A young red haired, icy mouthed, Atlanta born artist is currently gripping the style, music, and all around youth culture by the throat and making it his. Of course, that artist is none other than Lil Yachty.
From releasing the highly acclaimed track “1Night” which currently has amassed over 13 million listens on Soundcloud, to unexpectedly modeling at the forefront of Kanye West’s latest Yeezy Season 3 show alongside Young Thug and Ian Connor last month, Yachty has built quite a name for himself. What’s interesting about it all, is that his current fame was almost unintentional. Yachty wasn’t even taking music all too seriously when he ran into Ian Connor at the airport, and eventually blew up. Now, it seems as if the 18 year old has officially found his place in this (kind of) confusing world of music and modern youth culture.
Earlier this evening, Yachty released his first mixtape, reasonably titled, Lil Boat. The 14-track tape contains features from Young Thug, Quavo, Skippa Da Flippa, Burberry Perry, and plenty more. You can listen to the mixtape, in its entirety, above.
