Even though Lil Yachty floated through with his debut album Teenage Emotions last May, the self-proclaimed “King of the Teens” has a hankering for more music. On the wee hours of Thursday morning (Aug 31), Yachty previewed a new song on Twitter and Instagram with the succinct caption, “Lil Boat 2 otw.”
With his vocals coated in Auto-Tune, Yachty glides through the spacey track with celebratory lines. “Self-made n—a with a self-made crew,” croons Lil Boat. In March 2016, Yachty paddled his way into to success with the release of Lil Boat. The lighthearted mixtape boasted a bevy of bangers — including his biggest solo single to date, “One Night” (which peaked at No. 49 on the Billboard Hot 100) and his star-studded remix for “Minnesota,” with Quavo and Young Thug.
Earlier this week, Yacthy was announced as one of the performers slated to touch down in Chicago this November for Red Bull Sound Select. Joining him will be Young Thug, Kehlani, Khalid and Migos.
Take a look at Yachty’s snippet below.
