LIL YACHTY RIDES THE WAVES

At a dinner to celebrate the hotly anticipated Teenage Emotions set from Lil Yachty (due tonight via Quality Control/Motown/Capitol), this group of important folks gathered to receive their nautical nicknames. For example, Capitol Music Group topper Steve Barnett is "Big Luxury Yachty." Interestingly, our publication is known as "bilge." Seen just before trimming the mainsails are (l-r) Motown SVP A&R Zeke Lewis, QC's Coach K and Pee, Lil Yachty, Spotify's Troy Carter, iHeartMedia's Doc Wynter, Barnett, Capitol promo domo Greg Marella, Motown ruler Ethiopia Habtemariam and Capitol SVP Urban Promo Azim Rashid.
