Lil Baby's Back-to-School Fest came just weeks after Lil Baby teamed up with restaurateur Lemont Bradley for a special initiative that aims to create 100 jobs for young people in Atlanta.
The partnership offers employment opportunities at Bradley’s various establishments in the area — Clutch Restaurant, Auto Spa Bistro and Eco Car Spa — such as bartender, waiter and line cook vacancies.
“We are looking to give out 100 jobs to teenagers and young adults in the metro-Atlanta,” Baby and Bradley said in a joint statement. “With the crime rate surrounding scams, robbery, and even murder being so high, we are looking to provide a positive outlet and revenue stream to those who are looking for an income.”
They continued: “We are so excited about this initiative. Of course, we are looking forward to helping boost the city’s economy, but we are really focused on lowering the city’s crime rate.”
