THE B-SIDE
Lil Yachty (Quality Control/Motown/Capitol)
5/10/17

WHAT IT IS: Teenage Emotions merges Lil Yachty’s signature gleeful sing-rap and auto-tuned transmissions with hip-hop bombast, pop and ’80s cultural touchstones. A multimedia celeb, he’s appeared in commercials with LeBron James and Carly Rae Jepsen and has modeled for Nautica and Urban Outfitters. Known for a playful style, he’s sampled sounds from Mario Bros., Charlie Brown and the Rugrats theme. Thematically, he’s managed to wax poetic on everything from cotton candy to scenes from Pixar films. But on his upcoming album Teenage Emotions, Lil Yachty is proving that he’s no joke.
