Looking to Book Lil Yachty?
Combining feel-good positivity, druggy weirdness, and wild ATLian flair into a style he termed “bubblegum trap,” rapper Lil Yachty scored his first platinum single with “One Night” (2016). Within two years, he had a pair of Top Ten albums with Teenage Emotions (2017) and Lil Boat 2 (2018), and a Grammy nomination via ‘s “Broccoli,” on which he was featured. Between the release dates of those proper albums for the label, Yachty’s approach shifted from a reliance upon willfully off-key singing and lackadaisical rhyming to that of a comparatively traditional MC, albeit with his irreverent sense of humor still gamely displayed. His style has continued to evolve with his following recordings, including Lil Boat 3 (2020), his fourth LP.
