Lil Yachty Has a Hard Time Ranking Drake’s Albums
As much as someone loves a certain artist, sometimes it's easy to forget the artist's complete discography on the spot. In a recent interview with Montreality, Lil Yachty was asked to rank Drake's albums and took several tries to get them all in order.
When Lil Yachty was asked about Drake, he first laughs and asks for a Calipari pack. After expressing how much love he has for Drake, he is asked to rank his albums. He starts over and over again, asking once for the names of some of the albums. He also changes his order multiple times. Once he gets them down, he ranked them as such: Take Care, Views, So Far Gone, Thank Me Later, What a Time to Be Alive, and If You're Reading This It's Too Late.
In the rest of the video, Lil Yachty describes his two full-time jobs before rapping. Working at McDonald's was "one of the worst experiences ever" while dressing up as an asylum patient for Six Flags Fright Fest and jumping out of a locker "like 30 times a day" was much more fun. He also says Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life is his favorite cartoon character.
He later spits an unreleased verse that he recorded with Swizz Beatz and shouts out the A$AP crew, especially Ian Connor, for picking him for Kanye's fashion show and album release at Madison Square Garden. He's also got a lot of respect for Kendrick Lamar since he's one of the few who truly understands him: "He's just talented, bro, and he understands all eras. [...] He understood me. I would never expect him to fucking get me—understand me. He knows what I like. He gets what I do."
At the end, Lil Yachty sends a message to the youth: "All the time, every time, stay positive. Believe in yourself. Follow your dreams. Chase your dreams. Fuck the haters because niggas be hatin'. Niggas are going to hate. They may not hate on you like they hate on me because they fuckin' hate me but niggas gon' hate, bro. You can't let that get in the way of your vision. No one's gonna believe in your vision like you are. Push yourself."
