Atlanta, GA – Lil Baby teamed up with former NBA player Stephen Jackson and restaurant owners Ericka and William Platt on Wednesday (December 16) to throw a surprise birthday party for Gianna Floyd, the daughter of George Floyd who tragically lost his life in police custody on May 25.

The Quality Control rapper funded the L.O.L dolls-themed party with profits made from “The Bigger Picture,” which was one of the biggest songs during worldwide protests following George Floyd’s killing. Gianna was celebrating her seventh birthday and the first without her father.

She wrote on Instagram, “L.o.l Surprise Birthday Party. Thank you so much @lilbaby_1 for coming and help me celebrate my 7th Birthday.”
