Lil Yachty release new song called “Oh Yeah” wasn’t going to blow up. From the very first moment you hear his playful honk of a voice and lay eyes upon his licorice-red hair, he’s impossible to ignore—a garish, flashing sign on the side of the highway that reads, “very unexpected shit ahead.” Rarely do today’s breakout stars leave you awestruck with breathtaking bars on the first go-round; instead, they catch your attention by sounding like nothing else that precedes them (perhaps they even sound like what older rappers actively tried not to sound like).
elevation to a status that doesn’t require people to know your work to know who you are—comes with its prices, its “Young Thug is gay,” “lol Fetty Wap’s eye,” “Lil Uzi Vert ruins ‘Bad & Boujee,'” or “Playboi Carti only does ad-libs” jokes, and more than anyone else, Yachty has borne the brunt of those in the last year. “Oh Yeah” Everything he stands for has been picked apart and critiqued by rap listeners (mostly of a certain age). His positive attitude was recently mocked and scrutinized by Joe Budden.
