Lil Baby made sure George Floyd’s 7-year-old daughter Gianna had the best birthday celebration possible by throwing her a party along with NBA star Stephen Jackson.
It’s the first birthday she’s spending without her father, who died May 25 after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for eight minutes and 46 seconds. His death sparked worldwide Black Lives Matter protests for racial justice.
Forbes reports that Floyd’s longtime friend Jackson began planning the birthday celebration in July with other good friends of the Floyd family and Atlanta restaurant owners Ericka and William Platt. “I think I adopted another child, God put me into this position,” Jackson told Forbes. “I’m going to do the best that I can.”
