worth of $4 million as of 2022.
