Lil Yachty “66” Video: Watch Him Explore the Woods With Trippie Redd
The video, co-directed by Yachty, Drew Kirsch and Mihailo Andic, works around an apparent inability to film the two rappers together. Through vertical and horizontal split-frames, the clip captures Yachty bouncing from a suburban home to a nearby forest, while Trippie builds a bonfire and waves a torch in the woods.
DY Krazy and Steve Lean produced the track, built around a crescendoing synth loop and hi-hats. Yachty and Redd use the opportunity to flaunt their wealth. The title comes from the hook, in which the self-declared King of Teens declares his retirement plans: "14, 14, high school, servin' beans/Dropped out, now I'm rich, flexin' 'til I'm 66."
Trippie, for his part, opens the first verse with a memorable description of the biological effects of being a hater. It's a nice reminder to watch your health.
"Flexin' for these bands, finna pop out/Boolin' on the block I got my Glock out/I just pulled up in a Bentley/All the hatred go right to your fuckin' kidney," Redd raps.
The video comes days before the expected release of a new Lil Yachty project. He announced in July that he plans to drop a new EP on his birthday, otherwise known as Aug. 23. The Quality Control signee also is involved in the rumored Glacier Boyz project with Gucci Mane and Migos.
