Did Vic Mensa Throw Shots at Lil Yachty?
The video clip of the barb is making its way around the internet. The footage is short, and full context is not given. But the Roc Nation rapper can be heard clearly saying "Fuck is Lil Yachty?," before going into a song a split second later.
Yachty has been the target of hip-hop purists for a while now, and has gotten into spats with the likes of Funkmaster Flex, Ebro and Anderson .Paak about his lack lyrical dexterity. He might have even been a target of J. Cole's on his record "Everybody Dies."
Lil Boat recently announced his debut album Teenage Emotions is finally finished. According to the Atlanta rapper, the project will have different vibes, including a throwback feel. “[Teenage Emotions] kind of got an ’80s, ’90s vibe on some of the tracks,” Yachty said of his new project during a recent interview. “It’s called Teenage Emotions, so it caters to a teenager’s everyday lifestyle: heartbreak, happiness, that vibe of when you’re waking up in the morning, getting dressed and want to dance. It’s not just bars or straight mumble rap, it goes down different lanes. I be rapping real hard on this one, I be pop singing on this, and I be talking about being lost in love on this one, then back to ‘fuck you, suck my dick.’”
