Released on 9 March , it made Lil Yachty a star, spawned multiple hits and further legitimised the DIY-style rap that emerged at the beginning of the decade. The first half of Lil Boat sees Yachty flex his flow, while the second half finds him crooning in AutoTune. Yachty uses his style to demarcate who is who, and, despite his glee throughout, Lil Boat is a surprisingly subtle work for the chaotic time it represents. As a title, Lil Boat was perfect. Serving two purposes at once, it created a fitting alt. While not traditional in any sense, Yachty is honest with his emotions in a way that younger generations have always been, and Lil Boat found him attempting to navigate his way through the emotionally turbulent years of his late youth. Lil Yachty was not part of some hip-hop assembly line; like other DIY pioneers before him, Yachty and his crew were making these songs at home, often in a matter of minutes.
Old heads love to hate on Yachty, but trust us. He has bars. Unlike contemporaries such as J. Lil Yachty does it too. Carly Rae Jepsen. Here, he drops his more off-kilter style and plays things relatively straight. If nothing else, he definitely out-raps Carly Rae Jepsen on this. One of the things that tends to get lost in the shuffle is that Lil Yachty has a better understanding of hip-hop genealogy than people give him credit for.
