Lil Yachty Stars in New Sprite Ad With LeBron James
In it, LeBron assures you he's not trying to sell you Sprite before Lil Boat hops on the piano and sings a bit of "Minnesota." The 2016 XXL Freshman, playing a white piano in an icy room while rocking a green jacket, changes the words to match the advertisement, spitting, "Cold like it's my soda!"
In other Yachty-related news, the Atlanta rapper recently collaborated with Zara Larsson for the remix to "Ain't My Fault." The songs marks the first time Yachty has crossed over into the EDM scene. On the record, Lil Boat spits, “Where’s your thot?/Called my friends like,/‘What you caught last night?’/If the ass right and you ask right you might spend the night/Sitting so informal with the Sailing Team and we just might stat a dinner fight/need a White chick that’s Kylie Jenner right/need a Black chick to cook my dinner right."
Yachty also recently linked with Gucci Mane for "Bentley Coupe." Gucci Mane talked about the new generation of Atlanta rap in the cover story for XXL’s fall issue. The Trap God essentially says he's trying his best to understand and appreciate the new, different sounds that are coming out of ATL.
“There’s a different sound to some of the stuff that’s going on,” Gucci Mane said. “I’m forcing myself to like it because, it’s different. It’s not what I grew up listening to. It’s not the stuff I would generally play in my car, but if everybody else like it, who am I to say they’re stupid or that they’re wrong?”
