Ive gotten a chance to watch quite a few interviews with Lil Yachty, and I have to say I’ve be really impressed with how he seems to stick to his guns on what he wants as a artist. I remember him going through a bit of back and forth with veteran rapper Joe Budden and one of the things that seemed to be evident was no matter what he was asked he felt he had his way of doing music and everything to come with it and no one could change that.
This new generation of hip hop may not be for everyone but one thing is for sure. If you are looking for diversity you can find it in a record like “Forever Young” from Lil Yachty. Yes he uses the autotune effect that has been used a lot in hip hop as of late, but his selection of using production with a Caribbean sound and his delivery on this record is for sure worth giving a really good listen to.
