Atlanta’s young weirdo-rap underground moves at a furious pace, and its newest hero is Lil Yachty, a young red-braided sing-rapper whose default setting is a zonked-out singsong falsetto. Even if you can wrap your head around someone like iLoveMakonnen, Yachty’s whole sound is a tough thing to figure out, especially if you’re older than, say, 25. Nevertheless, he’s on the rise right now, having scored a viral hit with “1Night” and worked as a model at the Madison Square Garden fashion show where Kanye West unveiled The Life Of Pablo. Today, Yachty released his new mixtape Lil Boat, and it’s got appearances from Quavo and Young Thug. Give it a listen below, via Noisey.
